Absolute warrior.

Sean Couturier was forced to miss Game 4 against the Penguins after he was involved in an ugly collision with teammate Radko Gudas in practice Tuesday.

Couturier returned for Game 5, scoring the game-winning goal with 1:15 left to propel the Flyers to a 4-2 win and send the series back to Philadelphia.

Couturier then exploded for five points, including a hat trick, in Sunday’s Game 6 elimination loss.

Reports are now surfacing of what Couturier sacrificed just to continue playing:

Couturier had a career offensive season, recording 31 goals and 76 points in 82 games. He was nominated for the Selke Trophy for the first time in his career.

A heroic effort from a heroic player.
