WASHINGTON - The Flyers grew up a little Friday night. They channeled the spirit of their late owner and the composure of their goaltender and the determination of their coach. They withstood the Fury the Capitals seek to unleash every night at the Verizon Center, but it was the Flyers who had the successful road trip. They managed to steal Game 5, 2-0, and close the gap against the Capitals to three games to two. How? Outshot, 37-8, through the first 46 minutes, but still they led, 1-0. They were outshot 44-11 overall, franchise record for fewest shots, and goaltender Michal Neuvirth was wonderful, but it was much more than him. "Ah, stats are stats," said Ryan White, who was credited with the Flyers' first goal.

The Flyers were looking for any kind of spark to keep their season alive. Who knew it would come from a fourth-line right winger who played five NHL games this season? Colin McDonald made his first Flyers playoff game a memorable one. The physical play of the 31-year-old McDonald played an important role in the Flyers' 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Wednesday. Trailing three games to one in the best-of-seven series, the Flyers head to Washington for Game 5 on Friday. "He was great," Flyers winger Wayne Simmonds said of McDonald.

After a dynamic rookie season, Shayne Gostisbehere's first NHL playoff series had been relatively quiet. Until Wednesday night. Gostisbehere celebrated his 23rd birthday by scoring the first Stanley Cup playoff goal of his young career, firing a one-timer from the center point to give the Flyers a 1-0 first-period lead against the Capitals. It was the Flyers' first power-play goal in the series, ending an 0-for-13 drought. They entered the game as the only NHL team not to have a power-play tally in this year's playoffs.

Alex Ovechkin is the most feared goal scorer in the NHL, and although he scored in Washington's 4-1 win on Saturday over the Flyers, he has made his biggest contribution in their playoff series by literally throwing his weight around. A major reason the Capitals hold a two-games-to-none lead in their best-of-seven series is that the 6-foot-3, 239-pound Ovechkin has been pounding the Flyers with some killer checks. Ovechkin knocked Sean Couturier out of the series with a clean but hard hit Thursday in the Caps' opening, 2-0 win over the Flyers.

WASHINGTON - For the Flyers, it was a goal that will live in infamy. Goalie Steve Mason, whose superb play carried the team into the playoffs, allowed a Jason Chimera goal from beyond center ice that gave Washington a 2-0 second-period lead, keying the Capitals' 4-1 victory Saturday night before a raucous crowd at the Verizon Center. The Capitals, outshot by a 42-23 margin but getting another stellar performance from goalie Braden Holtby, have a two-games-to-none lead in the best-of-seven series, which resumes Monday at the Wells Fargo Center.

WASHINGTON - After it was over and the Flyers had dropped a 4-1 decision to Washington on Saturday night, captain Claude Giroux looked and sounded stunned. "I'm not too sure what to say, to be honest," he said softly. "I think we played a good game, but at the end of the day, we have to win the game. " The Flyers outshot the Capitals, 42-23, after managing just 19 shots in their 2-0 loss in Game 1. Now they head home for Games 3 and 4. "We've been playing well at home this year," Giroux said.

WASHINGTON - The Flyers believe the blueprint for tying their first-round playoff series with Washington is simple: more discipline, more offensive creativity, more traffic in front of Capitals goalie Braden Holtby. The teams will meet in Game 2 at the Verizon Center on Saturday night. The Flyers managed just eight shots over the last two periods in their 2-0 loss in Thursday's opener. They also allowed Washington six of the last seven power-play chances. That has to change if the Flyers are going to return home with a split of the first two games.

WASHINGTON - If the Flyers are going to have any chance to upset top-seeded Washington, they need to jump-start their power play. Excluding the meaningless season finale against the Islanders - both lineups included several players who usually sit in the press box - the Flyers' power play is 0 for 17 in the last five games. In the series-opening 2-0 loss Thursday in Washington, the Flyers were 0 for 4 on the power play, including three failed opportunities in a scoreless opening first period.

WASHINGTON - The seminal moment occurred in a press box in Raleigh, N.C. In mid-November, with nary a bruise to complain about, Brayden Schenn found himself with a bird's-eye view of his teammates as they played the Carolina Hurricanes. Five goals in his first 16 games, too many nights in which he mustered a shot or two, a hit or two, a stretch of eight games before that night in which he mustered only a single goal - all had conspired to bounce him so far down the depth chart that new coach Dave Hakstol thought his new team had a better chance with Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, Chris Vandevelde, Ryan White or Scott Laughton on the ice than the former fifth overall draft pick.

WASHINGTON - Flyers center Sean Couturier could do nothing but attempt to brace himself when he saw Washington Capitals left winger Alex Ovechkin barreling toward him. The 6-foot-3, 239-pound Ovechkin, a seven-time 50-goal scorer, can also pack some pop, and he leveled Couturier into the boards at the red line with 8 minutes, 49 seconds left in the second period. No penalty was called on what appeared to be a clean but awfully hard hit. That ended the evening for Couturier, who appeared to be seriously injured and went right to the dressing room.
