TORONTO -- The Toronto Maple Leafs scored three power-play goals in a 6-2 win against the Washington Capitals at Air Canada Centre on Saturday.
Toronto led 3-0 and 5-1.
Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly scored 14:15 into the first period, with a rising slap shot from the left point that appeared to bounce off one or two Capitals defenders before beating goalie Justin Peters.
On his first shift, Kadri, playing his 200th NHL game, made a bad pass that was knocked out of the Washington zone, and then he fanned on an attempted wrist shot. Kadri was replaced by defenseman Cody Franson, who took a shot from the right point and scored his fourth goal of the season to make it 2-0 with 23 seconds left in the period.
The Capitals replaced Peters with Braden Holtby to start the second period and the Maple Leafs welcomed him to the game with a goal after 23 seconds on their first shot.
Washington cut Toronto's lead to 3-1 at 10:37 when Troy Brouwer scored his sixth goal of the season on the power play with a slap shot from the high slot that beat Maple Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier.
David Clarkson restored the Maple Leafs' three-goal lead 23 seconds later when he scored his seventh of the season on a snap shot from the slot.
With Washington defenseman Jack Hillen off for holding, Bozak scored his second of the game by tipping a pass from Phil Kessel past Holtby at 15:36.
Bozak had an opportunity to complete his hat trick late in the second period when he was set up in front of the Washington net, but his shot was stopped by Holtby.
Bozak has 11 two-goal games in his NHL career without getting a hat trick.
Holtby was replaced by Peters to start the third period.
Washington's Tom Wilson made it 5-2 at 7:43 of the third period when his routine-looking wrist shot managed to elude Bernier.
