Flyers Announcer Says The Capitals Don't Compete

↵

“Washington right now is just helping the Flyers’ cause. I mean, Philadelphia has not razzled and dazzled this hockey game, but Washington has just not shown up tonight. There’s no spark, there’s no buzz about them. They have nothing going on at all….I don’t care who you’re missing, you can’t compete like this. There are far less talented teams that will give you a better fight than this….The guys that are in should know better, to come out and compete harder than this. It makes no sense at all….I don’t know what to expect from Washington. As a hockey player, you’re supposed to have pride. They looked like they had nothing to give those first two periods.”

This is from Philadelphia Flyers radio color commentator Chris Therien during the second period of the Capitals’ 3-2 loss to the Flyers on Tuesday. Pretty hard to argue that.
