After two rounds in overtime, the Maple Leafs were able to take game two from the Capitals. With the series tied up, the stage is now shifting to Toronto, as the Capitals and Maple Leafs will face off in game three of their series. Both teams want to capture the lead in the series, so get ready for a great game. Washington and Toronto played amazing back and forth hockey in game two, so expect the same energy and excitement to carry over into this one.
The Capitals are heading into enemy territory and are looking to snag another win to regain the series lead. Hoping to leave Washington with a 2-0 lead in the series, those hopes were dashed by the overtime winner. While the offense was on fire in game two, it seemed like the defense was lacking. Toronto was able to exhaust and exert onto the Washington D, which helped them nab three goals in the game. If the Capitals want to take the win in this game, then they are going to need to clean up their performance in their own blue zone. The Capitals need to return to the playstyle they have used all season. They barely won the first game in overtime and gave up a lead to lose game two. We have seen the Capitals dominate the opposing teams all year long, so it just seems out of place for the top-seeded team to be slacking. If the Capitals can learn from their mistakes, then they will be able to win this series.
Toronto is not letting their Wild Card spot get the best of them, as they have been right on par with the Capitals. With both games being decided in overtime, it shows how the Maple Leafs are not letting the Capitals walk all over them. With a chance to take the lead in their hometown, the Leafs will put on quite the show for their fans. This city is aching for the cup back, so winning this series is big for not just the Maple Leafs, but also for Toronto. If the Maple Leafs can keep their playstyle and game up then there is no doubt they will be able to steal this series away from the Capitals.
