LAST 10 GAMES: Hurricanes: 6-4-0, averaging three goals, five assists, 3.2 penalties and 6.6 penalty minutes while giving up 2.3 goals per game with a.919 save percentage.

"Guys are pretty disappointed", said head coach Rod Brind'Amour. That said, the Caps are capable of playing much better than they did in Thursday's opener, and they'll need to so on Saturday if they hope to lead the series when the scene shifts in a southerly direction next week. The execution on some of the things wasn't great. "But it's nice that the guys - once we go over it as a staff - that there is some confidence in the way we played".

Nazem Kadri scored the Leafs' only goal midway through the third, and Frederik Andersen made 37 saves for Toronto, which returns home for Games 3 and 4 on Monday and Wednesday nights.

The Capitals got a pair of golden chances to take a 4-0 lead early in the third period, but Mrazek came up with a pair of breakaway saves on Washington forwards Nic Dowd and Carl Hagelin.

"Sometimes until you actually taste the result, you don't know whether it's worth it or not", Capitals coach Todd Reirden said. Our biggest obstacle was us.

Directly after another pair of point-blank stops by Mrazek, the Canes got on the board.

The referees, the way they reffed the game - let a lot of stuff go, obviously. "You've got to stay patient", the 21-year-old said. We're really at a cross roads here, is Nazem Kadri the Next Tom Wilson? Kadri made his bed and now he has to sleep in it.

Trailing 3-0 after two periods, victim to two successfully executed Washington power plays, the Hurricanes dug a hole too deep to climb out of, despite back-to-back goals in the third period from rookie forward Andrei Svechnikov.

"If we can execute out of the zone quicker, their [defensemen] are very aggressive - much like Tampa a year ago, I would say - and if we are going to make plays and be able to execute plays behind them, we are going to get odd-man rushes all night". "We got our chance and scored a couple goals". We wanted to win the game. Alex Ovechkin capped it off to give the Capitals a 3-0 lead after the game's first 20 minutes. The Washington Capitals are averaging four goals per game and are scoring on 50 percent of their power play opportunities.

The Capitals host Game 2 Saturday afternoon looking to take a 2-0 lead in a series for just the third time in the past five playoffs. Despite amassing most of the games' shots, the Capitals scored three goals in the first period. "I want to beat the tails off them". We'll just see how our response is tomorrow.

Dump-and-chase is a curse word in today's National Hockey League, but many skilled players would rather throw the puck to an open area and skate without it to go retrieve it.

The Canes settled in during the second period and outhshot Washington 11-4, setting the stage for the third-period rally.
