The beat(ings) goes on for the Flyers in loss to Caps, 6-1. The Flailing Philadelphia Flyers dropped a must win game to the Washington Capitals, 6-1.
A four-goal first period was the harbinger of things not to come. Newly acquired, Anthony Mantha picked up a goal and a helper.
How dominant were the Caps? 11 of their 18 skaters registered at least one point.
Ilya Samsonov, despite the score, was quite busy facing 30 Flyers shots. Brian Elliott stopped 26 of the 32 Washington took at him. I have, in the past, mentioned as Giroux and Voracek go… so go the Flyers. How did they go? The two combined for all of one shot on net. The beat(ings) goes on for the Flyers.
