The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired goaltender Tomas Vokoun from the Washington Capitals for a seventh-round draft pick. Vokoun spent just one season with the Capitals and is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He was signed last summer as one of several veterans pegged help the team win its first Stanley Cup. But Vokoun hurt his groin late in the season and sat out the playoffs. With the emergence of Braden Holtby in the postseason, the Capitals are set at goalie with Holtby and Michal Neuvirth.

It's been 21 years since the Washington Capitals have won this many games in a row. It's also been a while since the NHL has had a team that can score goals quite like this. The score-at-will Capitals made it look easy once again last night, scoring three times in 2 1/2 minutes early in the third period in a 5-1 victory over the visiting Anaheim Ducks. "The guys like what they're doing - and they like winning," Washington coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We talked about it in the dressing room in between periods - we're going to go after them.

Joe Pavelski had two goals and two assists against a goalie playing in the NHL for the first time in nearly a year, leading the San Jose Sharks past the host Capitals, 5-3, Monday night.

Washington's No. 1 goalie, Tomas Vokoun, was ill, and No. 2 Michal Neuvirth played Sunday in a loss at the New York Rangers.

Even though the World Cup of Hockey doesn't start until next week, the Czech Republic team has been hit hard by injuries. That means players like the Flyers' Jake Voracek and Michal Neuvirth need to have strong showings if the Czechs are going to be a factor in the eight-team field. Key forwards David Krejci of Boston and Tomas Hertl of San Jose, along with rugged Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas, will miss the tourney because of various injuries. They have been replaced by non-NHL players - two who play in Russia's KHL (forward Michal Birner and defenseman Tomas Kundratek)

In 2014, Michal Neuvirth was traded from Washington to Buffalo because the Capitals thought Braden Holtby was their goalie of the future. Two years later, the unflappable Neuvirth is punishing his former team. Since being inserted into the lineup with the Flyers trailing by three games to none, Neuvirth is 2-0 with a 0.50 goals-against average and a ridiculous .987 save percentage, carrying the Flyers back into the playoff series. "He gave us life," captain Claude Giroux said.

Not many people give the Flyers much of a chance in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs against the class of the NHL, the Washington Capitals. The Capitals have more talent, better special teams, and a veteran bench boss, Barry Trotz, who has coached 64 more Stanley Cup games than his counterpart, Dave Hakstol. All of that should trump the added emotion the oh-so-focused Flyers will bring into the series as they play the games to honor their beloved founder, Ed Snider, who died Monday at 83. Washington won the Presidents' Trophy, awarded to the league's top team, with 120 points, 24 more than the Flyers.

The Flyers' playoff chances look a lot more precarious than they did a few days ago - and not just because they were manhandled Saturday by Pittsburgh in a critical matchup. That 4-1 home loss certainly hurt, but the news Sunday that Michal Neuvirth will miss the rest of the regular season could be devastating. Neuvirth, who is having a career season, will be sidelined for three weeks with a lower body injury, thought to be to his knee. The team does not disclose injuries. Suddenly, the Flyers' difficult schedule got much more daunting and Steve Mason's workload just got a lot heavier.

NASHVILLE - Besides having connections to the Philadelphia area and being named to their respective all-star teams this season, the Flyers' Claude Giroux and Calgary's Johnny Gaudreau have something else in common: The shifty forwards have proven the skeptics wrong. During their early teenage years, both were told they were too small to ever make it to the NHL. Heck, Gaudreau was still hearing those whispers even after the Flames took him in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. He was selected with the 104th pick - 36 slots after the Flyers chose Nick Cousins.

Steve Mason understands the situation but obviously doesn't like it. The Flyers No. 1 goalie has been No. 2 the last three games, and he's aching to earn his spot back. Coach Dave Hakstol pulled Mason early in the second period during a 4-3 shootout loss to the visiting New York Islanders on Dec. 8. Mason allowed three goals and left with the Flyers trailing, 3-1. He hasn't been in the lineup since, replaced by Michal Neuvirth. "It is not a fun situation, backing up all the time, but you realize your partner is playing well, and that is the role I am in," Mason said after Wednesday's practice.

DALLAS - For the first time this season, the same Flyers goalie started on consecutive nights. That goalie was Michal Neuvirth, who faced high-scoring Dallas on Friday after recording a 4-2 win in St. Louis the previous night. Neuvirth, the supposed backup, has been sharper than Steve Mason for most of the season, especially in the recent games. "I don't want to compare, I guess, but Neuvy has been sharp," coach Dave Hakstol said before the game Hakstol said it's important to reward a goalie when he is playing well.

ALL AROUND the locker room after Monday's practice and on Tuesday after morning skate, the Flyers talked about the importance of Saturday's win. After a miserable four-game stretch from Buffalo through parts of western Canada, the Flyers escaped with a win in Winnipeg and found a little positive at the end of a sour trip away from Wells Fargo Center, where they returned Tuesday to play five of their next seven at home. The hope was that the momentum created by a shutout win would carry back home.

THE QUESTION was barely out of a reporter's mouth before Dave Hakstol started his answer. The first-year Flyers coach probably could have predicted he'd be asked about his goaltending situation Monday, given the recent play of Michal Neuvirth, who was signed this offseason to back up Steve Mason. Neuvirth capped off a great week with his NHL-leading third shutout of the season in a win over Winnipeg Saturday. With a .945 save percentage - aided by 45 stops in Edmonton last Tuesday - he entered Monday tied atop the league with Jake Allen and some guy named Henrik Lundqvist.
