Flyers -- the league's worst shootout team since 2005 -- earned a
2-1 victory against the league's best team.
Alexander Ovechkin's 44th goal of the season broke a scoreless tie
1:28 into the third period. With a Capitals power play coming to an
end, Ovechkin set up in his office, the top of the left circle, and
took pass from Kuznetsov before firing a hard wrist shot over the
glove of Mason.
Claude Giroux fired a slap shot from the left point that was
perfectly redirected by Brayden Schenn for the Flyers equalizer.
