The Flyers look baffled and defeated after Game 3.
However, they bounced back in a big way to send the series back to Washington here for Game 5 after a 2-1 Game 4 win behind a stellar goaltending performance.
The Flyers sat in absolute stunned silence after getting absolutely whacked on their home ice 6-1 in Game 3.
It looked like a defeated bunch that was ready to throw the towel in. However, they came out extremely spirited in Game 4 and stood tall defensively, holding on to a 2-1 win. The Flyers made a goalie change, putting Mason on the bench for Michal Neuvirth. In his first start this series, Neuvirth turned aside 31 shots.
The Flyers put an end to their power play drought too. Philadelphia got a PP goal to put an end to their 0 for 13 this series.
The Flyers have been about as sketchy of a road team as you can get. They sit just 18-19-24 and concede 2.8 goals per road contest. They’ve struggled offensively in the 2 games in Washington this series controlling the puck in the Caps zone.
The Capitals have to be a bit frustrated to have this series having a Game 5.
Washington absolutely dominated the first 3 games of this series, but struggled to find production in Game 4 as they came out flat. The Caps now will look to avoid having to get on another plane for 2 more games if they can grab a win here on Friday.
Washington has relied heavily on Braden Holtby, who has been a beast this series. Holtby has allowed just 4 goals on 118 shots faced. He’s turned in a SV% of .966 and has not given up anything easy.
TJ Oshie extended his playoff point streak to 3 as he has tallied a goal and 3 assists in the process.
