This was the final game of the Young Stars Tournament. The Canucks finished with a 2-2 record while the Jets went 2-1.

Stanislav Galiev registered an assist in the Washington Capitals 3-2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday evening at Wells Fargo Center.

“Less than a minute after the kill was complete, Caps winger Stan Galiev gained the Philly line with speed and linemate Garrett Ross,” describes Mike Vogel on Dump ‘n Chase. “Galiev roared down the right side, drawing defensive attention and creating slot space for Ross. Galiev fed Ross, who rifled a wrister that clanged off the right post before settling behind Phillips. Cody Eakin collected the second assist on the goal that gave the Caps a 1-0 advantage.”

According to Tim Leone, Galiev played on a line with Garrett Ross and Cody Eakin.

Here are Galiev and other Capitals prospect speaking with the media after the game:
