NHL: "Washington" has opened the account in a series with "Tampa"


It was Ovechkin's ninth goal of the postseason and fourth on the power play. Updates with new lead, quotes. Alex Ovechkin has been tremendous, Evgeny Kuznetsov has been equally as hard to stop and if Nicklas Backstrom is healthy enough to suit up, Washington's top-six has enough weapons to offset the power of Tampa Bay's top two lines.

"We had a really good start". "We didn't give them much". While Washington had two goals, the Lightning had just two shots on goal in the first period. "It doesn't matter which position we are, which round it is". "Everybody was all in and everybody was paying the price".

Steven Stamkos and Ondrej Palat scored for the Lightning.

Despite Backstrom's absence, the Capitals opened with a 4-2 win over the top-seeded Lightning. Washington has to be pleased with how Game 1 went.

Cooper said he did not expect the Capitals to suffer a letdown.

"We're in the conference final".

In the second period, "Tampa" continued "yawn" attack "Washington".

While it's not always the son of a former player who gets the lucky role, Evan is the son of former Lightning player Adam Hall. The turning point of the game came with seven seconds left in the first period.

"That gave us a real boost. gave us some breathing room", Capitals coach Barry Trotz said.

Beagle and Eller scored slightly more than four minutes apart in the second period.

Tampa Bay replaced goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy with Louis Domingue after the starter allowed four goals on 25 shots through two periods. He wired home a one-timer off a cross-ice Kucherov feed at 3:45. The Capitals defeated the Lightning 4-2.

Stamkos and Kucherov had one shot between them in the first two periods. The puck drops at 8:00 p.m.

Lightning founder and Hall of Famer Phil Esposito joins Rick Stroud to break down the Eastern Conference final between the Lightning and Capitals.Esposito talks about what has impressed him most during the Lightning's playoff run and just h. The Lighting should be the favorite here based on it nearly being a must-win, and the fact they're the deeper, better team from top to bottom. "You just got to stay out of the box". We've been in this situation before, unfortunately. "We have to do the same here". Shortly before the end of the first period, Kuznetsov assisted on Ovechkin, who scored 17 points in 13 games for the Stanley Cup. Defensively, the Tampa Bay Lighting are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 76.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Norris Trophy finalist Victor Hedman can take over a game at either end of the ice, Anton Stralman continues to provide a steadying force on the blueline and a former weakness for the Lightning now appears to be one of their strengths.

Why The Capitals Win There aren't many teams that can keep up with the Lightning shot-for-shot, goal-for-goal, but the Capitals have proven over the course of the post-season that they are most certainly one.
