Marcus Johansson stuffed his second goal of the game past Frederik Andersen 6:31 into overtime, lifting the Washington Capitals to a series-winning 2-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 6 on Sunday night.
Johansson pulled Washington even at 1-1 with less than eight minutes to go in the third period after Auston Matthews broke a scoreless tie with his fourth goal of the series for Toronto. It was the fifth overtime game of the series, and the record-setting 18th in the first round of the playoffs.
