WASHINGTON (AP) - Alexander Semin had two goals and an assist, Alex Ovechkin added a goal and two assists, and the Washington Capitals spoiled the abbreviated return of Philadelphia captain Peter Forsberg by handing the Flyers their sixth straight loss, 4-1 Saturday night.

The six-game skid matches the Flyers' franchise record. It's the second time this season they've dropped six in a row; each streak includes an overtime defeat.

Forsberg's return from a four-game absence provided the Flyers with a momentary lift. After finally finding a skate to accommodate his surgically repaired right ankle, the veteran centre received an assist on a goal by Mike Knuble that put Philadelphia up 1-0 at 3:31 of the first period.

But the lead vanished by the end of the period, and so did Forsberg. He missed the final 40 minutes with a concussion.
