The Washington Capitals traveled a short trek up I-95 and met with the Philadelphia Flyers to close out a back-to-back for both teams. The Flyers came into the fray losers of four straight and the Caps the opposite as winners of three straight.
Travis Konecny opened the scoring off a terrible Nick Jensen turnover. Nicklas Backstrom responded minutes later to restore a tie. Jakub Vrana sniped one home to give the Caps a shortlived lead before Robert Hägg hammered one home to tie the game once again. Kevin Hayes shorthanded gave the Flyers a lead late in the second.
Flyers beat Caps 3-2.

The Caps have a couple days off before returning to home ice action against another Metro Division team in the New Jersey Devils.
