The Capitals head back to Toronto for Game 6 against the Maple Leafs on Sunday with a chance to win their first-round 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoff series.
A 2-1 overtime victory in Game 5 on Friday night earned the Capitals a 3-2 series lead, which means Sunday night presents an opportunity to eliminate the Maple Leafs and advance to the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.
If the Capitals are able to win Game 6, they will advance to face the Penguins, which eliminated the Blue Jackets 4-1.
But winning Game 6 will be easier said than done, even after Alex Ovechkin was determined to be healthy and ready to go on Sunday by head coach Barry Trotz.
Ovechkin spent much of the first period of Game 5 in the Capitals locker room after he was the recipient of a dangerous hip check from Nazem Kadri.
The Capitals are also expected to be without Karl Alzner, who missed the previous three games with an injury. Alzner had played in 599 consecutive games prior to the injury.
The other question mark for Game 6 is Tom Wilson. The Toronto native is healthy, but after providing playoff heroics in Game 1 and Game 4, Wilson spent a majority of Game 5 in the penalty box, and was benched by Trotz for much of the third period and overtime.
Game 6: Washington Capitals (1st place, 55-19-8, 118 points) vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (wild card 2, 40-27-15, 95 points)
