Capitals beat Flyers in overtime, Penguins win East Division

Unable to dress the usual 18 skaters because of injuries and other absences, the Washington Capitals rallied for one accomplishment with the playoffs on the horizon but fell short of another. Lars Eller tied it with 39.8 seconds left in regulation, Conor Sheary scored the overtime winner and the short-handed Capitals beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 Saturday night to guarantee they’ll open the playoffs at home. Failing to win in regulation gave the East Division title to the rival Pittsburgh Penguins.
