The bad blood between the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals continued, as the two teams engaged in a line brawl in the first period of Wednesday’s game.
Oh yeah, the Flyers managed to hang on for the 6-4 win over their Metropolitan Division foes. The melee, however, was a topic of discussion afterward. It also led to the ejection of Flyers’ forward Vincent Lecavalier, who found himself in a secondary altercation with John Erskine. Lecavalier is known best for his talent with the puck than his fisticuffs.
“That’s a bad trade-off for us. But sometimes guys are standing up for each other and that’s the way it goes sometimes.”
