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.
