Mark Streit, Wayne Simmonds and Matt Read also had goals for the Flyers.

Alex Ovechkin and Eric Fehr scored for Washington.

Two days after blowing a 4-1 third-period lead at Washington in a 5-4 shootout loss, the Flyers rallied to win their seventh consecutive home game.

Steve Mason made 24 saves for Philadelphia, which evened its record at 15-15-4. The Flyers are 12-6-4 since an embarrassing 7-0 loss at home to the Capitals on Nov. 1. They’ll try to go over .500 for the first time this season Thursday night when they host Columbus.
