Washington was busy on trade deadline day as it prepares to make another run at a Stanley Cup. The team acquired forward Anthony Mantha from Detroit in exchange for forwards Jakub Vrana and Richard Panik, a 2021 1st-round pick and a 2022 2nd-round pick. Mantha, who led the Red Wings with 11 goals prior to Monday’s deal, has three years remaining on his current contract with a salary cap hit of $5.7M. Mantha has 194 points (95G-99A) in six NHL seasons
On Sunday, the Washington offense lit up the lamp repeatedly behind Boston goalie Dan Vladar in an 8-1 blowout at TD Garden. It marked the first time the Caps scored at least eight goals in a game since Jan. 9, 2010 (8-1 at Atlanta). T.J. Oshie (2G-1A), Conor Sheary (2G) and Lars Eller (2G) each scored a pair of goals. In addition, Tom Wilson had two points (1G-1A), while Nic Dowd added a goal.
As the regular season begins to wind down, the Flyers look to stay in the hunt for the East Division’s fourth and final playoff spot. Entering Tuesday’s outing against first-place Washington, the Flyers (as well as the Rangers) are four points behind Boston. This will be the fifth of eight meetings between these clubs. Washington has won the last three
