The Flyers appeared to have a win in their grasp with a go-ahead goal scored with 3:51 remaining on Thursday night against Washington. Then the Capitals struck three times in 2:08, including an empty-net goal to ice the end result, handing the Flyers their fourth straight loss.
It hasn't been an easy schedule for the Flyers, having to go up against three of the top four teams in the Metropolitan Division in consecutive games. They will do so for the third and final time against the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday afternoon.
Game time is 3 p.m.
Carter Hart gets back in goal for the Flyers. Hart made 29 saves on 34 shots in an overtime loss to the Penguins last Tuesday, extending his current streak to three games.
Frederik Andersen gets the start on Monday. Andersen made 28 saves in his last game against Nashville on Friday, picking up the win. Andersen allowed two goals on 28 shots in a loss to the Flyers on Nov. 12.
Flyers Scratches: Sean Couturier (injury), Ryan Ellis (injury), Nate Thompson (injury), Kevin Hayes (injury), Joel Farabee (injury), Wade Allison (injury), Derick Brassard (injury), Kevin Connauton (healthy)
