#CapsFlyers Postgame Notebook: It's Not Always Sunny In Philadelphia

Caps are left with third loss in four games (1-2-1) after sound Saturday night drubbing in Philadelphia

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

Over his first three seasons with the Capitals, Matt Niskanen missed a total of four games, all of them last season. During that span, whichever pairing Niskanen was on was generally the Caps' top pairing, and if not, it was certainly the team's second best. But Niskanen suffered an upper body injury on Friday in New Jersey, an ailment that has landed him on long-term injured reserve.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

It had been quite a while since the Capitals lost a game by as many as six goals, and it had been even longer since they had surrendered as many as eight goals over the course of a 60-minute game. But the Caps managed both of those ignominious feats on Saturday night at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center, taking an 8-2 drubbing at the hands of the Flyers.

Heading into Friday night's slate of NHL activity, only two teams remained unbeaten on the young season - the New Jersey Devils and the Vegas Golden Knights.

On Friday night in Newark, the Caps take on the New Jersey Devils, who just happen to be sitting atop the Metropolitan Division standings at this early juncture of the campaign.
