How to Watch Washington Capitals Vs. Phildelphia Flyers

How to watch Capitals vs. Flyers originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

After taking points from each of their first nine games, the Capitals have suffered two consecutive losses in regulation, slipping to third in the East Division behind the Bruins and their next opponent, the Philadelphia Flyers.

In their 4-2 loss to the Rangers, the Capitals started slow, conceding the first goal less than two minutes into the game and showing a lack of urgency to get back into it. Despite ranking second in the league on the power play, the Caps failed to convert all four of their opportunities.

They look to correct course on Sunday, when they host the Philadelphia Flyers in the first of two meetings at Capital One Arena.

  • Thursday’s defeat was the third game back for Alex Ovechkin and just the second for Dmitry Orlov since returning from COVID-19 protocols. With those games and some practice time under their belt, the Capitals would like to see them pick up where they left off at the beginning of the season. The Capitals are still without their No. 1 center Evgeny Kuznetsov, who remains unavailable nearly two weeks since being placed under protocol.
  • The Flyers have battled through their fair share of setbacks, as well. They started the season without their star two-way center Sean Couturier, as he continues to recover from a rib injury. It appears the 2019-20 Frank J. Selke Trophy winner won’t be ready to skate against the Capitals. But they could get reinforcements on the defensive front with Phillipe Myers likely to return to the lineup.
  • With the Flyers coming away winless in their double-header with the Bruins, the Capitals are hot on their heels with a chance to reclaim their spot at the top of the division standings. In a shortened season, winning against divisional frontrunners is a must for Laviolette and the Caps.


Capitals: Alex Ovechkin, LW (7 games, 3 goals, 5 assists, 8 points): Last time out, Alex Ovechkin found the net for the 708th time in his career, officially claiming 7th place on the NHL’s all-time leading scorers list. He’ll look to close in on Phil Esposito (717) and lead his team out of this slump.

James van Reimsdyk, LW (12 games, 6 goals, 10 assists, 15 points): Van Reimsdyk was named the East Division’s player of the month for January, and deservedly so. Through the first 10 games, he netted five goals and a team-high 13 points. In his 12th NHL season, he’s exuding confidence and picking up some of the slack for a leaky Flyers defense.
