The Toronto Maple Leafs will look to rebound from a recent home loss when they take on the visiting Washington Capitals on Sunday afternoon at Scotiabank Arena. Toronto, currently sitting in second place in the Atlantic Division with a record of 30-12-8, will look to take advantage of their home-ice advantage, as they boast a solid 19-4-4 record in front of their home crowd this season. The Leafs come into this matchup looking to bounce back from a tough 2-6 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

Right-wingman William Nylander will look to lead the charge for Toronto, as he notched a power-play goal on assists from John Tavares and Mitchell Marner in their last game, tying the score at 2-2 with just 2:44 minutes remaining in the second period. Despite Nylander’s efforts, Toronto’s defense faltered in the middle of the second period, allowing Ottawa to score four unanswered goals and ultimately resulting in a 2-6 upset loss. With the Leafs currently trailing division-leading Boston by 12 points, a win against Washington would be a crucial step towards securing a top spot in the division.
