Tampa Bay Lightning (0-2) vs
Washington Capitals (2-0)
The Washington Capitals took care of business in a major way to start the Eastern Conference Finals against the Tampa Lightning. They improved their league best road record in these playoffs to 7-1 by winning both games in Tampa Bay’s barn.
They never trailed game one, building a 4-0 lead before the Lightning scored two third period goals.
They scored first in game two as well -28 seconds in, but the Lightning took their first lead of the series at the 10:22 mark of the first period. The score remained 2-1 until Devante Smith-Pelly tied it early in the second.
The difference in game two was the last minute of the second period as Washington scored with 1:02 to go. And then after Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy drew a penalty with 10 seconds in the period Washington made them pay when Evgeny Kuznetsov scored with eighth with three seconds left. Two more third period goals against a dejected Lightning squad made the final 6-2.
Now Tampa Bay looks to return the favor heading to Washington needing a split at the very least, but ideally a sweep.
