Brown scores as Leafs continue hot start, beat Caps 2-0

WASHINGTON (AP) Connor Brown made the most of his move up the lineup to keep the Toronto Maple Leafs' hot start rolling.

Brown scored the game-winning goal in the third period as the Maple Leafs beat the Washington Capitals 2-0 Tuesday night in a rematch of their first-round playoff series last spring. Toronto, which handed Washington its second consecutive loss since losing top defenseman Matt Niskanen to injury, has won five of its first six games.

"We feel good about our team," said Brown, who poked a rebound past Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby with 14:07 left for his second goal of the season. "We're really excited about what we have. We feel like we're getting better defensively and I think we've got a lot of options that can score goals. That helps you win night in, night out."
