Bowey's 3rd shift, Orpik again... his 2nd was with Orlov... apparently they want to give him some support starting out.

12:42 left 1st, the Flyers come down hard and Couturier scores on a rebound- no help by the D for Grubauer.

Now Eller a mini breakaway... whiff... stoppage... 10:45 left, Ness blocks a snap shot with his ankle, and finally hobbles off...

Ovechkin(?) loses a faceoff, but the Caps press... Carlson, to... Kuznetzov in close, to...

Vrana!

1-1!


10:01 left, Caps to the PP on a slash...

At least twice, I've seen Bowey do (for him) a standard pass that Philly has picked off easily- I think he's surprised by the speed of the NHL game so far...

Caps are at 73% on faceoffs (11/15)... Ness back in, so no biggie on the stinger... Grubauer save and save again... 4:15 left 1st, would be nice to get another in here before the break...

Grubauer BIG save at 3:54, but Carlson to the box for slashing...

1:01 left on the Philly PP, but we go 4 on 4 as the Flyers have too many (7) on...

Caps on the short PP now, killed... Carlson throws a pass up the middle, picked off... Laughton chases the puck in, Grubauer comes out and clears it, but... Laughton gets control, easy ENSHG for the Flyers late.

2-1 Flyers, end 1st, Grubauer making another good save at the horn.

2nd on... 17:18 left, Carlson to the box for (what else) slashing...

Voracek "dazzles" against Bowey (loses his stick), Simmonds buries it.

3-1.

13:00 left 2nd, no SOGs for the Caps this period...

Bowey burned again starting that- the kid is just not ready.,, 4-1...

Backstrom!! :13 later!!

4-2.

3rd on...

understatement is to say Bumper's posters are despondent over the D play and the machinations of the past offseason. Can't say as I blame them... this is going to be a desperate to make the playoffs season.

Lots of guitar noodling, tonight... Caps turn it over in the neutral zone, 6-2 easily...

7-2, the wheels are off the wagon...

8:27 left reg a scrum breaks out, Wilson in the middle, but no punches thrown... Wilson and someone each get 10:00 misconducts...

8-2...

thankfully, time expires.

Dreadful 8-2 loss.

6 games in, and toast.

Ovechkin, Backstrom, Kuznetsov, and even Holtby on fire (if he get to 35 wins this season, he's a lock for the Vezina).

Sad.
