Flyers Drop Three of the Last Four

Flyers drop three of the last four, 3-1. The always hard to handle Washington Capitals (14-6-4) were the unwelcome guests at the Wells Fargo Center. The host, The (12-7-3) Philadelphia Flyers were reeling after a three-game set with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The 3,000 fans in the Wells Fargo Center greeted the home boys with a resounding, “Let’s Go Flyers” chant that welcome the orange and black to the Wells Fargo ice.

The crowd was enticed into a frenzy when Joel Farabee lit the lamp at the 11:04 mark of the opening stanza that not only gave team Philadelphia a 1-0 lead but got the crowd even louder. Farabee skated around the rink and got the crowd into it.

Alex Ovechkin and the Caps smirked and went to work. TJ Oshie and Zdeno Chara set up Ovechkin to get it even. Dmitry Orlov got it to 2-1 with just 16 seconds left in the second. Mike Jensen supplied the final tally to the 3-1 Washington win. Philadelphia finds itself in a downward spiral that must be corrected ASAP.

NOTES

Ovechkin is now sitting on a career total of 714 goals. Ilya Samsonov was the difference for the Caps in this as he knocked back 36 Flyers shots.

For Philly, Carter Hart was good but, not good enough and stopped 24 shots. The sad part? Flyers fans left the Wells Fargo Center booing their team’s performance. Flyers drop three of the last four with a loss tonight against the Caps.
