The Flyers did not stand a chance against the Capitals in the previous season as they dropped all four games in regulation against their division rivals. But they have posted major progress this season, registering a 2-0-1 card against Washington so far. As if they have undergone a massive overhaul, the improvement even rubbed off in almost the entirety of their assignments against teams in the Metropolitan, tallying at least a point in 18 of 22 games. The Flyers have been going on an absolute tear for quite a while now as they scorched the opposition en route to a 15-4-1 record in their last 20 games.
Players to watch: Travis Konecny (GP 62, G 23, A 37, PTS 60), Sean Couturier (GP 65, G 21, A 37, PTS 58), Jakub Voracek (GP 65, G 12, A 40, PTS 52).
Alex Ovechkin has been kept silent by the Flyers this season – an uncharacteristic occurrence as the Washington superstar has always been known as an automatic defense shredder of Philadelphia. Ovechkin will strive to break out of his personal drought against the Flyers by banking on his accounted six points on five goals and an assist over his last games which include a three-point finish against the Wild on Sunday.
