The Washington Capitals were dominated by the Philadelphia Flyers on the road one night after playing perhaps their best game of the season in Tuesday’s shutout of Carolina. Head coach Adam Oates said it was apparent his team didn’t have the jump to compete, for whatever reason.

“We had a terrible start. The first shift and then down quick, playing against a team that needs it as bad as us and we had no answer for them.”

“It’s our first bad game in while and I think it was all of us and we looked a little tired,” Oates continued. “We didn’t have enough fight to fight back through them. I think it’s a little bit of the produce with the league right now because of the lockout with scheduling. Teams are tired. We will chalk it up to that and find ways to work on stuff.”
