Caps looking better now. They needed that goal to get really started.

Yeah I think the adrenaline is about gone on the Toronto side- they're about to go into "just another hockey game" mode.

Williams playing hard in this shift too. Great.

Orpik and Shattenkirk are -2.

I am kinda worried about the way the lines are facing. I mean this so-called third line with Nylander and Matthews is very dangerous (22 + 40 goals this season [EDIT: plus the 10 by LW Hyman]), and they sometimes end up facing the Caps' top line. Maybe the 3rd and 4th lines should take care of them.

Burakovsky almost scores against Holtby in the last second.

First intermission, 2-1 Leafs.

I'll take it, atrocious period and only down 1. I think Holtby's played well, he's just not getting much help (yet).

I had a short night and a long day, so I'll stop here. I'll follow the next game entirely, though.

Have fun, Roger. happy.gif And let's go, Caps!

Ok! Have a great evening!

Actually, as bad as it looked, stats are pretty even.

Don Cherry says Caps will come out smokin' in the 2nd... hope he's correct.

With the Leafs feed now, and they just showed on Holtby, last 4 playoffs- best save % in League at .939, worst goal support at 1.98.

Kind of says it all.

Leafs swarming, they get a post but no goal... 7:11 left 2nd now... Andersen interferes with a hip check behind his net, no call...

more icing Caps, 5:37... nothing really good going on, but the Caps look a little more composed this period... and they've taken the lead in hits, I guess trying to wear down the young Leafs... TV timeout...

Caps come down and score!!

2-2!! Williams again!!

And now the Caps to the PP... this could do it...

nothing on it- couple of clears, Ovechkin loses an edge after rushing it the length, finally a turnover to end it...

2-2, end 2nd.

New game. Next goal is huge.

Stats favor Leafs now... big stat is 4th career 2 goal game for Williams... Caps actually went 6:00+ without a shot, but took over the last few minutes of the period...

we shall see. Leafs have 28 hits total, but Martin and Komarov have 7 each...

3rd on, first 1:00 all Leafs... 17:19 left reg, mostly Leafs, but- ZI've seen the Caps twice already try for that pass to get a breakaway...

16:14 Andersen save, and a little scrum... Wilson jawing at Komarov as they get to the benches... now just a great shift from Bura and company, 3 SOGs on it, Shattenkirk with 3 keep ins... Caps are buzzing now... Ovechkin a pass to Backstrom, but Andersen gets it again, TV timeout... Leafs get a clear 2 on 1... Holtby! HUGE save!...

12:47 left reg... Caps buzzing again, cycling better, another SOG Andersen gloves, more physical stuff- becoming a playoff game...

another HUGE save by Andersen... now the Leafs, and all the action around Holtby... around 8:30 left, TV timeout...

Ovi and Backstrom, Backy the pass, and... over the net... 6:11 left reg... Andersen save, TV timeout at 5:46...

all Caps to 4:37, 2 great shifts...

wow great Caps rush, Kuz to Johansson on a close 2 on 1, Andersen BIG glove...

icing Caps at :24.2... too much action to describe the last few minutes... Andersen gloves at the buzzer...

OT. Playoff hockey.
