Leafs draw even with Caps
The Maple Leafs didn't let another opportunity get away in Game 2.
Kasperi Kapanen scored two goals, including the winner 12 minutes into double overtime as Toronto evened up its best-of-seven series with Washington at a game apiece with a 4-3 victory on Saturday night.
Morgan Rielly and James van Riemsdyk also potted goals while Frederik Andersen stood tall again with 47 saves in a game that also saw Roman Polak exit with injury. Jake Gardiner and Rielly both played over 40 minutes in his absence.
The Leafs led 3-2 with just over seven minutes left in regulation when Nicklas Backstrom tied it 3-3 for the Capitals. The club also had a 2-0 first-period lead slip away two nights earlier in a Game 1 overtime defeat.
They ultimately rallied for their first post-season victory since May 12, 2013.
Why do are we okay with horrible stereotypes on St. Patrick's Day?
