Get a good look at the Caps because following tonight, the two clubs won't play each other for another 100 days, on January 21 at Washington, and won't meet again at the Wells Fargo Center until March 18 - a span of 156 days and 67 games in between... Claude Giroux had a pair too, one directly a result of Couturier's hustle. Grubauer's poke-check attempt came back to Laughton, who put the puck into the empty net for a shorthanded goal with 1:02 left in the first period.
"I just tried to read the play and he was kind of diving out there", Laughton said. "We might just junk this game, I don't know".
Wayne Simmonds and Valtteri Filppula also scored for the Flyers in their home opener. It reinforced that the Capitals have more flaws than in years past when they were regular season titans, and it'll take time to work through some of these deficiencies.
"We were absolutely stupid with the puck", Coach Barry Trotz said. With the third pairing lacking experience, the Capitals have leaned on their top four more, mixing the defense duos within games to typically have at least one veteran on the ice at all times.
Quietly, Elliott had a solid game in goal for the Flyers, making 21 saves on 23 shots and picking up his third win of the season.
Philly's offense dominated from start to finish in a complete game that could signal this year's team could make a playoff push.
"We need to realize that we can't just give away the puck all the time", Backstrom said. "If we don't realize that quick, it's going to be a long season. We have to manage the puck better".
The Flyers and Caps meet for the first time this season, its the first and only Metropolitan Division opponent of the year for the Flyers in their first 21 games of the season until they play the NY Islanders on November 22...
Giroux followed midway through the second to make it 4-1. Filppula took a feed from Jordan Weal and flipped it over Grubauer for a 5-2 lead. Giroux helped set up both of Sean Couturier's goals in the first and third period and he added two of his own in the second and third frames.
The goals really kept coming for the Flyers in the second period. Laughton's goal was the Flyers' first short-handed score of the season and came after he intercepted a pass by Washington defenseman John Carlson.
NOTES: Capitals D Matt Niskanen was placed on long-term injured reserve after suffering an upper-body injury Friday night against the New Jersey Devils. On LTIR, he must miss 10 games and 24 days, which means Niskanen isn't eligible to return until November 7 at Buffalo.
Without Niskanen, and on the back end of back-to-backs, the Caps were a mess in the defensive zone and Grubauer couldn't stave off the Flyers. I'd say that first line is working out just fine.
2 Jake Voracek now has eight points - all assists - in his first five games. This season, nine Flyers have already tallied a marker. With Niskanen out, Washington recalled 22-year-old defenseman Madison Bowey from the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League.
Capitals forwards Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov, who entered the game tied for the team lead with 10 points, each finished with a minus-4 rating.
The turnovers increased in the second half of the game, just as players got exhausted, and it was a recipe for disaster.
