Michal Neuvirth could see this question coming after Game 2, as he sat next to Steve Mason in the visiting locker room at the Verizon Center, the two of them putting forks to paper plates loaded with grilled chicken and pasta with red sauce. A couple of hours earlier, a puck had completed a 101-foot journey by sliding through Mason's legs and into the net for a stunning, freakish goal in a Flyers loss to the Capitals, and Neuvirth didn't even have to raise his head to issue a preemptive two-word response to anyone who wanted a postgame comment from him. "No way," he said, and kept on digging into his dinner.

Washington's overwhelming advantage in special teams has put the Capitals on the brink of sweeping the Flyers in their best-of-seven opening round Stanley Cup series. Once again the Flyers couldn't score on the power play or stop the Capitals when they had the man advantage during Monday's 6-1 loss to the Capitals at the Wells Fargo Center. The Capitals are up three games to none heading into what could be the clinching game Wednesday in Philadelphia. The Flyers are 0 for 13 this series on the power play after failing to score on the five times they had the man advantage on Monday.

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 - 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 - 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.

WASHINGTON - Ed Snider would have liked the Flyers' lunch-pail effort Thursday at the red-clad Verizon Center, but he would not have enjoyed the result. Washington 2, Flyers 0. In a physical matchup, the top-seeded Capitals took a lead of one game to none in the best-of-seven first-round series that resumes here on Saturday night. Making matters worse, the Flyers lost invaluable center Sean Couturier to a second-period injury. Couturier appeared to injure his left shoulder severely, and he will be re-evaluated Friday.

WASHINGTON - There is a fine line between, "Hey we were in front of the net all game" and, "We were in the guy's grill all game. " It is a line that separates how a game is characterized and how it is often won. "I think sometimes we go to the net, and we just cruise by it," Wayne Simmonds was saying before Thursday night's 2-0 loss to Washington. "We don't stop. You can flash by the net as much as you want, but if you don't stop you're not going to get that second or even third opportunity.

If the Flyers want to shock the hockey world and knock off Washington in the opening round of the NHL playoffs, it's advisable they stick to Capitals left winger Alex Ovechkin like his favorite deodorant. Ovechkin led the NHL this season with 50 goals - including a league-best 19 on the power play - and how the Flyers defend him and his dangerous linemates, center Nicklas Backstrom and right winger T.J. Oshie, will play a major role in determining the seven-game series. "They have everything - skill, speed and size," left winger Michael Raffl said after practice Wednesday in Voorhees, where the Flyers prepared for Thursday's series opener in Washington.
