Maple Leafs Beat Capitals 3-2 For First Home Win
TORONTO (AP) — Nikolai Kulemin and Matt Frattin scored third-period goals to give the Toronto Maple Leafs their first home win of the season with a 3-2 comeback victory over the Washington Capitals on Thursday night.
Kulemin tied it 2-all at 7:40 of the third, poking in a puck that squeezed through Michal Neuvirth’s legs following Michael Kostka’s shot from the point. As the Washington goalie tried in vain to squeeze his pads, Kulemin reached behind and nudged the puck in for his first of the year.
Frattin made it 3-2, capping a nice passing play with Nazem Kadri at 9:53 by tapping in the puck for his fourth goal — and sixth point — in four games.
