'Desperate' Flyers face crunch-time matchup vs. Capitals

The Washington Capitals are trying to hold on to first place in the Metropolitan Division while the Philadelphia Flyers are desperately chasing the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference. That's why the Sunday matinee in Washington should feature plenty of intensity.

The Capitals hold a one-point lead over the Islanders after New York scored two late goals for a 4-2 victory over the Flyers on Saturday.

Both teams have seven games left in the regular season. The Capitals lost their last two and three of their past four but beat the Flyers 5-2 on March 14.
