The Flyers are red hot right now. They have won 6 straight and in their last 4 games, they have won each by at least 2 goals. They are currently 4th in the Eastern Conference, trailing the team they play Wednesday, the Capitals. Every game matters going forward for both these teams as they would both like to have the home advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The Flyers trail the Capitals by 3 points in the standings heading into this game.
Philadelphia ranks well in most of the stat categories in the NHL. In the two most important categories, goals scored and goals allowed, they rank 8th in goals scored and 11th in goals allowed. Their top points man and goal scorer, Travis Konecny, has done pretty well against the Capitals this year. In 3 games played against Washington, he has scored 2 goals. He also had a goal in his last game facing the New York Rangers on Sunday.
The Capitals have been struggling as of late although they won their last game, 4-3, against the Minnesota Wild. They have lost a lot of close games the last couple of weeks at a time in the season when teams can’t afford many losses, especially close games. It also does not help that they are about to play a Philadelphia team that has had their number this year.
But if any team knows how to recover from a slump, it’s the Capitals. They are one of the best scoring teams in league, tied for 3rd with 222 goals scored. It also helps that they have one of the best players in NHL history, Alex Ovechkin. Ovechkin is tied for 2nd in the league in goals scored this season with 45. He has NOT scored a goal against Philly this year so he seems to be due to break that stat.
