Flyers edge Capitals in OT, 'over' hits

WASHINGTON (AP) - Vincent Lecavalier scored at 2:45 of overtime and the Philadelphia Flyers rallied from a two-goal deficit for a 5-4 victory over the Washington Capitals on Sunday.

Trailing 4-2 entering the third period, the Flyers started their comeback when Jakub Voracek scored a power-play goal at 11:58. The Flyers were given a five-minute advantage when Dmitry Orlov was given a major penalty for boarding Brayden Schenn at 9:33.

Claude Giroux sent the game to overtime when he scored his second goal of the game with 65 seconds left in the third. Adam Hall also scored for the Flyers, Kimmo Timonen had three assists and Steve Mason made 25 saves.

Orlov scored two goals and fellow defenseman Mike Green had three assists for Washington. Marcus Johansson and Jay Beagle also scored for the Capitals in a physical game. Braden Holtby had 31 saves.

Washington took the lead as Troy Brouwer passed from behind the net to Orlov, whose slap shot rattled the right corner post for his second goal of the season at 6:06 of the first.

Philadelphia tied it at 11:22 of the period when Giroux scored on a slap shot on a power play. Even as some Flyers celebrated the goal, officials initially failed to count it.

But 90 seconds of playing time later, after a stoppage and a video review, Giroux was awarded his team-high 20th goal.

The Capitals regained the lead three seconds after the expiration of a power-play chance as Johansson tipped-in a red line pass from Jason Chimera for his eighth goal at 13:56.

Philadelphia tied it at 12:50 of the second period with a turnover from Washington's Alex Ovechkin, who left the puck near his own goal, expecting a trailing teammate to pick it up. But the Flyers' Sean Couturier was the first one to it and passed to Hall for a blast from the point.

Less than a minute later, Green assisted on a goal by Beagle to help the Caps retake the lead and also assisted on Orlov's second goal of the game at 16:23 of the second to give Washington a 4-2 lead going into the third period.
