After winning both home games, the Caps are in Philadelphia tonight to see if they can’t put the Flyers in a stranglehold. It won’t be easy. The Flyers are mightily pissed about games one and two, and they’ve got sentimental reasons not to play like garbage tonight.
The saying goes, “you’re not in trouble until you lose at home.” Here’s rooting for trouble tonight at Wells Fargo center in what is sure to be an emotionally charged game.
Caps lead the series 2-0. Puck drops at 7 PM on CSN-DC.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Washington Capitals||56-18-8||52.0%||101.1||21.9% (5th)||85.2% (2nd)|
|Philadelphia Flyers||41-27-14||50.1%||100.5||18.9% (11th)||80.5% (20th)|
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Kuznetsov – Williams
Chimera – Richards – Johansson
Winnik – Beagle – Wilson
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Schmidt – Orlov
If you’re having a case of the Mondays.
And it seems like the Caps will spending a good deal of time there soon. Get the shirt.
