After a long summer, hockey is back in Washington. Well, sort of. Arlington. The Flyers rookies come to Kettler Capitals Iceplex on Monday, facing off against the Capitals rookies to conclude camp.
The Caps started off the game with solid goaltending by Brandon Anderson, including two incredible saves in the first period. The first period was very physical, including two fights. Halfway through the game, both teams put in their respective backup goalies.
In the end, the Flyers and the Caps got into four fights, with Tom Wilson in two of them. Caps head coach Adam Oates said he did not want a rodeo, but the game stayed physical. Flyer Taylor Leier, who is a cousin of Caps prospect Boston Leier, scored in the second period for the only goal of the game.
Wilson tweeted after the game:
Chipped my first tooth against Philly today. Finally a hockey player #sorrymom

But this was hardly the worst part of Wilson’s day:
Anyone know what channel the tennis is on in DC? Not having a guide is causing me some trouble.
