The Capitals made one more stop in the state of Pennsylvania to play the Philadelphia Flyers. If this game did anything, it only heightened my hatred for the color orange.
A couple goals for the good guys in the first period to give the Capitals a 2-0 lead heading into the second period. Tip of the hat to the goal scorers Brett Connolly and Lars Eller.
Second period started with a quick response from James van Riemsdyk to get the Flyers on the board. The Capitals snagged two more goals, an unassisted one from Brett Connolly and one that got Tom Wilson inducted into the 20 goal club. The final goal of the high scoring period went to Scott Laughton. Caps continued to lead 4-2.
The third period happened and the Capitals made a bunch of unnecessary penalties, especially toward the end. They got lucky with their kills. A final empty netter from your friendly neighborhood pal Evgeny Kuznetsov sealed the deal.
Caps beat Flyers 5-2.
