PHILADELPHIA - Ryan Stoa scored the tying goal with 21.7 seconds left in regulation, and Joel Rechlicz netted the shootout winner in the Washington Capitals' 4-3 preseason victory over a Philadelphia Flyers split squad on Monday night.

Philadelphia had scored three straight goals—including two in the third period—to erase a two-goal deficit.

John Carlson and Joel Ward both scored from point-blank range on Philadelphia's Ray Emery in the second period to give the Capitals a 2-0 edge. Emery finished with 29 saves on 32 shots.

Jakub Voracek started the Flyers' comeback, taking a pass from Jason Akeson and scoring on David Leggio to make it 2-1 in the final minute of the second period. Vincent Lecavalier tied it with a power-play goal 1:53 into the third, and Akeson put Philadelphia in front at 6:09.

Leggio stopped 14 of 17 shots in relief of Michal Neuvirth, who turned aside all 16 shots he faced.
