The Capitals (3-2-1) trailed 5-2 after the Flyers' Simon Gagne scored early in the third period. Moments later the lead was one, when Matt Pettinger and Viktor Kozlov, with an assist from Ovechkin, scored 23 seconds apart.
Ovechkin scored his second goal off his own rebound with 2:49 remaining to tie the score at 5, and just over a minute later he found Fleischmann, who slammed the puck past Flyers goalie Antero Niittymaki. David Steckel added an empty net goal, his second of the game, and Kozlov and Boyd Gordon each tacked on two assists.
The Capitals outshot the Flyers 41-19.
Danny Briere had an assist and two power play goals, all in the second period, as the Flyers (3-4) took an early 4-1 lead. Mike Richards' shorthanded goal past Capitals goalie Olaf Kolzig in the first period put the Flyers up 1-0. Denis Gauthier scored the second goal, and Gagne and Mike Knuble each added two assists.
