Time makes fools of us all, including the schedule maker and the arena timer. Today's supposed 12:30PM start time was actually Noon (who knew?), and the game clock failed to record the first minute or so of play. That got squared away, and there was hockey to play.
The Flyers spent most of the period dominating the shot count before finally breaking the ice with a minute and a half left in the period when Michael Del Zotto fired one home.
It's 1-0 Philadelphia headed into the second period.
Also, as a reminder for your trash-talking needs, here is your #CapsFlyers Liable To Libel:
