The Washington Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers did battle for the second time this season. The Metropolitan Division matchup has been testy in the past and the Caps really needed another two points before their upcoming week off.
Michal Kempny fired the Caps into the lead with a slapper through traffic that beat Martin Jones. Gerry Mayhew tied the game up on a Flyers power play. Joe Snively stayed hot with a power-play goal of his own. Travis Sanheim responded late in the second with an odd-man rush tally.
Mayhew with the tally to give the Flyers their first lead of the game. Garnet Hathaway with two straight huge goals to give the Caps their lead back. John Carlson empty netter.
Capitals beat Flyers 5-3!

The Caps have a full week off before they’ll take on the New York Rangers at MSG. I’m sure that one won’t be spicy at all.
