Sean Couturier tells us what it was like to shut down Evgeni Malkin

17 Comments

The work Sean Couturier did in the first round against Penguins superstar forward and probable league MVP Evgeni Malkin was truly something to marvel at. After all, the eighth overall pick in the 2011 draft shouldn’t be the guy that’s able to lock down a guy like Malkin. If anything else he should be intimidated… Right? Not so much as the Flyers finished off the Penguins in Game 6 this afternoon.

Check out Couturier telling NBC’s Brian Engblom what it was like to move out of the first round and handling Evgeni Malkin.
