Capitals face Flyers on the second half of a home and home
The Washington Capitals are facing the Philidelphia Flyers on the second game of a home and home series with them. The Capitals lost the previous game with them on Wednesday and are looking to bounce back at home.
Head Coach Peter Laviolette is shuffling the lines around and trying to find a winning combination which has been a hard task ever since Tom Wilson and Nicklas Backstrom came back. Laviolette is bringing Anthony Mantha back to the third line after making him a healthy scratch the past two games. It appears as if Dylan Strome is going to be a healthy scratch tonight, which is a mind boggling decision. It also appears as if Darcy Kuemper is going to get the start again this game. in 27 starts, he boasts a 12-10-4 record. He also has a .919 save percentage and four shutouts on the season.
The Flyers are second to last in the Metro division. They are just above the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Flyers are starting to turn things around and in the last ten games, are seven and three.
