Flyers prove their toughness on all levels in defeating Capitals
It was Fan Appreciation Night at Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday. Nothing says thank you more than the most important win of the season.
Granted, that's a tired statement anymore. They are all important to the Philadelphia Flyers.
But on this night, facing the President's Trophy winners in the Washington Capitals, facing a team they could very well meet again in the first round of the playoffs, dealing with a grinding, gritty, playoff-like atmosphere, the Flyers really did deliver the most important win of the season, a 2-1 win.
And it happened to come in the most unlikely fashion, via the shootout.
