While the Capitals' 5-1 loss to the Flyers was not a particularly memorable evening for anyone in the home sweater, it was an especially forgettable night for starting goaltender Tomas Vokoun.

Vokoun allowed four goals on 21 shots through the first 40 minutes of play – two tallies he would like to have back and two redirections that he could do little to stop – and he did not finish the contest. Tuesday's game marked the third time this season Vokoun has been pulled from the net.

"It was terrible performance," Vokoun said afterward. "Certainly not pleasant and it's unfortunate in a game like that there's not really much to say. It was a bad performance by me."
