Flyers snag crucial win over Leafs

PHILADELPHIA—Sean Couturier kept the Philadelphia Flyers' slim playoff hopes alive for at least one more day.

Couturier scored in regulation and also provided the only goal in a shootout as the Flyers edged the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-4 last night.

Radko Gudas, Travis Konecny, and Ryan Hartman also scored for Philadelphia, which remained mathematically alive for a playoff berth.
