GDT: Flyers at Washington

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/preview?gameId=240125023
WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia Flyers, winners of four of their last five games, begin a three-game road trip Sunday night against the Washington Capitals.

Philadelphia has won two in a row on the road and is 4-2-1-0 since a six-game winless skid away from home from December 10-29.

The Flyers posted a 2-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday as Jeremy Roenick scored twice. It was Roenick's second multi-goal game of the season. Robert Esche made 25 saves in his fifth straight start as goaltender Jeff Hackett is out indefinitely with vertigo.

Washington has lost two in a row and three of its last four. It started life without Jaromir Jagr on Friday with a 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers. Earlier that day, Jagr, who had 46 points, was traded to the New York Rangers for Anson Carter.

Carter is expected to in the lineup for Washington but defenseman Sergei Gonchar will be sidelined. Gonchar suffered a shoulder injury against Florida and will miss the next 2-4 weeks. Peter Bondra, who has 17 goals, also left Friday's game with back spasms.

The Flyers won the first encounter with the Capitals this season, 4-2, on November 6. Washington is 2-7-0 in its last nine meetings with Philadelphia.

Flyers put another in the W column

4-2

Comrie, Gags (mini-streak), Markov, and Amonte

Fedoruk fights someone - he is getting more ice time now

Brashear stares at someone and later falls in the corner

Expect a beatdown of Darcy Verot if he plays, it seems the guy just loves to throw a cheapshot and get his face beat in. Should be fun.

Tony Amonte will hit the post.

Someone on the team will have a wide open net, and chose to pass the puck.

Flyers score three goals, all when Anson Carter is playing. Carter is too busy laughing to play effective defense.

Win by 2 goals
Flyers - 4
Caps - 2

if the Flyers come to play, they should win but they could throw out a stinker too.

I think win 4-2 isn't too far-fetched. Ollie is pissed and the defense is horrific and it gets worse with the loss of Gonchar. Washington still has some good forwards though, the defense needs to come prepared to play. Gagne is setting up plays, but other guys don't finish sometime, he stole the puck from Noronen and fed Kapanen in the slot, Kapanen had a whole net and I think the puck bounced off his stick.

Recchi scores his 18th with a laser under the post.

Caps are getting pretty physical, and it looks like Amonte is hurt. He got run at by Berry, and Fedoruk went over and tried to get him to go but he wouldn't. Now Amonte got hit again, don't know how but he is down, and I think the Fridge is goign to have to lay a beat down.

That did not look good. I hope he's ok, but it looked like he bent that back. :/

Ugly, looks like a knee/ankle injury. Clarke might have to make a trade for a forward. Hopefully not.

Even though it's 2-0 I still think we need to see a fight...nm Brashear is angry and actually wants to hurt people.

Id be surprised if Amonte isnto done for the season, that looked real bad.

Also, it was no surprise it was done by a Flyer. :mad:

Well, from a crosscheck from a Cap.

It was a stupid penatly, but I'll take any sort of physical play out of Brashear now a days.
edit: Was Witt the guy whose crosscheck injured Amonte? If so, then good for Brashear.

He should have just dropped the gloves and pounded him, then he would either left the Flyers shorthanded for 2 mins or 5, rather than 4.

It was a breakaway, the D has to not make stupid mistakes like that.

And Steve, Witt wouldn't have dropped em with Brash. It ended up not hurting the team, and it sent a message. I woudl have prefered a beat down, but that's about all we're going to get out of Brash anymore.
