PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Two of the NHL’s best in the early going with meet up tonight at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia, as the Flyers host the Washington Capitals.

The Flyers are 4-0-1, with their only blemish being an overtime loss to Los Angeles (see related story).  The Capitals are a perfect 5-0 — but four of those five wins have come at home.

An interesting storyline tonight is the Flyers debut of forward Brayden Schenn, who was called up from the AHL’s Phantoms on Wednesday (see related story) after tallying eight points in four games.  Schenn, 20, was acquired from Los Angeles in the Mike Richards trade.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with PhillySportsDaily.com‘s Dave Isaac to break down the matchup and get his thoughts on the Flyers’ fast start.
