Watch: Williams puts Maple Leafs on brink of elimination with Game 5 OT winner

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports / USA TODAY Sports

Mr. Game 7 came up clutch for the Washington Capitals in Game 5 on Friday night.

Justin Williams fired the overtime winner past Frederik Andersen just 1:04 into the extra frame to give the Capitals a 3-2 series lead over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The goal was Williams' third of the postseason, giving him a share of the team lead in that category with T.J. Oshie and Tom Wilson.

The series now shifts to Toronto for Game 6 on Sunday, where the Capitals will have the chance to eliminate the Maple Leafs on their home rink.
