Air Canada Centre was loud and rowdy early in Game Three as the Leafs played their first playoff game at home in like half a decade. The crowd’s noise levels were high, then Alex Ovechkin shut them up (briefly).

The Caps were already up 1-0 thanks to Nick Backstrom’s early attack, but the Caps kept pressing. Backstrom was involved again here, taking the puck from Oshie down low and serving it up nice and smooth to Alex Ovechkin.
From north of the Ovi Spot, Ovechkin unleashed a ferocious one-timer.
The Caps have the lead. The crowd in Toronto was downright sullen. Meanwhile, Caps fans were manically texting each other “OMG” and “You see your boy 88 on the ice for that Ovi goal?”
Yes. We saw.
#Caps Alex Ovechkin scored a goal in his second straight game, marking his franchise-leading 43rd career playoff goal.
