"I think it's time for our defense and our goalie to win us a game," Scott Hartnell said.
He added that he doesn't believe Bryzgalov has played badly, just that he thinks his goaltender can reach another level with his play.
"You need a goalie who can make those stops," he said. "Not that Bryz has played bad, but we'd love to win 1-0 and get a shutout and move on and get some rest and get some guys healthy."
Who's Hot: Penguins center Jordan Staal has six goals in the last three games, and at least a point in all five games. … Flyers left wing Jaromir Jagr has at least a point in all five games, and seven in all. He's moved from 13th to a tie for eighth with 188 points on the League's all-time playoff scoring leaderboard.
Injury Report: Penguins defenseman Paul Martin has missed the last two games with an undisclosed injury, and is questionable to for Game 6. … Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros is out with a back injury. Defenseman Nicklas Grossmann is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
Stat Pack: The Penguins have outscored the Flyers 8-0 at even strength in the last two games. The Flyers' last five-on-five goal was 27 seconds into the third period of Game 3.
Puck Drop: Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin has just two goals in the series -- both coming in Game 4 -- and would like to do more. However, his zeal to be better earned him two trips to the penalty box in Game 5, and he also put a big hit on teammate Sidney Crosby. He knows he has to be more in control if he wants to contribute in Game 6.
"Last game, [I took] stupid penalties," Malkin said Saturday. "I'm a little bit nervous. … Of course it's hard to control the emotions. Every whistle, the puck drops and two [defensemen] start coming to you and start pushing you, it's tough. It's hard, but you need to control it."
