The Washington Capitals are facing off against the Philadelphia Flyers in D.C. on Sunday, March 24 at 12:30 p.m. The Capitals are recovering from a 1-2 loss against the Minnesota Wild, and the Philadelphia Flyers are playing the Islanders at 1 p.m. on Saturday, but beat the Blackhawks 3-1 on Thursday.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch the Flyers play the Capitals on Sunday afternoon.
The Flyers will be bringing a similar, necessary effort to the ice, so the Capitals will — once again — need to be on their A-game to cop a W.
If the Caps lose on Sunday, the Metropolitan Division standings may see a change. The Islanders have an extra game remaining, and the Caps will see the New Yorkers on the ice on April 6, the final game of the regular season.
These last games of March are crucial for the Caps and Islanders alike when looking forward toward the postseason.
Keep an eye out for chances for the Caps to bring the puck into the zone, as that was a weakness on Friday. Following Friday’s loss, NBC Sports Washington’s J.J. Reagan wrote, “Even when they did get it in, it usually was taken right back after one bad pass and sent in the other direction.”
