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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
