Tom Wilson, Marcus Johansson and Justin Williams also scored, Braden Holtby made 32 saves and the Capitals improved to 7-2-0 on the road and 17-5-1 overall.
It was the third straight loss for last-place Toronto. Peter Holland and Leo Komarov had goals for the Maple Leafs, and Jonathan Bernier made 19 saves in his first start in nearly two weeks — starter James Reimer sat with a lower-body injury.
Chimera opened the scoring 3:43 in by floating a rolling puck past Bernier.
