Flyers Vs. Capitals Score: Washington Clobbers Philadelphia 5-2

Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov said prior to tonight’s game against the Capitals that he didn’t know much about Alex Ovechkin’s style on the ice.

He knows now.

Ovechkin scored two goals in Washington’s 5-2 rout over Philadelphia, which took place tonight (Oct. 20, 2011) at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Capitals remained perfect in "The City of Brotherly Love," improving to 6-0 while handing the Flyers (4-1-1) their first loss of the season.

Washington took a 2-1 lead in the first period but the Philadelphia defense was able to keep it scoreless throughout the second frame.

Unfortunately, so did the offense.

Flyers center Sean Couturier flicked one in with 15 seconds left in the game, but already down by four, it was too little, too late.
