The win puts the Flyers two points ahead of the Detroit Red Wings the Eastern wild card playoff spot.aashootoutflyers

 

Philadelphia trailed 1-0 late in the third period when Brayden Schenn tied the game 1-1 with a power-play goal at 14:32 of the third period. Schenn redirected Claude Giroux’s slap shot on the left side of the Capitals end. His 25th goal of the season couldn’t come any bigger as the goal forced OT.

 

Just 32 seconds into overtime the Flyers found themselves in the hole with an early power-play to the Caps when Wayne Simmonds was called for tripping. The Flyers fought off the Caps many attempts on net and took the game to a shoot out.

 

In the shootout Flyers’ goalie Steve Mason stopped T.J. Oshie on the first shot by the Caps. Then Nick Cousins beat Caps’ goalie Braden Holtby between his pads. Mason came up with massive glove save on Evgeny Kuznetsov in the second round. To end it Sam Gagner beat Holtby with strong wrist shot.Alexander Ovechkin
