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

You've got to focus on playing good hockey. When we do that we give ourselves a chance to win games. Win games and then maybe we''ll have a chance at the end. You can't worry about something like (the division title) when we're not playing our best hockey down the stretch. We'll figure things out together the way we always do and get back on the right page.
