Meszaros’ OT goal lifts Flyers past Caps, 3-2
“My confidence is back and I feel great,” Bobrovsky said.
Bobrovsky was cruising toward his first career shutout. He made two sweet stops on Jason Chimera — a glove save of a 2-on-1 play in the third a highlight.
All it took was 40 seconds for the lead to collapse.
The play was reviewed to see if Ovechkin knocked the puck in with his glove, but the goal stood.
“We played the third period the way we have to play all 60 minutes. Everyone in here understands that,” Ovechkin said. “If we work hard, and we use our skills, no one can stop us. In the first two periods, we didn’t do that.”
The Flyers wasted the lead — just not the game.
Meszaros scored only his second goal of the season to stun the Caps and keep the Flyers rolling.
Caps coach Bruce Boudreau lamented the slow start.
“You’d like to think it’s going to start a little earlier, but what are you going to do?” he said. “It’s frustrating for the players, it’s frustrating for the coaches, it’s frustrating for everybody.”
Not the Flyers, who rewarded Holmgren — the architect of a team that fell two wins shy of winning the Stanley Cup last season.
Carter wasted little time giving the fans something to cheer for when he scored his 20th goal on a wraparound past Michal Neuvirth only 1:31 into the game.
Neuvirth left at the end of the first period with a lower body injury.
