The Toronto Maple Leafs are going into Wednesday night’s game leading the series 2-1 against the Washington Capitals. How are the Leafs currently feeling? Nothing short of super confident. If the Maple Leafs win Game Four and take a series lead of 3-1, it will be their first 3-1 series lead in 54 years after they beat the Detroit Red Wings in 1963. Would that be incredible to see? Absolutely, except one problem. The Capitals cannot lose this game or all of Caps twitter might burst dramatically into flames.
With a win from the Washington Capitals, they will tie the series and bring it back for an advantage to the Verizon Center for game five. A win from the Washington Capitals will also lower my blood pressure.
Puck drop at 7 PM on NBCSN. Pete money will have your recap.
Toronto leads the series 2-1.
|Team||Record||SA%||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Washington Capitals||55-19-8||53.2%||103.0||23.1% (4th)||83.8% (7th)|
|Toronto Maple Leafs||40-27-15||50.9%||98.6||23.8% (2nd)||82.5% (10th)|
Just you wait.
Trotz: “You’re going to see our best game tomorrow.”
