PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- The Flyers will look to even up their best-of-seven first-round playoff series with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday as the two teams battle in Game 4 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

After splitting two games in Pittsburgh, the Flyers lost Game 3 on Sunday, 5-1, as Sidney Crosby scored a goal and added three assists for the winners.

The Flyers spent too much time in the penalty box in Game 3, and the Penguins made them pay by going 3 for 7 with the man advantage.

The Flyers need to get Claude Giroux going in this series. The forward had 102 points during the regular season, but he has been held to a single assist through three games in the playoffs.

Flyers forward Sean Couturier was injured during a collision in practice on Tuesday. He will be a gametime decision on Wednesday.

KYW Newsradio's Matt Leon spoke with the Philadelphia Inquirer's Sam Carchidi about tonight's game.
