Thoughts on Caps domination of Flyers

It looked like the Caps would have their hands full, right up until Alex destroyed Peter Forsberg with a legal but devastating shoulder check. The loss of Forsberg in his first game back from nagging foot injuries completely deflated the entire Flyers team, and the Caps went on to win easily.

Observations on the game:

1) Alexander Semin may not be that fast (we tend to think of all Russian skaters as jet propelled, a la Pavel Bure) but he switches gears as well as anyone. Don't think so? Tell that to Antero Nittymaki and Randy Jones.

2) The Flyers are a very, very slow team.

3) Alex Ovechkin flying up the left side alone on a defenseman just isn't fair.

We'll see you all on Tuesday night.
