Capitals vs. Maple Leafs: Game 4 prediction

"It's not over yet", said Alex Ovechkin. "So that hasn't changed".

With the Maple Leafs down 2-0 to Washington and the building dead, Toronto centre Nazem Kadri took matters into his own hands in the first period Monday night. For the most part, Andersen wasn't tested too much during the third period and the Leafs dominated the Capitals, finishing the period with 28 shot attempts in comparison to the Capitals 9.

Here's some morning reading to get you through the long, agonizing wait until game time. Matthews broke his brief playoff dry spell with his two points and six shots (more than the first two games combined) while Nylander managed nine shot.

Dennis Rasmussen and Patrick Kane each scored the first goals this series for the Western Conference's No. 1 seed. "They've probably always been the best player and the best player on their teams and have always had the pressure to play well". "I thought they won all the battles and all the races".

When Washington was awarded a two-man advantage midway through the second and utterly squandered it, the game visibly turned after that and they would not score again. While they pulled back within one on Hyman's first career playoff goal 42 seconds after the Ovechkin marker, the Caps struck again for two more in a span of less than three minutes - both by Wilson, a Toronto native. The Leafs have proven to be the better team so far in this series.

Mike Babcock doesn't think fatigue will be an issue as the series continues.

"Until we change the narrative, that's going to be the question", Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen said. "You just have to go and do it". So everything is magnified, that's all. The Capitals were the Presidents' Trophy winners, loaded with veteran National Hockey League superstars and playoff experience (even if it wasn't all good).

All three games so far have been decided in overtime.

The Anaheim Ducks overcame the Calgary Flames 5-4 to lead their series 3-0. "This year, we were able to build that foundation and bring in a lot of really good young players". That gave the Capitals a five-on-three for two minutes, but they recorded just two shots on goal. Could Toronto send the favorites to an early elimination? But they generated few shots or scoring chances beyond the goals and the Leafs pushed back with Matthews' first of the series.

Ryan got free in the zone, tapping it in on assists by Kyle Turris and Erik Karlsson.

Blues goalie Jake Allen finished the game with 26 saves.

On April 4, when the Capitals played their last regular-season game in Toronto, Schmidt was in the lineup and scored a goal.

Matthews scored in the first to get the Leafs back to 2-1 after the Caps came out flying with two quick goals.

Noel Acciari and David Backes also scored for the Bruins. The 23-year-old first stopped Morgan Rielly's shot from sneaking across the goal-line and then raced to the other end to deflect an innocent Lars Eller shot.

(At) Nashville 3, Chicago 2, OT: Kevin Fiala scored on a backhander 16:44 into overtime, and the Predators rallied from a 2-0 deficit in the third period to push the Blackhawks to the brink of elimination in Game 3 of the first-round series. Pekka Rinne made 34 saves, even with his franchise playoff scoreless streak ending early in the second period at 141 minutes, 5 seconds. Now they will try to carry that over into Game 5 in Edmonton on Thursday night.

CALGARY, Alberta - Patrick Eaves, Nate Thompson and Ryan Getzlaf scored, and Anaheim beat Calgary for a sweep of their first-round playoff series.

Tom Wilson, who scored the overtime victor in the opener, had a pair in a dominant first period which saw the Caps outshoot the Leafs 15-6 and manage 26 even-strength shot attempts to just 14 for Toronto.
