The 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs set a record with 18 overtime games in the same round when the Washington Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs went past regulation in Game 6 of their Eastern Conference First Round series at Air Canada Centre on Sunday.

The previous record for most overtime games in a round was set in 2013. The Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins played the 17th game to reach overtime in the 2017 playoffs earlier Sunday.

Seven games in the first round last year reached overtime.

Sunday marked the fifth game in their series that the Maple Leafs and Capitals went to overtime.
