Flyers winger Scott Hartnell was working hard in his own end trying to clear the zone but got careless. It's not textbook hockey flinging the puck to the middle of the ice, an area where turnovers tend to turn into scoring opportunities. When Hartnell went there late in the first period Thursday night, his attempted clear became a perfect wrong-team pass right onto the stick of Washington Capitals center Mathieu Perreault, who was waiting for his gift just inside the blue line. Bad decision, bad pass, bad omen.
Hartnell's error triggers bad loss for Flyers
