    Capitals beat Bruins to earn East 3 seed, face Isles next

    T.J. Oshie and Tom Wilson scored, Braden Holtby made 30 saves and the Washington Capitals beat the Boston Bruins 2-1 in round-robin play Sunday to clinch the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference and set up a first-round matchup against former coach Barry Trotz's New York Islanders. ''We know their system well,'' captain Alex Ovechkin said. Boston, which won the Presidents' Trophy as the top team during the NHL regular season that was cut short in March, lost all three of its seeding games and fell to fourth in the East.

    Columbus hopes for Game 5 bounceback after historic collapse

    No team in NHL history with a chance to win a playoff series had blown a three-goal lead in the final four minutes. The Toronto Maple Leafs scored three goals in 3:34 and another in overtime to stun the Blue Jackets and force a deciding Game 5 of the qualifying round series Sunday (8 p.m. EDT, NBC Sports Network). Toronto players had the benefit of getting back on the ice less than 24 hours after their blown 3-0 lead.
