A late power play presented an opportunity for the Flyers in a stalemate of a game. The third period saw the Flyers and Washington Capitals trade goals.
The Flyers had to survive a penalty kill with seven minutes left in regulation before the opportunity was presented to them. When a second chance came up in overtime, the Flyers made sure not to waste it.
Jake Voracek scored the game-winning goal at 1:28 of overtime on a 4-on-3 power play to give the Flyers a 3-2 win over the Capitals, but it was the overall play of the Flyers before the overtime power play that really keyed the win.
