The Philadelphia Flyers are having a real nice season in 2021 and look to be primed for a Stanley Cup run, but the Washington Capitals will look to stop them in their tracks, as they welcome them into Capital One Arena this Tuesday evening.
This Philadelphia Flyers team should come into this game with plenty of confidence, as they beat this same Capitals team last time out by a score of 7-4. Alexander Ovechkin did all he could for his Capitlas team in that game scoring 2 goals and having 2 assists, but he ended up being out-shined by Scott Laughton of the Flyers who put up a Hat-trick.
Another positive for the Flyers was the return of Sean Couturier from a rib injury, as he also had a solid evening last time out scoring 2 goals to go along with one helper. Carter Hart is the current projected starter this Tuesday and although he has not been at his best, his team just keeps putting up the goals, so it is not exactly a problem that their goalie has a save percentage under .900%.
The only real production came from Backstrom, Wilson and Ovie in that previous game against the Flyers and although that is not great, it is probably more often going to be the case that the vast majority of the offense is going to be produced by Washington’s first line.
There are reasons to be worried in Washington as well, as that last loss made it three straight losses, so the Capitals hot start to the season is well and truly over. Vitek Vanecek has been great for this team, but the chances that these Capitals defenders are giving up is not doing him any favors and he once again looks like he will be busy this Tuesday night.

This last game ended up with 11 goals and I do not see a real great reason to think this game will be any different, as their could have been even more goals in that last game based on the chances created by both sides.
