The Flyers look like they’re going to ultimately fall short in their bid for the postseason as they are 7 points out of the 2nd wild card spot with just 7 games to play. Philly still looks to play hard to the end though as they travel to Washington on Sunday. The Capitals try to hold on to 1st in the Metropolitan in this one.
The Flyers have sealed their fate with loses to Islanders and the Canadiens in two of the last three games with a win over Chicago mixed in there. Philadelphia has lost 4 of the last 5 to Washington and will face a hungry Capitals team that has just a 1 point lead over those Islanders in the division race.
One bright spot for Philadelphia even as they likely miss the playoffs has been the play of rookie goaltender Carter Hart who gets the start Sunday. Hart did allow 4 goals to the Islanders in his last start however after he had surrendered 4 total in the 3 starts prior.
The Capitals may be a bit vulnerable coming into Sunday’s matchup after dropping two straight, both at home. The defeat by Tampa Bay was understandable, but Washington also fell 1-2 to Minnesota on Friday as -180 favorites.
Braden Holtby aims to get the Capitals back on track as they try to stave off the Islanders for the division crown. Holtby is just 1-3-1 over his last 5 however.

There’s not a whole lot of value in Washington at -200, especially as they’ve dropped two games in a row. The Flyers have a nice payout at +160, but how motivated is Philadelphia as their season seems to be coming up short of a postseason berth. Both teams are still motivated, which should lead to a conservative game plan.
