WASHINGTON (AP) - Eric Wellwood scored less than a minute after Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette called a timeout to give his players an earful, and Ilya Bryzgalov made 34 saves, leading the Flyers to a 1-0 victory over the Washington Capitals on Sunday night.
Bryzgalov earned his third shutout of the season, and the 26th of his career, even though the Flyers were missing two defensemen who sat out with injuries: Kimmo Timonen and Andrej Meszaros.
Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, a two-time league MVP, played fewer minutes than most of Washington's other forwards and was held without a goal for the seventh time in his last 10 games.
Washington has lost two games in a row - both at home, both shutouts - following a three-game winning streak.
