In the National Hockey League, the Washington Capitals have edged past the Toronto Maples Leafs 3-2 at the Verizon center in the opening round Stanley Cup playoffs series.
The visiting Maple Leafs wasted little time taking the upper hand, with rookie Mitch Marner scoring 1 minute into the first period. The Maple Leafs then took a 2-nothing lead 9 minutes after Jake Gardiner netted the puck.
Tom Wilson's goal just 5 minutes into overtime gave Washington a 3-2 win and a 1-nothing lead in the best-of-seven series.
The Caps have won 8 in a row at home against the Leafs and 8 of the teams' past nine meetings. Game 2 will be held on Saturday.
