The Flyers had a chance to show something Thursday night ... yes, even in October.

Instead, they showed that they are substantially behind the Washington Capitals in program development, a veteran presence ... and on the scoreboard.

They lost 5-2, and though they complained about deflected shots and huffed about penalties, they were manhandled, even as they were outshooting Washington, 42-28.

They may be better later. They probably will be better later. But they were steamrolled in an Eastern Conference showdown Thursday.

And P.S.: It's OK if Jaromir Jagr scores career goal 647.
