(TSX / STATS) -- WASHINGTON -- Connor Brown broke a scoreless tie early in the third period, Frederik Andersen stopped 30 shots, and the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Washington Capitals 2-0 on Tuesday night at Capital One Center.

Toronto began the day leading the NHL with an average of 5.2 goals per game, and Washington was ninth (3.67), but the teams produced nearly 46 minutes of scoreless hockey.

The Leafs (5-1-0) took the lead after some solid forechecking kept the puck in the zone. Washington goalie Braden Holtby blocked Morgan Rielly's shot from the point. As Holtby tried to cover the puck, Brown's second swipe sent it into the net for his second goal of the season at 5:53 of the third.
