Meanwhile, Connor Hellebuyck continued to dominate since he was yanked in Game 3, making 30 saves to secure his second consecutive shutout and clinch Winnipeg's first-ever series win.

Couturier's long shot found its way past Murray and sent the Flyers' bench jumping to its feet. "I tried to get it up (over his glove), but he was there". "... No question he's one of the guys our guys look to for leadership". "(A) lucky bounce, but we'll take 'em".
