Game Preview

The Washington Capitals can inch closer to a playoff spot when they host the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday.

The Capitals enter the matchup six points behind the Flyers, who are third in the Metropolitan Division, with two games in hand. As of Thursday, only one team (New Jersey Devils) stood between Washington and Philadelphia in the division standings. That could become three, with the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Islanders, both a point behind the Capitals, each in action Thursday.

“We’re right there and I think we’ve done a decent job the last 10 games of battling back and putting ourselves at least within striking distance,” Capitals forward Dylan Strome said. “… We’ve got to take care of business tomorrow and then we’ve got a couple of games before the (NHL trade) deadline. If we go 3-0 in these next three games, it’s going to make the decisions a little tougher. That’s ultimately what we want as a team.”
