Flyers Schedule 2011: Meeting With Caps Highlights Upcoming Slate

Time to move on from Mike Richards return to Philadelphia. The Flyers have a full, three-game schedule this week, headlined by a key matchup against the Eastern Conference-leading Washington Capitals.

Follow the Flyers loss to Richards' Kings, Chris Pronger said, "I think the fans showed their appreciation -- and then they got over it quickly." The Flyers will have to get over it too and be prepared to compete this week. Their toughest test will be Thursday at 7 p.m. ET against the Caps, who have not lost yet this season. The game is in Philly and on CSN.

The Flyers, who sit at 3-1 and second in the Atlantic Division, start the week Tuesday against the Senators at 7:30 p.m. ET on CSN. Ottawa has not been go so far this season, but the game could still be an important barometer for Philadelphia. In their last time out, the Senators gave the Caps all Washington could handle before falling 2-1. 

Philadelphia wraps up the week on Saturday with a home game against the St. Louis Blues at 7 p.m. ET on CSN.
