Michael Raffl potted his 9th goal of the season to give the Flyers a 1-0 lead against the Capitals on Sunday. He finished +1 with 3 hits.
Brian Elliott stopped 27 Capitals shots to improve to 18-11-7 on the season.
I need to see more dynamic play for sure, but I am patient.
Carter Hart took time off from the WHL's Everett Silvertips to help guide Team Canada thru the World Juniors tournament
Carter Hart made 35 stops and held Canada in the Gold Medal game until the skaters got their legs as Canada prevailed 3-1. He only allowed a short-handed Sweden goal. Hart avenged losing in this game last year to Team USA in a shoot-out.
Brian Elliot stopped 27 shots including 3 of 4 from Ovechkin to forge the Flyers win and Michael Raffl and Travis Konecny provided enough scoring for the win.
The win pushed the Flyers into the playoff picture 1 point ahead of both the Rangers (who play later) and the Penguins (who lost last night). The Flyers have a game in hand on the Rangers and 2 on the Penguins. But, there is still 35 games to play.
