NHL Playoffs: Flyers vs. Capitals Game 2 live stream: Watch online


Philadelphia Flyers at Washington Capitals

The Philadelphia Flyers will return to the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. to take on the Washington Capitals for game two of their first round series in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Philadelphia will be looking to take the series home with the series at one while Washington will be looking to take a two game lead in the series. The Flyers will be without center Sean Couturier as he has a sprained shoulder and will miss the next two weeks.

There will likely be no lineup changes for either team other than Couturier being replaced. Braden Holtby is set to start in goal for Washington while Steve Mason, who did a marvelous job in Game One, will be starting in goal for Game Two. Philadelphia must stay out of the penalty box as that cost them in Game One.

Keys for the game for the Capitals will be to keep their energy up and keep on pressuring the Flyers. They allowed just eight shots on goal after the first period. If Washington can repeat that performance, they should go up 2-0 in the series. Philadelphia will need to capitalize on their power plays and be more aggressive on offense if they want to beat the President’s Trophy winners.
