Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin delivers a pass to Tom Wilson on Wednesday night against the Flyers

Through two meetings with the Flyers, Washington has scored 10 goals - both 5-3 victories that were not as close as the score may indicate. "They make us a better team and it's no different than [Evgeny] Kuznetsov and [Alex] Ovechkin being out of [the Capitals'] lineup". They are now two games ahead of the Islanders, who play the Senators tonight.

Sean Couturier took a tripping penalty to begin the second, putting the Flyers on their first penalty kill of the evening. Elliott was pulled after the fourth marker and Cam Talbot let one in 1:19 later as the Capitals ambushed the Flyers in intimidating fashion. Ovechkin faked a pass, fell to his knees and whiffed a ideal pass to Tom Wilson to bang it home. It was Wilson's 19th goal of the season. I did say to keep an eye on the top line yesterday. Travis Sanheim made it 2-0 later in the first off an assist from Claude Giroux. 2-0 would be the score heading into the first intermission with the Caps leading in shots 14-7.

Last night, the Flyers hosted the Capitals and welcomed Bryce Harper to Philly on the jumbo tron in the first period.

Ovechkin opened the second-period scoring with a power-play tally at 2:32 with a wrist shot through goalie Brian Elliott's legs. The comeback was officially on when Scott Laughton scored with twelve minutes and change to go, making it a 5-3 game. The goal came at 4:18.

The Capitals extended their lead to 5-0 at 5:37 with a great pass from Jakub Vrana behind the goal to Nicklas Backstrom for his 16th of the seaosn. The three goals came in the span of 3:05.

The Flyers answered with three unanswered goals. Travis Konecny put the Flyers on the board with 11:39 left in the first period with assists going to Radko Gudas and Robert Hagg.

Giroux then got his 20th on a backhander 10 seconds into the third, and it was 5-3 when Laughton's deflection beat Holtby at 7:48.

The Washington Capitals are playing solid hockey with four wins in a row and six in their last seven. The Capitals outshot the Flyers 35-30. Braden Holtby stopped 27 shots for a.900 save percentage to win his 250th career National Hockey League game.

Holtby reached the mark in his 409th career contest to become the second-fastest goalie to get to 250 wins.
