Sonny Milano scored with 2:58 remaining in the third, setting up overtime where Alex Ovechkin won it with his 790th career goal in a 3-2 loss to the Capitals that sent the Flyers streak to eight games.
The Flyers are locked in a seven-game losing streak entering Wednesday's game. But it's been nearly as much of a struggle for the Capitals, who enter the game on a four-game losing streak of their own.
Just last Thursday, the Flyers had a 3-2 lead with under four minutes to play against the Washington Capitals, only to have it slip away in the final minutes of a 5-3 loss. The two teams meet again on Saturday afternoon.
Alex Ovechkin scored another pair of goals to bring his season total against the Flyers to eight and his career total to 730, as the Capitals handed the Flyers a 6-3 loss on Saturday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center.
Both Alain Vigneault and Claude Giroux said the Flyers are trending in the right direction. James van Riemsdyk agreed and said they did a lot of good things. But the results don’t lie. The Flyers are not a playoff team at the moment in the standings for a reason. And they need a quick fix or this will be yet another season of disappointment, yet another season of mediocrity.
