Nicklas Backstrom scored, Braden Holtby had 26 saves, and the Washington Capitals beat the Philadelph­ia Flyers 1-0 in Game 6 to win the series 4-2 and advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Capitals will play the Pittsburgh Penguins, setting up a marquee matchup of Alex Ovechkin vs. Sidney Crosby. Ovechkin had an assist on Backstrom’s secondperi­od goal that was easily enough against the punchless Flyers.
