HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED
A late surge from the Flyers wasn't enough as the Caps scored three times in the second period en route to a 5-3 win in Washington, DC on Tuesday night.
Tom Wilson and Jake Voracek traded first-period goals, but the Caps took over in the second frame, posting three unanswered goals from TJ Oshie and a pair from Jakub Vrana to head into the locker room with a 4-1 lead after 40 minutes.
The Flyers scored twice in the final three and a half minutes of regulation to draw within one, but the latter came with just 6.7 seconds left on the clock and TJ Oshie sealed it with an empty-netter for Washington.
Pheonix Copley turned aside 37 of 40 shots, while Mike McKenna made his first appearance in net as a Flyer and stopped 20 of 24 to take the loss.
Stars of the Game:
1 - Jakub Vrana (2g-1a)
2 - TJ Oshie (2g, +3)
3 - John Carlson (2a)
