Flyers Hold Off Caps

The Flyers were intent on not blowing a three-goal lead for a second straight time to Washington.

Philadelphia scored four unanswered goals to beat Washington, 5-2, Tuesday night. It evened their record to 15-15-4 on the season, and their second win in the last six games.

“Guys talked about not letting that happen again," Matt Read said. "We just amped ourselves up in the locker room.

"We took it as a 0-0 game and we had to come out and get the first goal and stay on our toes and keep them on their heels. Keep getting pucks deep and playing our game.”

Flyers Blow Three-Goal Lead in Third; Lose In Shootout to Caps

There have been a few rock-bottom moments for the Flyers this season.

Chalk Sunday afternoon as another one of those moments.

The Flyers spoiled a six-point effort from its top line, including a three-point game for Michael Raffl. Not only did they allow Washington to force overtime and get a point in the division, they surrendered the second point, losing 5-4 in a shootout to Washington.

Gustafsson Suffers Lower-Body Injury

It wasn't all good news for the Flyers on Wednesday.

Defenseman Erik Gustafsson left the Flyers' 4-1 win over the Capitals in the second period after suffering a lower-body injury.

About seven minutes into the period, Gustafsson blocked a shot by Capitals winger Eric Fehr. The shot hit him in the shin, but that may not be the source of the pain.

Ovechkin hat trick helps doom Devils, 5-1

What a difference two days makes.

Alexander Ovechkin scored a hat trick and added an assist while Braden Holtby stopped 21 of 22 shots as the Capitals beat the New Jersey Devils 5-1.

It was less than 48 hours ago that Troy Brouwer swung his stick in disgust after the Caps gave up two goals and in the third period that started with a 2-1 Caps lead.

Brouwer would net the game's final goal off of an Ovechkin helper in the closing minutes of the third period.

The third period that the Caps played today was as good a period as the Capitals could have hoped for: they stayed out of the box (save a delay of game penalty, the 10th delay penalty in 17 games), outshot the...

Game Day: Winnipeg Jets @ Phoenix Coyotes

It's the clashing of two different eras at the Jobing.com Arena tonight at 7 p.m. EST, as the Winnipeg Jets of the new age face the team they've become since they left Canada fifteen years ago.

They're coming into Phoenix as the only NHL team without a win or a point in 2011-12.  The Coyotes' record against the Winnipeg/Atlanta franchise is 12-1-1, and they are 10-3-1 in their home openers since moving to the desert.  But they will be facing a hungry team with several wild cards in their lineup.
 


The last time these two teams faced one another in February, the Coyotes beat the then-Thrashers 4-3.
