Sabres' scoreboard watch: Capitals at Flyers

With only 17 days left in the NHL season, nearly every one will have a game that impacts the Sabres and the Eastern Conference playoff race. Here's a look at today's main event:

Washington Capitals at Philadelphia Flyers, 7 p.m.

The Sabres and eighth-place Capitals have the same number of points. Washington has played one fewer game, but the teams will be equal after tonight.

The Flyers have won the last two meetings after Washington won the series opener in Philadelphia. Alex Ovechkin has five goals in the last four games, and he's tormented the Flyers throughout his career with 22 goals in 25 games.
