How to Watch Lightning vs. Capitals Game 3

The Capitals have two things going right for them at the moment: They are still up 2-1 in their series with the Tampa Bay Lightning, and they do not have home-ice advantage.

Stamkos ripped a power-play goal at 13:53 of the first period, on an assist from Victor Hedman. "We didn't get 113 points by playing that way".

The Capitals certainly aren't panicking at 2-1, but they need to be wary of their own ugly history when winning the first two games on the road (they're 0-2 in a series where they do that).

"We know both teams have pretty good special teams, and if we're going to play like that, they're going to use it", said Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, who combined with Kuznetsov to put 21 shots on net.

The Capitals improved to 7-1 on the road in these playoffs with Sunday's 6-2 win and the Lightning now must win one of two in Washington to send the series back to Tampa Bay.

Lars Eller has filled in for Backstrom centering the second line between Jakub Vrana and T.J. Oshie, and on Washington's first power-play unit.

This was the first game the Capitals have lost since Nicklas Backstrom left Game 5 against Pittsburgh with an upper-body injury.

Lightning head coach Jon Cooper has noted his team's lack of ability to make plays. Brayden Point of the Lightning deflated those fans 5 minutes, 32 seconds later with his sixth goal of the playoffs.

It wasn't ideal, but it was a more complete effort from Tampa Bay, which jumped out to a 2-0 lead before Brett Connolly answered for Washington in the second. "We talked about this, you've got to make them chase the game". "He's our best player". And that gives him confidence that we're on.

Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby allowed four goals on 23 shots, though power-play one-timers by Stamkos and Kucherov were nearly impossible to stop.

"We haven't done anything yet", Stamkos said.

"They came in here, they're desperate and they played that way", said Capitals coach Barry Trotz. "We've made it a series".

Moreover, with the power-play goal - the 10th of his postseason career - Stamkos passed Martin St. Louis to become Tampa Bay's all-time leading playoff power-play scorer, at 25 points, per Bryan Burns.
