Game #44 Recap - Capitals 4 Flyers 6

The Caps just couldn't come all the way back in this one. One to many mistakes in their own zone cost the team. After the game Coach Boudreau would say, "There was a lot of try there, but we made too many mistakes. We talk about it, we look at it, we work on it. In our zone, we talk about turnovers. I think they got every goal off turnovers." After taking a 1-0 lead in the first the Caps allowed 4 consecutive goals to the visitors. At this point, he Caps lifted Olie Kolzig in favor of Brent Johnson. The team came back with 2 straight goals but it was not enough as the teams traded goals, and Philly ended it with an empty netter. The Caps have little time to think about this one as Ottawa is at the Verizon Center tomorrow.

Of Note:
  • Olie Kolzig played his 693rd game as a Capital tying him with Steve Konowalchuk for 8th place on the All-Time Games Played List.
