A preview of the Flyers vs Avs game.

After suffering its ninth consecutive road defeat, Colorado (15-17-1) bounced back with a 2-1 victory over Washington on Saturday as Erik Johnson scored his first goal of the season and assisted on Cody McLeod's first.

"It started that we that we were good on the road and not so good at home. Now we've haven't been as good on the road and better at home," Johnson said. "It's just the nature of the beast, the nature of the game sometimes. When we play a full 60-minute game, it makes a difference. We've been doing that lately."

A recap of the Caps at Avs game.

This was a legitimate fight — one that looked like two guys who didn’t like each other. But McLeod said the two old buddies hung out Friday night. The fight was just a product of hockey.

"He hit me once there and I kind of asked him to go off the draw, but he kind of declined. We drew that penalty and he was yelling at me," McLeod said. "When you get hit in the face a couple times, you kind of get mad and start swinging back, right? Part of the job. Try to get some energy in the building. I thought we picked up our game after it, so it was good."

Milbury is defending himself.

"I want to be clear about a couple of things," Milbury told the Boston Globe onSaturday. "No one was punched, kicked, or assaulted in any way. I know the ‘Mad Mike’ image that I have and all that. I love the game, I’m passionate about it, but I don’t smack kids around. I grabbed the other kid by the sweater to stop a fight and, yeah, I swore at him. That’s it. That’s what I did.
