Capitals without Dmitry Orlov face lowly Flyers

The Washington Capitals have won three straight against teams that will be in the Eastern Conference playoff bracket in a few weeks. Now they will look to extend that streak against a less fortunate Philadelphia Flyers team.

The Caps will be without one of their best defensemen, Dmitry Orlov, because he has a lower body injury.

Every point is huge for the Capitals right now as they look to escape Wild Card second place and a near-certain matchup with the mighty Florida Panthers. They are still four points behind the Pittsburgh Penguins for third in the Metropolitan Division with two games in hand.

Tonight’s game is on ESPN+ so yet another game without Joe and Craig. Check out the clearance sale, which includes a Stanley Cup champions jersey for around $2.

No Dima through injury and no McMichael as he is healthy scratched.



Samsonov versus Hart

NHL debut for Bobby Brink

The Flyers’ second-round selection of 2019 will get their first taste of NHL action.

Martin Jones replaces Carter Hart in goal with a lower body injury. Cam Atkinson also left the game.

Matt Irwin finds the back of the net. Landing, Washington.

Happy for the guy. It’s his first goal in three seasons.

Oh no another

Honestly, the most remarkable thing about that goal is how terrible it was from a Justin Schultz shot. It was like six feet wide!!!

The Flyers score after the puck deflects off van Riemsdyk and van Riemsdyk. 8-2.
