Flyers master Capitals in OT

WASHINGTON — Jakub Voracek scored 38 seconds into overtime and the Flyers beat the NHL-leading Capitals 4-3 on Wednesday night in the teams' final game before the All-Star break.

Voracek's second goal of the night snapped the Flyers' three-game losing streak and the Capitals' two-game winning streak. Brayden Schenn and Ryan White also scored for Philadelphia.

The Capitals lost at home for the first time since Nov. 19 against the Stars. Andre Burakovsky had two goals, and Nicklas Backstrom scored his 16th of the season.

Philadelphia's Michal Neuvirth stopped 27 of the 30 shots he faced to beat his former team for the first time.

Around the league: Bruins goalie Jonas Gustavsson was removed from Tuesday's game against the Ducks because he had an elevated heart rate, the team said. He was taken to a Boston hospital for tests, which were negative, and was discharged Wednesday. Gustavsson was expected to rejoin the team after the All-Star break. … Ducks defenseman Clayton Stoner pleaded guilty in an Abbotsford, British Columbia, court to hunting without a licence in connection to a 2013 grizzly bear hunt in the province.

  4. Bucs' Ali Marpet: Move to center could pay off big


    TAMPA — No player works as closely with Jameis Winston as the center. Only those two touch the ball on every play. Together they make — if you will — snap judgements about defensive alignments.
