There can be no doubt: this was the best series in the first round of Stanley Cup playoffs. The Washington Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs played an intense, fast-paced, and evenly matched six games.
But now it’s over. Washington won.
After a series of plentiful scoring and endless highlights, we had a slog through forty minutes. In the third, Auston Matthews got a crazy bounce off a dump-in for a layup, but then Marcus Johansson drove hard to the corner of the net to tie it up with seven minutes left. That pushed us into our fifth overtime, where Marcus Johansson finished it with a ferocious fight from point blank.
Caps win 2-1 in overtime! Caps win the series 4-2!
