The motivation is there for both teams and it sets up to be a real cracker but it will be the road-underdog that gets the win on the back of the experience from their top guys that have been there before.

It is win or the bin and Washington have looked the goods over the past week, finding what may prove to be the crucial win against Detroit which snapped their six-game losing streak and has now put them on a 3-1 run that has them in with the best chance to clinch the wild card into the playoffs.

Charlie Lindgren has stood tall in the Capitals three latest wins, recording the most important shutout of his career in the Caps 2-0 win over the Bruins. The Minnesota-native faced 96 shots in those three vital victories and has had a save percentage of .972, which has given his team every chance and they have taken it.

Lindgren will have another big match and the Capital will get the win on the road and start their journey into the 2024 NHL Playoffs.

  • The Capitals have won 3 of their past 4 matches.
  • Philadelphia has lost 3 of their past 4 home games.
  • Charlie Lindgren has allowed just 3 goals in the past 3 wins for Washington.

Washington Capitals Form


The Capitals fate is in their own hands heading into their final game day of the season with 2 points guaranteeing their entry into the 2024 NHL Playoffs and winning the highly-entertaining race that has been the final wild card spot in the East. 

The Caps kept the dream alive just yesterday when they shut out the Boston Bruins 2-0 on the back of a John Carlson goal 12 minutes into the first period. The game stayed that way until the final 13 seconds when Nic Dowd buried the empty-netter.

The win against Boston and the Capitals 4-2 victory over the Lightning on Sunday puts them in the driver’s seat needing a win in regulation or after to book their spot in the playoffs.

Washington Capitals Team News

Beck Malenstyn left the game against the Bruin in the second period and it is unclear if he will play against the Flyers.

Philadelphia Flyers Form


Philadelphia’s chances to make the playoffs are down to 18 percent according to moneypuck.com, after losing eight-straight games on the run home since March 24.

The flyers have given themselves a glimmer of hope after winning their last two games 4-1 against the New York Rangers and 1-0 against New Jersey. Philly have also had 3-days rest coming into this game against Washington and will have to leave everything out on the ice if they are going to give themselves any hope of sliding into the postseason.

If the flyers win in regulation they also need Detroit to lose in regulation in their game being played against Montreal at the same time. If those two results come to pass, they will then need Pittsburgh to also lose in regulation the following day. 

Philadelphia Flyers Team News


No recent injury news for the Flyers.
