The home-and-home against the Capitals concludes on Saturday night, as the Flyers go for their seventh win in the last eight games.
The Flyers take the ice for the first time in the second half of the season to start a home-and-home against the Washington Capitals.
The Flyers are locked in a seven-game losing streak entering Wednesday’s game. But it’s been nearly as much of a struggle for the Capitals, who enter the game on a four-game losing streak of their own.
It was an ugly game for the Flyers, who trailed 3-1 after the first and lost Carter Hart and Cam Atkinson for the night before allowing six more goals over the final two periods in a 9-2 drubbing to the Washington Capitals.
Bobby Brink makes his NHL debut as the Flyers take on the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night.
For most of the game, they stayed the course, but not in a way that is surviving another team’s push. They controlled large portions of the game with their play. It also helped that the goaltending remained on point, one of the most noticeable consistencies of the first 10 games of the season. The result was a big two points in regulation against a divisional opponent that had only lost in regulation once all season, and silencing an all-time great in the scoring column with a milestone in his sights.
The Flyers suffered a 5-3 loss to the Washington Capitals in the preseason finale on Friday night, finishing with a 2-3-1 record in the preseason.
Lars Eller scored with 39.8 seconds left in the third period, then Conor Sheary got the game-winner with a minute left in overtime to hand the Flyers a 2-1 loss on Saturday night.
Alex Ovechkin scored another pair of goals to bring his season total against the Flyers to eight and his career total to 730, as the Capitals handed the Flyers a 6-3 loss on Saturday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center.
In his first game with the Capitals, Anthony Mantha had a goal and an assist as the Flyers were once again throttled by the opposition, falling to the Capitals, 6-1, on Tuesday night.
Thursday’s game was just another example of how ugly it’s been lately. Washington didn’t have to look their best to put a stranglehold on this game. And on a night when Washington, Boston, and the Islanders all picked up two more points in the standings with wins, the Flyers fell just a little farther behind in the race. Those points are costly no matter when they are lost.
Another mistake-filled game by the Flyers led to another loss, as the Capitals claimed their second win over the Flyers this week, 5-3, at Wells Fargo Center.
Beyond the Flyers 3-2 victory in the exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday afternoon, it was just nice to have hockey back. For the players, it was just nice to get into a competitive game.
The Flyers came away with the win as Scott Laughton scored on a breakaway at 2:40 of overtime to give the Flyers the 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in an exhibition game on Tuesday afternoon.
The Flyers took full advantage of a team without their top player and captain. In the first period, they scored three goals in a span of 4:01. In the second period, they added three more in a span of 4:07. That was more than enough in a 6-1 win on Thursday night that continued the team’s incredible run of success on home ice.
The Flyers were the beneficiaries of three goals off Sabres and scored three more on top of that, rolling to a 6-1 win over the Sabres on Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center.
Even in the years when the Flyers weren't looking like much of a playoff team, they always seemed to have the…
