Kimmo had a monster game. I was on the tank wagon, but kimmo doesn't deserve that. Guy shows up to work everyday.

I remember him often being a beast against Crosby as well.

I've always thought Rinaldo should've had a spot in this lineup. He is a great player for his role. Love the announcers giving him respect.

Not really. He's kind of been a beast for the last week or so. 3rd multi-point game of the last 4. He's gotten way too much flack this year but that's what happens when you're the captain of a struggling Flyers team.

Yes, yes, we know.

Another sub .900 save percentage outing, another game where Bryz was robbed of the first star. We all agree with you. Clearly team MVP. Clearly played outstanding tonight.

I'm sorry (what a win!) but this team isn't gonna do anything in the playoffs with the personnel on defense and goaltender. This team needs a high draft pick I firmly believe.

Bryz put up sold numbers tonight.

The guy has been a ~45point D-man for 13 years... and still gets so little praise. Averages 43 points per 82 games played over his career.

* he also moved into the top 50 all time highest point scoring Dmen tonight... is now 49th all time.

I recall him making an incredible side to side save in the first period.

While being very, very good defensively. I love his creativity in his own end as well.

Is too much to ask to actually look at the goals that were scored, and not just the save percentage? Tip in from point blank range, breakaway, shot in the shot from a terrible turnover, one time blast on the PP from Ovechkin.

I'd say the last three goals were saveable. I don't care what anyone says .862 save % is piss poor. Goalie needs to be consistent, no consistency whatsoever from the him, especially with that brutal cap hit. Makes me sick.

Stay in the goaltending thread with your negativity and criticism. We're celebrating a win here.

pts do not= demon giroux. Giroux can rack up pts in his sleep, but its his physical game, and his emotion that this team really feeds off of and that he feeds off of. First time all year where we saw some huge emotion from him.

Come on. He didn't have a super duper spectactular game, but he did play very well. He kept the Flyers in the game when the rest of the team decided to sit back.

Nothing against the guy, but he only ever brings up stats. I agree with you. What Giroux has done tonight was off the stat sheet. You could see the fire in his eyes. He wanted this win badly. TBH, maybe that horrible turnover was a good thing. It got him pissed.

Game summary from Comcast DC (Chuck Gormley):

Quote:
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.
