Washington Capitals drop Saturday night contest to Flyers

0

The Washington Capitals lost a 2-1 game to the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night at Capital One Arena. The Caps donned their blue W jerseys for this contest, but couldn’t match the sweet look with the game on the ice.

The first period was scoreless as the Flyers led in shots 12-6. The Flyers then scored two goals in the second period from Derick Brassard at 11:18 and Sean Couturier at 15:44. 2-0 was the score after two periods as the Flyers led 14-11 in shots in the second period.

The Caps were better in the third period, overtaking the Flyers 15-6 to put up a total of even 32 shots apiece. They just couldn’t get the equalizer. The rookies had a good game to get the Caps on the board.

John Carlson fed Connor McMichael. McMichael stepped onto the ice and gave a non-looking back pass to Brett Leason for the second of his career at 6:02. 2-1 would be the final score.

That goal was the result of a rookie trio that Peter Laviolette built up early in the third period. It was a trio with Hendrix Lapierre, McMichael and Leason.

Leason told media after the game:

“It’s definitely on your mind because we’re all young, we’re all trying to prove something here. But I think it’s just the coach calling us at that point and you have to go out and do this. that we can to help the team.

Laviolette added:

“I thought in the third this line was good. I thought we were going a step further.

The Caps are hit with TJ Oshie, Anthony Mantha and Nicklas Backstrom all injured. This gave these recruits the chance to prove themselves. The third period sparked a comeback and there came some changes that even one of our backers was asking for, giving the youngsters more playing time.

The Caps host the Buffalo Sabers tomorrow night.
