Season Ends As Caps Shutout Flyers 1-0

First Period

Up-and-down stanza

Both teams dominate at times

Flyers surviving

 

Undisciplined play

Trying to kill penalties

Nervy standing tall

 

Matt Read has chances

Whiffs on puck in tough spaces

What the hell, Matt Read?

 

Second Period

Flyers get chances

5-on-3 for two minutes

Can’t connect for goal

 

White called for holding

Negates second power play

Backstrom bout to score

 

Flyers playing tough

Big hits and bad turnovers

Neuvirth only hope

 

Flyers down one goal

Need to apply pressure soon

Holtby not balking

 

Third Period

Pressure was applied

Too little, too late for boys

Season ends one-zip

 

Hell of a run, boys

Lots to look forward to soon

Thank you for the ride

 

Extra Haiku

Thank you, Flyers fans

Writing for you has been great

Keep reading Pat Ave!
