Kapanen scores double OT winner as Leafs beat Capitals 4-3

Kapanen scores double OT winner as Leafs beat Capitals 4-3

While the Presidents' Trophy-winning Caps have played 157 minutes of hockey in deciding exactly nothing over their first two games against Toronto, the Penguins - their absolute nemesis - have performed in a very business-like manner in beating the Blue Jackets by a combined score of 7-2.

The Leafs meanwhile are right back in the series thanks to a spectacular game two effort from youngster Kasperi Kapanen who netted two goals including the double OT victor and are now playing back at home in the ACC. Toronto has ridden the play of their youngsters all season long and the playoffs have been no different and with the likes of Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, and the like being leaned on to carry the bulk of the offense against Alex OVechkin, Nick Backstrom and company it should make for an exciting series that could go much longer than people anticipated coming in. A series few gave Toronto a chance in was tied.

"Great for Kappy to be rewarded a little bit (with two goals including the decisive goal on Saturday). But we're going to Toronto, and we'll see if we can do what they did to us". Then the Habs and Leafs would meet in the conference final and Montreal fans would have an immediate, total-body nervous breakdown, because it's pretty obvious this young and talented Toronto team is going to be a significant presence for some time to come. You go down two and then you've got to win four out of five.

"As far as minutes go, we'll be fine, we've got young legs", Rielly said.

He Checks Out! Birth Stats Revealed For April The Giraffe's Calf
The calf's father, Oliver, who watched the birth from an adjacent pen, is a first-time father at the age of 5. A GoFundMe fundraiser page that initially set a goal of $50,000 sat at more than $134,000 by Saturday night.

"We'll get used to it". You got to focus on what you can do and play the system that we're supposed to. It was the second day in a row Zaitsev skated, and to have him back would lessen the blow of losing Polak, who won't return this season, in a hurry.

NOTES: Zaitsev skated on his own Saturday morning, and Babcock said the Russian would skate again Sunday before a determination was made about Game 3. We're working so hard but I think we need to work a little smarter. Obviously, (Alexey Marchenko) or Zaitsev will play and whichever one is in, that's why you have eight and that's why you acquire depth during the year. "When you come back from injury it takes some time to feel good". "Unfortunate incident, really unfortunate for him and us". Nazem Kadri has played over 19 5v5 minutes against Alex Ovechkin, and in those minutes he narrowly has the better of the Great 8 in CF% (53% for Kadri), shots, and scoring chances.

Babcock was asked Sunday if the split in Washington puts pressure on the Capitals. "They are good team. But the reality of it is, it's going to be a long series no matter who you play, and if you play really well and you get a couple breaks and you execute, and you're playing well as a team, you may take out a team a little earlier", said Trotz, who added he's expecting a "long" series.

As with every pending unrestricted free agent, MacLellan is holding off on decisions about who the Capitals can afford to keep and who they will have to move on from until after this postseason run.

BC NDP promise $400 yearly tenant rebate
The two-per-cent tax on a property's assessed value would give the government $200 million a year in additional revenue, the party said.

"What I tried to say to you before, I've lived both situations. He might be our best penalty killer on our team but you've got to get in the lineup". They're totally different. People can tell you they're not, I've lived it. As a forward group, boy, I would put them up with anybody.

Toronto dropped 10 games when leading after two periods during the regular season (31-1-9).

Babcock said he is not concerned about the energy level of his defense, particularly Gardiner and Rielly, for Game 3. "He's been good, too". Alzner has played in 540 consecutive regular-season games. The Caps held the Leafs without a shot for the first 11 minutes, buoyed by a charged crowd, which was given small red cowbells before the game. "We'll have a good game plan and the guys will be ready for tomorrow".

Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock doesn't often get through a media availability without making mention of the "right way" of doing things. It gook Justin Williams to pick up the slack, as the 35-year-old right winger took passes from T.J.
