Tale of the Tape: Flyers host Capitals
Tale of the Tape: Buffalo Sabres host Boston Bruins on Wednesday Night Rivalry.

The Philadelphia Flyers would like nothing more than to complete a home-and-home sweep when they host the Washington Capitals in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry matchup (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN2). The Flyers rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period to win 5-4 at Verizon Center on Sunday, enough to keep them ahead of a pack of five Metropolitan Division teams that are separated by three points.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
