Notes:

  • The season series between the two squads is tied at one a piece
  • The Caps are an Eastern Conference leading 7-2-1 in the month of February, only 2nd behind the Canucks for the league-lead
  • The Flyers’ Mike Richards has 8 points in his last 2 games, and is 1st in the NHL with 9 shorthanded goals
  • Look for special teams to make the difference in this game, with the Caps needing a little more luck on the penalty kill
  • Alex Ovechkin has 6 goals in his last 5 games. He also has 21 points in 14 games in his career vs Philly, but he is -2 with zero points against them this season
  • Check out his game winning goal from last year’s playoffs…
