The Capitals beat the Leafs 3-2 in a dramatic shootout win at Verizon Center on Saturday night. Nicklas Backstrom tied the game at 2-2 with 0.8 seconds left on the clock. Alex Ovechkin tied Sergei Federov’s record for most goals in the NHL by a Russian-born player getting his 483rd career goal, and almost broke the record, until his goal was controversially waved off for goaltender interference.
