The Washington Capitals took on the Philadelphia Flyers at home on Tuesday as they sought their fourth win in a row. Could they get there or could Philly play spoiler?
Alex Ovechkin kicked things off with a backhand that got behind Carter Hart. TJ Oshie finished off a beautiful passing play to make the lead two. James Van Riemsdyk almost immediately struck on a breakaway to cut that lead in half. Martin Fehervary dangled the lead right back to two before the first period was over.
Lars Eller finished off another great passing play to add to the advantage early in the second. Conor Sheary was left all alone in front of the net and he dangled the goal total to five. Matt Irwin found the endzone for six. Lars Eller, extra point was good. Garnet Hathaway scored the eighth and I’ve run out of cliche ways to describe goals going in. JVR for a random pinball goal. Johan Larsson for nine.
Capitals beat Flyers 9-2!
Oh yeah, we gotta do this.

rest in peace to Gilbert Gottfried who has probably the best sequence in game show history on Hollywood Squares. if you're not an old hag like me who remembers the rules, both contestants needed his square to secure the 5-square win, but he decided to troll both of them pic.twitter.com/Egzyzygudd

The Caps head north of the border next as they’ll make a visit to Toronto to play a Leafs team led by Auston Matthews who apparently scores two goals in every single game he plays these days.
