Flyers host Capitals looking to move to cusp of history again
Six days ago, none of this was thought possible. The Flyers had just been hammered by the Capitals in Game 3 to fall behind 3-0 in the series. The idea of hosting two more playoff games was a pipe dream.
But here we are in an anything-can-happen Game 6. The Flyers brought the series home behind Michal Neuvirth's 44-save shutout in Game 5 on Friday. On Sunday afternoon, they have a chance to be back on the cusp of history.
The winner of this series will face the Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Capitals enter another game, their third straight, with a chance to punch their ticket to the second round.
Faceoff in Game 6 between the Flyers and Capitals is set for 12 p.m.
