As we wrote earlier, Monday’s Washington Capitals-Philadelphia Flyers rookie game was a bit of a mess. There were four fights, some lost teeth (more on that later), and I was almost twice by a referee who insisted on heaving every broken stick into the photo spot between the benches.

So much for the whole “let’s not turn it into a rodeo” thing.

In the end, the Flyers scored a solitary goal and held on for the shutout.

Below, take a look at some photos of what can loosely be described as a hockey game.

    Kinda sucks when your teams are 0-2 against Philly in one day.

    Missed the stream… any chance it’s up on Monumental to view at my leisure?

    …and, of course, the Goat’s Blood Drinkers (people who call themselves Caps’ fans, yet pollute the blogs with a constant stench of negativity rather than thoughtful analysis) will now start questioning the ability of the Coach to direct his players. Whatever.

    Oates didn’t coach the game. The Hershey coach was the bench coach.
