Caps win tight series over Leafs to set up rematch with Pens

On paper, it looked as if the Washington Capitals could cruise past the Toronto Maple Leafs as the Pittsburgh Penguins and Columbus Blue Jackets beat each other up on the other side of the bracket.

On the ice, the series could not have been more different.

Hardly looking as good as they did in the regular season, the Capitals needed six one-goal games - five of which went to overtime - to eliminate the up-and-coming Maple Leafs.
