The Flyers scored four power-play goals to rally past the Washington Capitols 5-4 on Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

It was the visiting Caps who started the scoring with first-period goals by Eric Fehr and John Erskine. Philly got on the board with 24 seconds left in the first on a power-play goal by Jakub Voracek.

Another power-play tally, this one from Mark Streit, tied the game and continued a streak of five straight Flyers goals. Streit finished the night with a goal and three assists.

Troy Brouwer ended the Flyers’ streak of goals midway through the third period and Steve Oleksy scored with time winding down.

Ray Emery was the starting goalie for the Flyers, yielding two goals on 11 shots. Rob Zepp relieved him and made 17 saves on 19 shots.

And in Toronto, David Booth scored the only shootout goal, and the Toronto Maple Leafs edged a Flyers split squad 3-2 in a preseason game.

Nazem Kadri, playing in his hometown, scored with 15 seconds remaining in the second period to make it 2-1. Kadri then set up the tying goal 1:39 into the third by threading a cross-ice pass to defenseman Tom Nilsson, who fired a one-timer past Anthony Stolarz.

Matt Read and Michael Raffl had goals for the Flyers, and Nick Cousins assisted on both. Stolarz played the entire game and made 29 saves.

Toronto’s Christopher Gibson stopped 11 of 12 shots, and Cal Heeter did the same in relief. Heeter earned the win after playing in the Flyers’ system last season for Adirondack of the AHL.
