The Maple Leafs came to town to battle the Caps for the first time since the guys in red disposed of them in the playoffs last spring. What an uneventful game, eh?
The Caps fought off an early push from the Leafs and managed to push back as the period went on, but the first ended 0-0.
Second period scoring? Nope. Still 0-0 after two.
Connor Brown finally got the first goal of the game a little over five minutes into the third to put the Leafs up 1-0. Nazem Kadri added an empty net goal to ice the game.
Leafs beat Caps 2-0.
