It was the visiting Caps who started the scoring with first-period goals by Eric Fehr and John Erskine. Philadelphia got on the board with 24 seconds left in the stanza on a power-play goal by Jakub Voracek.
Another power-play tally, this one from Mark Streit, tied the game and continued a streak of five straight Flyers goals. Streit finished the night with a goal and three assists.
Troy Brouwer ended the Flyers' streak of goals midway through the third period and Steve Oleksy scored with time winding down.
