Flyers Vs. Capitals: Philadelphia Flies Past Caps In Second Period, Opens 4-0 Lead

The Washington Capitals considered Tuesday's game with the Philadelphia Flyers a measuring stick game. After the second period, said stick is broken into pieces.

Three goals from the Philadelphia Flyers punctuated a period where the Caps were outplayed en route to a 4-0 deficit after 40 minutes.

Marc-Andre Bourdon opened the scoring in the second period with a goal from the point that deflected off a few sticks in front and past Tomas Vokoun at 7:23. Wayne Simmonds continued the bleeding at 14:19 when the play he started ended with him deflecting the puck into the net, while Maxime Talbot put the finishing touches when his goal bounced high off Vokoun and behind him at 17:33.

Despite giving up three goals on 12 shots in the period, Vokoun finished it as Michal Neuvirth remained on the bench. The Caps had 10 shots on goal, but Ilya Bryxgalov stopped them all to keep the Flyers in control.
