With their double-overtime win in Game 2 on Saturday, the Toronto Maple Leafs earned a series split through Games 1 and 2 in Washington. Now the Caps head to Toronto looking to retake the series lead in an all-important Game 3.
The Leafs' task of containing the Caps will be made more difficult without defenseman Roman Polak who suffered a season-ending lower-body injury in Game 2.
