The Washington Capitals ended the regular season leading the league with 118 points and a record of 55-19-8. Tonight they face the Maple Leafs for the 4th time with hopes to even the score considering that they are down 2 games to 1 after the first 3 meetings.  It’s never a pretty sight when the league’s best team starts the season in negative numbers ends up on the business end of trying to catch up.  They enter tonight’s matchup under pressure and will look to center Nicklas Backstrom to bring the same level of competition he brought in the regular season where he had 23 goals and 63 assists.

The Toronto Maple Leafs having only finished with 95 points and a record of 40-27-15 for the regular season are giving the Capitals a hard time as they advance through the 1st round of the playoffs.  All 3 games have gone into overtime with the Maple Leafs losing the 1st game with a score of 3-2 and winning the following 2 games by a score of 4-3 in both. Handing the Capitals their 3rd loss tonight may just demolish their chances at making it out of the 1st round but don’t expect them to throw in the towel just yet.
