Not sure what
*gestures broadly towards the last 2.5 hours*
that was all about.
The Caps were just plain terrible against the Philadelphia Flyers in their second game of round-robin play, which is fake hockey and doesn’t matter, and yes this is how I have decided to rationalize this.
Scott Laughton put the Flyers up in the first period after a defensive-zone turnover that we will discuss. Travis Sandheim made it 2-0 in the second period during a rare moment when the Capitals were not on the penalty kill. The third period happened, unfortunately, bringing with it another goal by Laughton. With mercy, new boy Travis Boyd ended the shutout a few moments later.
Flyers beat Caps 3-1.
