Nic Dowd deflected in T.J. Oshie’s shot 4:41 into overtime to give the Washington Capitals a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of the first-round playoff series. The Capitals lost starting goaltender Vitek Vanecek to a lower-body injury early on, and backup Craig Anderson made 21 saves. Jake DeBrusk and Nick Ritchie scored for Boston while Tuukka Rask stopped 29 shots.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. homered in a 4-0 Blue Jays win over the Phillies. Philadelphia star Bryce Harper exited early with right shoulder soreness. The Phillies said he is day to day. Guerrero hit his 10th homer, a first-inning solo shot off Aaron Nola, and the Jays improved to 21 and 17.
Austin Nola homered, doubled and drove in a career-high six runs to lead the San Diego Padres 13-3 over the St. Louis Cardinals. The Padres beat the Cards for the second straight night. San Diego is missing five players, including star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (Tah-TEES), due to COVID-19 or contact tracing.
Khris Middleton and Bryn Forbes each scored 21 points to help the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Miami Heat 122-108. The matchup was a potential first-round playoff series preview. The Bucks are third and the Heat sixth in the Eastern Conference standings, which would have them meeting in the first round of the playoffs.
Yimmi Chara and Marvin Loria each scored their first goal of the season to help the Portland Timbers beat the San Jose Earthquakes 2-0. Down by one, the Earthquakes drew a penalty due to a hand ball by Claudio Bravo in the 61st minute. But Portland goalkeeper Logan Ketterer came up with the save, diving to his left to deny Chris Wondolowski’s attempt to tie the game.
