The Capitals took a 7-0 dump on the Flyers, but some measure of revenge (Momentum? Enforcement? What's this bullshit supposed to be about again?) was gained with a full line brawl in the third period. The highlight was Ray Emery skating the length of the ice to fight Braden Holtby, who wanted none of it and got pounded for his pacifism.
Emery was named the third star of the night by Daily News writer Frank Seravalli, because Philly.
So this is totally the start of a Flyers turnaround, right? Well:
Holmgren says Downie has a concussion from fight. Lecavalier has a facial injury and will miss time.

Oh, and this happened:
Love hockey, but Flyers are part of reason it remains a niche sport. Shameful tonight (including Philly radio team.)
