Lightning Silence Capitals in DC

Lightning Silence Capitals in DC

Sixteen seconds into the man advantage, Nikita Kucherov went high glove side off a one-time pass from defenseman Victor Hedman to give the Lightning a 2-0 lead early in the second period.

Tampa Bay has at least one power-play goal in eight straight games and is 5-for-12 (41.7 percent) against Washington, which failed to score on three power plays Tuesday.

For a group making their first trip to the Eastern Conference Final, the Washington Capitals look right at home. "We haven't had to really deal with that so far in the playoffs". We've made it a series. Ovi had nine shots on goal and 18 shot attempts total on the night.

The expansion Vegas Golden Knights, meanwhile, are slight favorites over their Western Conference opponents, the Winnipeg Jets, even though the latter has more first-line firepower and the series is even at 1-1. Coach Barry Trotz continues to call Backstrom day-to-day.

"I didn't think we were as focused as we have been normally on the road". "All the buildings are pretty well the same these days". After finishing third in the regular season (23.9 percent) behind the Pittsburgh Penguins (26.2) and Toronto Maple Leafs (25.0), they are 15-for-50 (30.0) on the power play in 13 playoff games, third behind the Boston Bruins (36.4) and Capitals (30.8).

The Capitals still own a 2-1 series lead with Game 4 coming Thursday at home. "We've got to go out there and win games on the road, and we've done that in the playoffs and we've got to do it again". Stamkos took a Braydon Coburn shot off his right leg, where he had a lateral tear of his meniscus past year.

Did the Lightning feel they owed their goalie one, after hanging him out to dry for 10 goals in the first two games?

Per Scott Allen of the Washington Post, Wilson is traveling from her home in Rochester, New York to Washington D.C. for the game after receiving permission to travel from her doctors. "We're having more fun when we're winning, and we know we have to do the little things, we have to take care of the details". "At this time of the year, it's all business", said forward Mathieu Perreault. Much like the first two games of the series, a strong start will be important as the teams battle for the lead, and that means on both ends of the ice in a series already defined by quick offensive outbursts. Just after the halfway point, the Capitals' depth players got the team on the board.

"Today was one of those games you feed pucks to Kuch and Stammer, pucks are going to go in", said Hedman.
