Caps take down Flyers

The Capitals are alone at the top of the Eastern Conference, thanks to a 3-2 overtime win last night over the Philadelphia Flyers.  Mike Green slapped in the game-winning goal behind Philly netminder Sergei Bobrovsky just 29 seconds seconds into overtime.  The win completed an impressive three game home stand that included wins over the #2 (Philadelphia) and #5 (Boston) teams in the conference.

I said earlier that this week’s home games were an opportunity for Washington to finally show consistency.  Even though they didn’t necessarily do that (blowing a 3-0 lead against Boston comes to mind), the fact remains: they are winning.  With a record of 10-4, how much criticizing could we possibly do?

Maybe all of these close games are a good thing for the Capitals.  They’ve played a lot of close games and have had to fight back from adversity.  As much as Caps fans would love to see their team blow opponents out on a nightly basis, I think playing some closer games will help Washington out when it comes to the post-season.  The team is winning right now and in a variety of different ways.  Hopefully, they learn from this stretch of games.
