An early 1-0 lead that piggybacked off of an emotional pregame ceremony for Ed Snider was not enough to rally the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night during a 6-1 loss to the visiting Washington Capitals in Game 3 of their first round Stanley Cup playoff series. Michael Raffl’s first goal of the playoffs gave Philly a one-goal lead less than one minute into the game, but it was short-lived as Marcus Johansson beat goalie Steve Mason at the 4:43 mark of the first period. Mason would go on to allow six goals on 27 shots while Caps goalie Braden Holtby stopped 31 of 32 shots faced.
The Flyers now trail the series, 3-0. The night was also marred by an ugly incident of many fans throwing complimentary wristbands on the ice during the loss, causing a late penalty for Philly. For more on this game, click here.
