​The Washington Caps are going for the repeat, and after taking Game 1 they find themselves in prime position to take a commanding lead in their series against the Carolina Hurricanes. With under ten minutes remaining in the period, Alex Ovechkin found a trailing Tom Wilson to give Washington a 3-2 lead.

​​An insurmountable deficit for the Canes? No, but considering the Caps experience playing with the lead in the postseason after last year's run, a comeback attempt won't be easy.
