The Flyers looked stronger in the second. Adam "Andy" Hall scored his 4th of the year on short handed attempt. Ovechkin left the puck in the defensive zone thinking a trailer would get to it before anyone on the Flyers. Couturier beat the Caps to it though and passed it to Hall for a slap shot from the point. The Flyers would still trail at the end of the second though, thanks to Washington goals from Jay Beagle and Dmitri Orlov again.
For as much good as Orlov did for the Capitals in this game, his hit on Brayden Schenn in the third that resulted in a 5 minute major may have cost the Capitals this game. Orlov left his feet to send Schenn into the boards. I'm expecting a suspension for Orlov to ensue.
Jakub Voracek scored on the power play and brought the Flyers within 1. Giroux finished the task with 1:05 left, scoring a man-up goal with Steve Mason pulled.
Lecavalier must have heard some of the rumblings lately about possibly being traded, because he's performing much better since the Olympic break. He scored the final goal with 2:15 left in overtime to give the Flyers their 6th win in 7 games. Philadelphia now pulls into the number 2 spot in the Metropolitan with 70 points. I'll be rooting for the Bruins tonight against the Rangers to help keep it that way.
Washington won't need to wait very long for a rematch. They are back in Philly Wednesday night for their final game against the Flyers this season. Philadelphia leads the season series 2-1-1.
