Philadelphia Flyers vs Washington Capitals prediction

The Philadelphia Flyers have been road warriors this season with a 16-9-5 record, and they've been the better team this season overall. However, the Flyers aren't in great form, with losses in 4 of their last 5 games. The Washington Capitals have turned things around over the last two weeks, which includes wins in 4 of their last 6 games and taking the Panthers to overtime. The Caps have life in terms of the playoff race, and these are games they need to take advantage of at home. The price is more than reasonable. Give me the Capitals on their home ice as they continue to build on a recent turnaround that may or may not be too little too late.
