PHILADELPHIA -- The Washington Capitals showed they can do just fine without Alex Ovechkin. PJ Tucker Jersey . With their captain and leading scorer at home nursing an injury, the Capitals put together their best offensive effort of the season in a 7-0 rout of the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night. Joel Ward scored three goals for his first NHL hat trick in the fight-filled outburst. Wards linemate, Jason Chimera, added a goal and three assists, and Nicklas Backstrom and Mikhail Grabovski each had three points as the Capitals (6-7) won for the first time this season when Ovechkin didnt score a goal. Ovechkin didnt make the trip to Philadelphia because of an upper-body injury. "When (Chimera) and I talked in the warmup, I said, Gee, I feel pretty good today," Ward said. "He kind of looked at me and said the same thing. "Weve just been rolling. (Chimera) has been flying and getting some big goals for us." Washington had been 0-4 when Ovechkin, who entered Friday second in the league with 10 goals, didnt score. "We worked as a team," Backstrom said. "We scored on our chances. Thats what you have to do, especially when you have a good goal-scorer out of the lineup. "Lots of guys stepped up, and thats exactly what we needed." Braden Holtby coasted to a shutout, making 30 saves. Wards third-period goal that made it 7-0 sparked a brawl. Just 9 seconds later, Philadelphias Wayne Simmonds fought Washingtons Tom Wilson. Flyers goalie Ray Emery then took on Holtby in another bout. "As a group, I think its a frustrating night," Emery said. "Fans are frustrated, and we dont accept that. I think frustration sometimes shows that way." Emery received the highest total of 29 penalty minutes. He was charged with leaving the goal crease, instigating a fight, and fighting. He was also ejected from the game. During the fight, he knocked Holtby off his feet and landed several hits before an official broke it up. "He didnt want to fight, but I basically said, Protect yourself," Emery said. In the melee, a total of 114 penalty minutes were handed out. Overall, Philadelphia racked up 99 penalty minutes, and Washington received 65. "They play that type of game," Capitals coach Adam Oates said. "They like five, seven power plays a night, both sides. We dont. We want to roll four lines. We want to get everybody involved." Holtby was perfect in handing the Flyers their first shutout loss of the season. Philadelphia (3-9) entered tied for last in the league with just 20 goals. "Its embarrassing to be playing in front of our fans and losing 7-0," Flyers captain Claude Giroux said. "Its not acceptable and we need to figure it out." The Capitals didnt register their first shot until 4:56 remained in the first period. A little over two minutes later, Backstrom gave them the lead. Nate Schmidt saved a Flyers clearing attempt and shuffled the puck to Martin Erat, who quickly passed it to Backstrom at the top of the right circle for a wrist shot over Steve Masons glove. Ward made it a two-goal advantage 1:24 into the second period on an assist from Chimera. "Their line has been playing very well," Oates said. "A lot of good things are happening because theyre playing very well, playing together. Then youre in the right spot, good things happen, you get chances and sometimes the puck goes in for you." Less than a minute later, Chimera beat Mason on a breakaway. That prompted Flyers coach Craig Berube to pull Mason and replace him with Emery. That made little difference as Emery allowed another goal to Backstrom just 65 seconds after the goalie entered the game. After Ward made it 5-0 at 16:25 of the second period, new Flyers forward Steve Downie -- perhaps trying to spark his team in his debut -- fought Aaron Volpatti. While it earned applause from the crowd, Downie was handed an instigation penalty and a 10-minute misconduct. The Capitals took advantage, making it 6-0 on Troy Brouwers power-play goal. It ended a streak of 15 straight penalties killed by the Flyers. Washington, however, extended its penalty-killing streak to 30. Philadelphia was 0 for 5 with the man advantage. Backstrom has 35 points, including 11 goals, in 22 career games against Philadelphia. NOTES: Downie began his second stint with the Flyers, who acquired him Thursday from Colorado for forward Maxime Talbot. Downie sustained a head injury during his fight and was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania after the game, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said. ...

They didnt let Boston score again. Thats how to snap a defensive slump. LeBron James scored 11 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter, Chris Bosh added 16 and the Heat beat the Celtics 93-86 on Tuesday night -- finishing the game on a 9-0 run after trailing 86-84 with 3:08 left. "Its difficult doing what we do," Bosh said. "But thats why were the champs, to do the difficult thing again and get the job done. Tonight was a good start. We just have to build off of it." Chris Andersen scored 13 points and made all five of his shots for Miami, which had given up at least 100 points in four of its last six games. The Heat are 25-1 when allowing less than 100 points; 5-11 otherwise. Brandon Bass scored 15 points, Kris Humphries had 14 points and 13 rebounds, and Jeff Green had 12 points for the Celtics, who enjoyed a 46-33 edge in rebounds but shot only 39 per cent. And when it was over, Celtics coach Brad Stevens had a simple assessment of the final 3 minutes. "LeBron James happened," Stevens said. James made seven free throws in the final 2:33, the only other points down the stretch coming on a jumper by Ray Allen that put the Heat up for good. James did the rest, while the Celtics missed their final four shots. Rajon Rondo, still coming around after returning from knee surgery, missed all eight of his shots, plus a pair of free throws with the Celtics down four with 44.4 seconds remaining. Avery Bradley, the Celtics other starting guard, was lost in the second quarter with a sprained right ankle. "LeBron got a bunch of calls down the stretch," Bass said. "We expect that. We just wished we could have kept him off the line." The Celtics rallied from a 10-point deficit to win 111-110 in their first trip to Miami this season. They seemed poised for a bigger comeback this time, steadily chipping away at a big Miami lead by getting it down to 11 by halftime, then four entering the fourth. And a dunk by Humphries with 3:08 left -- about a half minute after JJames tried a reverse dunk that rimmed out -- put the Celtics on top for the first time since the opening minutes. James Harden Jersey. Thus ended Bostons offence for the evening. "Its the only way were going to be able to win games, if we defend," James said. As if playing without Dwyane Wade isnt difficult enough for Miami -- he was out for the 12th time this season -- the Heat found themselves facing a sticky situation at his position just 71 seconds after tip-off. Allen, who started in Wades spot, was called for two fouls in a span of 11 seconds. But the Heat rolled the dice and left him in until 4.3 seconds remained in the opening quarter, a move that paid off two ways. One, Allen didnt get in any deeper foul trouble. Two, Michael Beasley made those 4.3 ticks on the clock count. Without even time to work up a droplet of sweat, Beasley banked in a 35-footer at the horn of the first quarter to give Miami a 29-15 edge. And another beat-the-clock 3 -- this one by Bosh, with 2.0 seconds left and somewhat less dramatic than Beasleys -- put Miami up 51-40 at intermission. Boston used a 13-2 run to get to 42-35 late in the second. Thats when Greg Oden made his first home-court impact with the Heat. Oden -- playing in Miami for the first time since Nov. 12, 2008 -- blocked a dunk attempt by Green, then after a timeout had a follow slam of a miss by James to help snuff out the Boston rally. The Celtics just kept coming back. The Heat, though, had the final answer. "Erik sits over there and its been a long stretch for them, a hard stretch for them," Stevens said of Spoelstra. "Im sure the last 5 minutes he feels really good about what he can build on moving forward because that teams really good and they didnt even have Wade." NOTES: The Heat are 24-6 when Wade plays, 6-6 when he doesnt. ... Former Heat C Joel Anthony, who was traded to Boston last week, got a video tribute on the scoreboard and a standing ovation during the first quarter. The ovation was slightly less robust when he hit a jumper in the second quarter, though some still stood and clapped. ... James got his trophy for being Eastern Conference player of the month for December at halftime.
