Capitals face Flyers, fight for division title

Washington still has a chance to finish first in the East Division, but it will need to do a better job Saturday night against the visiting Philadelphia Flyers, a team that won't be going to the playoffs but which beat the Capitals on Friday.

The Capitals (34-15-5, 73 points) sit two points behind the Pittsburgh Penguins (36-16-3, 75 points) after the Flyers scored a 4-2 victory over the Capitals on Friday.

Washington has two games remaining -- the Saturday matchup with Philadelphia and a Tuesday game at home vs. Boston. Regulation wins in both games will give the Caps the division title and home ice through the first two rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
