The imposters dressed as the Washington Capitals did not play up to their kidnapping victims’ standards on Sunday afternoon. Hosting the vastly inferior Philadelphia Flyers (at least, inferior when compared to the real Capitals), the fake Capitals seemed stuck in the mud. Even with a ton of power-play opportunities, the Copita1s couldn’t win this one.
Mark Streit beat Braden Holtby with a deflection late in the first period to put the Flyers up. That lead held for most of the second period, until Alex Ovechkin scored a power-play goal with an Ovi shot from the Ovi spot.
Wayne Simmonds scored the game-winner for the Flyers with a great release (and bad coverage by Alzner) just four minutes into the third. Then Jakub Voracek got an empty netter. The Caps played like a butt.
Flyers beat Caps 3-1. Philadelphia phugly.
