Capitals vs. Maple Leafs Third Period Thread

Alex Ovechkin would start the scoring in the sixth minute of the middle frame, the Russian sniper finding space in the slot with Mikhail Grabovski feeding him an underhanded pitch for the dinger. Less than six minutes later the Maple Leafs would knot the game, James van Riemsdyk tallying his 16th of the season on the man advantage. A spirited bout between Carter Ashton and Tom Wilson would precede a heavyweight veteran affair between Colton Orr and John Erskine, the two entertaining match-ups getting Verizon Center back into the action. The game remains tied at one with twenty minutes left to play.
