Stanley Cup Playoffs Gm 5 - Caps vs Leafs (4/21/17)

Well, the best that can be said is that the Caps did what they had to do in Toronto in splitting the two games there. They now hold home ice advantage again. But the Leafs have seemed to have the run of play throughout the series. They're skating better, have better goaltending, keep possession of the puck better.

One game at a time. Can your Caps win and take a 3-2 advantage over Toronto? Post your thoughts, predictions, and opinions here.

C-A-P-S....CAPS! CAPS! CAPS!

WHAT: Washington Capitals vs Toronto Maple Leafs

Stop turning the damn puck over right in the middle of the ice. WTF.

Caps got the run of play in the 3rd. I think we can take this.

Justin Williams with the game winner.

Caps take the series lead, 3-2.

Thank God for Williams. Everything in that stadium seems tight in overtime - I think the fans infect the players at this point. Williams seems to have mastered the calm in the moment thing.

Return to Washington Capitals
