Rooks Drop One Against Flyers' Rooks

As per Tarik:

Flyers win, 5-3. Patrick McNeill, Nicklas Backstrom and Mathieu Perreault scored for the Caps. Darren Machesny played the first period in goal, allowing two scores, both on the power play. Michal Neuvirth played the next 40 minutes, yielding three goals, two of which came on the power play.

Defenseman Sean Collins, meantime, left the game in the third period with an apparent knee injury.

Looks like the Flyers took advantage of some key power plays and our boys come home with a good learning experience. Too bad there was no media coverage other than Tarik's blog on the game for Caps fans.
