The Washington Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers did battle on Wednesday night in Philly as the two teams kicked off a two-game, home and home set. Games between the Flyers and Caps always have the chance to get spicy, but would this one?
Scott Laughton opened the scoring with a lofted strike through traffic on a power play. Garnet Hathaway scored in the McNugget minute to tie things up but the Caps left Travis Konecny uncovered in front of their net and he gave the Flyers their lead back less than 30 seconds later.
We got nothing in the second. Owen Tippett rocketed home a wrister in the third to extend the home team’s lead. Konecny got another shorthanded. Marcus Johansson and TJ Oshie went back-to-back to get the Caps right back into it. Konecny empty netter for a hat trick.
Flyers beat Capitals 5-3.
