Ovechkin, Capitals looking to close out Maple Leafs

TORONTO -- The Washington Capitals expect to have Alex Ovechkin "ready to go" Sunday night in Game 6 when they try to clinch their Eastern Conference playoff series with the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre.

Ovechkin left Game 5, which the Capitals won 2-1 in overtime Friday to take a 3-2 series lead, late in the first period at the Verizon Centre when hit on the left knee by a low hip check from Toronto's Nazem Kadri.

Washington's star left winger returned for the second period and played the rest of the game. Ovechhin seemed to suffer no after-effects.
