    WASHINGTON -- Kris Beech scored with 3:41 remaining in the third period to give the Washington Capitals a 1-0 preseason victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night.

    Beech circled behind the net and stuffed a wraparound shot past Flyers goalie Robert Esche, who finished with 32 saves.

    Brent Johnson had 26 saves for the Capitals (3-1-1), who had two victories in four days over Philadelphia (1-5).

    Reigning Calder Trophy winner Alexander Ovechkin had three shots in both the first and third periods, but did not score for Washington. Capitals center Dainius Zubrus, a former Flyers player who underwent knee surgery during the offseason, made his preseason debut and took two shots during his 19:45 on the ice.

    Flyers defenseman Denis Gauthier was shaken up with 8:24 remaining in the second period when he took a knee to the head from Ovechkin. Gauthier was helped off the ice and did not return.
