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 - 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 - 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.

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.

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.

The Flyers are listed as 33-1 underdogs to win their first Stanley Cup since 1975. No playoff team has worse odds. "Those odds are obviously because we play the Caps in the first round," left winger Jake Voracek said after practice Tuesday in Voorhees. "I never really pay attention to what other people are saying about our chances. . . . There were so many articles this year and so many people saying on Twitter that we weren't a playoff team, that we should tank. Blah, blah blah.

 Less than 24 hours after a disheartening showdown defeat in Detroit, the Flyers lost to the NHL's worst team Thursday and damaged their playoff hopes.  Toronto 4, Flyers 3.  In overtime.  Jake Gardiner scored on a power-play blast with 2 minutes, 9 seconds left to give the Maple Leafs the win.  The Flyers suffered their third straight loss and their playoff chances took a hit - after the team entered the week in the driver's seat.  The Flyers had a second-period goal negated because of incidental contact, ruled because a sliding Claude Giroux brushed into goalie Jonathan Bernier.

A day after Flyers general manager Ron Hextall announced that defenseman Andrew MacDonald would not play Wednesday in a crucial game in Detroit, there could now be a change of heart. MacDonald, who was slammed into the boards during a 6-2 loss at Pittsburgh on Sunday, participated fully during a brief practice Tuesday at the Skate Zone. Even though MacDonald is still listed as day to day with an upper-body injury, he will make the trip to Detroit. "A decision will be made [Wednesday]

Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald might have suffered a concussion when he was slammed into the boards Sunday in a 6-2 loss in Pittsburgh. He will not be able to play Wednesday in a key game in Detroit, general manager Ron Hextall announced Monday. Hextall would call it only an upper-body injury. Evgeny Medvedev, a healthy scratch for the last 11 games, will replace MacDonald, who is tied for second on the team with a plus-8 rating and has played well since replacing the injured Michael Del Zotto.
