Claude Giroux gave Philadelphia the lead once again with a power play goal one minute into the middle frame. Jason Chimera, however, converted for the Capitals on their first power play of the night and Justin Williams slapped a puck home from the crease 45 seconds later. Chimera would add his second power play goal of the game from Matt Niskanen before the twenty minutes were up.
Washington leads Philadelphia 5 to 2 after two periods of play.
Third period ahead.
