Confident, revamped Capitals host faltering Flyers

The Washington Capitals played one of their most complete games of the season Sunday in an 8-1 rout of the Bruins in Boston. They hope to continue that level of play when hosting the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday.

Coach Peter Laviolette and his team have fretted all season about Washington's struggles to play a solid 60-minute game -- and be effective at both ends of the ice. But everything worked against Boston as T.J. Oshie, Lars Eller and Conor Sheary each scored two goals.

Oshie added an assist to lead the team with three points, giving him 600 for his NHL career.
