Pittsburgh still seriously, truthfully believes Sean Couturier is bad at hockey

New, comments

Keep thinking it, Pittsburgh. He's in your head, just like the Flyers are.

Of all the mayhem that escapes from the Penguins-Flyers rivalry, I think my favorite running gag is that on the Western side of the Commonwealth, they truly believe that Sean Couturier is a bad hockey player.

This next tweet was made during the first period of Wednesday night's 5-3 Flyers win. Couturier went on to hold Evgeni Malkin to nothing while scoring a goal and two assists of his own.

We don't have to beat a dead horse here and tell you how good Couturier is. We've done it a million times before, and we'll probably do it a million more times during the rest of his career. He's an elite defensive forward at 21-years-old regardless of his opponent, and hey .... he has some hands, too.
