Graovac in for Eller, who is ill... Leafs had had 2 real good chances already in the first 2:00...

Toronto with 5 SOGs after 3:40 of play...

also Walker and Bowey playing, Chiasson and Ness out tonight...

lots of zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz so far... finally a TV timeout 6:14 left 1st.

Fast slow period.

As a Leaf breaks in, Carlson wipes out... luckily, the guy misses everything... more timeout...

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz... Caps to the PP with 1:10 left 1st...

Ovechkin, wide open... gets nothing but glass... Oshie, in alone... nothing but boards...

0-0 end 1st.

Still :40 of PP to start the 2nd.

Uh oh- "injured Cap, will not be back tonight..."

Wilson? Left thumb? They show a shot of him shaking it on the bench, a trainer at his side, early in the period...

nope, it's Graovac... collarbone area, I think they said...

2nd on...

Killed by the Leafs, no SOGs... halfway through the 2nd now...

this game may end up 1-0 in the shootout- no one on either team seems able to get the puck on net.

5:49 left 2nd, Caps get the PP again on a dog, Kadri carried the puck for a couple seconds... 3 SOGs on it, but killed again...

the Leafs to the PP with 3:12 left 2nd, Djoos with the hold... lol Leafs guy passes instead of shooting on a mostly open net, to... JVR, who can't handle the pass with a completely wide open net... now the Leafs ice it on their own PP... killed, no SOGs on it...

0-0, end 2nd.

SOGs are 17-17, Leafs have 16 misses, the Caps 8.

Carlson, after 2 periods- 19:17 TOI... earlier I said Djoos (29) penalty, my bad it was Walker (79)...

Vrana, for all his buzzing around tonight, 1 SOG... Backstrom, 0... Caps with 11 giveaways after 2... today is Beagle's birthday...

3rd on.

Tough early shift- Oshie loses both gloves, his stick, and heads for the bench in pain... Leafs get a wicked shot off, crossbar... thug Ovechkin to the box for high sticking...

at 1:03 left of the Leafs' PP, we go 4 on 4 (Bozak with a slash)...

now :57 Caps' PP... killed...

long shift, Caps can't clear, finally a shot and someone stuffs the rebound between Holtby's legs...

1-0 Leafs 14:07 left reg.

7:34 left, icing Leafs... 6:28... 6:12, icing Caps... Andersen covers at 4:54... Andersen again at 3:08... a timeout...

2:30... 2:06 icing Leafs... Caps' timeout, Holtby will be pulled...

ENG with :21.1- Ovechkin would have gone on a penalty anyway.

2-0 Leafs, final.

"Syndicating" from the coach-specific thread:

With 3:08 remaining in last night's game, during the extended stoppage, I looked to my left and saw all I needed to see.

The Toronto Maple Leafs—literally everyone wearing blue and white that wasn't also wearing a goalie mask—were all focused on the center of the bench where I presume the coaching staff was dispensing a few tidbits about what the next few minutes should look like. This was the team in the lead.

The team that was trailing, on the other hand, looked like a tee-ball team in the outfield. Every player was looking in a different direction, sort of paying attention to random shit around the rink, and I think Blaine Forsythe briefly showed TJ Oshie a whiteboard when they were on the big screen. It wasn't until the timeout (taken after the Maple Leafs iced the puck, by the way) with the net empty that the Caps coaching staff decided they needed to plan something.

Punched. Out.

Strong game by Holtby, apparently, but no offense. I guess after the 8-2 loss, they focused a little too much on defense.

Bad situation in defense, Niskanen is very important. Something will have to be done.
