Game summary from Comcast DC (Chuck Gormley):
PHILADELPHIA -- Instant analysis of the Capitals’ 5-4 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers Sunday night at the Wells Fargo Center:
Pivotal play I: Ruslan Fedotenko was left uncovered at the left side of the post for a tap-in from Kimmo Timonen with 1:34 gone in the overtime period.
Pivotal play II: With 9.5 seconds remaining in regulation and goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov pulled for the extra attacker, Timonen sent the game into overtime with a rising slapshot from the point that sailed past Braden Holtby’s glove hand.
Pivotal play III: With 5:04 gone in the third period and the score tied, Caps rookie defenseman Steve Oleksy drilled Flyers captain Claude Giroux with a clean, hard, open-ice hit. Jacob Voracek raced to Giroux’s defense and got into his first NHL fight against Oleksy. Voracek received two minutes for instigation and another two minutes for instigation while wearing a visor. Ironically, Oleksy is playing without a visor for the first time in his career so that he does not get called for that penalty. On the ensuing four-minute power play the Caps got goals from Marcus Johansson and Alex Ovechkin to take control of the game.
