The Philadelphia Flyers and the Washington Capitals will meet on the ice at Verizon Center on Sunday in a battle of division rivals.

ABOUT THE FLYERS (22-17-6): Defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere was a healthy scratch Saturday after posting a minus-7 rating over his previous five games and veteran blue liner Mark Streit (shoulder) returned for the first time since Dec. 11. Wayne Simmonds snapped a seven-game goal drought with his team-leading 18th on Saturday while Jakub Voracek has assists in two straight and tops the Flyers in points (41). Michal Neuvirth allowed five goals on 38 shots against Boston and that could mean Steve Mason will be back in net Sunday, but the 28-year-old owns a .874 save percentage in five January games.

ABOUT THE CAPITALS (28-9-5): While Nicklas Backstrom is red hot with a five-game point streak (three goals, seven assists) and Alex Ovechkin has five goals during the streak, the key has been an improved team effort. The Capitals got four goals from the bottom two lines – two from Jay Beagle and one each from Brett Connolly and Thomas Wilson – in Saturday’s 6-0 victory over Chicago. “I use the term ‘everybody pulling on the same rope,’” coach Barry Trotz told reporters. “All four lines are pulling on the rope. You saw production right through the whole lineup there. I think that’s what our strength is.”

currently has the Capitals listed as 230-moneyline favorites versus the Flyers, while the game’s total is sitting at 5.

The Washington Capitals had been quietly chugging along in the background through the first half of the season and suddenly are on the brink of owning the best record in the NHL. The Capitals look to extend their season-high winning streak to nine games when they host the scuffling Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday afternoon in a Metropolitan Division battle.

Washington routed the past two Stanley Cup champions – Pittsburgh and Chicago – in its last two outings and outscored opponents 21-3 in its last five games to move within one point of league-leading Columbus. “We’ve come to the rink every single time expecting a tight game,” Capitals defenseman Karl Alzner told reporters. “That’s usually the way that this league works. But we’ve been able to really pick up our game and play with joy and play with intensity.” The Flyers will have a difficult time cooling off Washington after dropping 6-3 decision at Boston on Saturday afternoon – falling to 3-7-3 since their inspiring 10-game winning streak. Brayden Schenn has been hot for Philadelphia, though, notching a goal in four consecutive contests.

In their last action, Washington was a 6-0 winner at home against the Blackhawks. Bettors on Washington at -157 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (6) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

Philadelphia was a 6-3 loser in its last match on the road against the Bruins. They lost as +162 underdogs, while the total score of 9 made winners of OVER bettors.
