Surging Capitals aim to close out Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- After losing two games to start the postseason, the Washington Capitals stand on the brink of completing a comeback and advancing to the next round in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

A 4-3 overtime victory on Saturday in Washington gave the Capitals a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series and put them one win from closing out the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Game 6 will be played Monday night at Nationwide Arena, where the Capitals already have won twice in the playoffs.
