Washington defeats Tampa Bay 4-2, Alex Ovechkin goal and assist. Defensively, the Tampa Bay Lighting are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 76.1 percent of their opponents power plays.
The Golden Knights have surprised everyone this year, and they should not be underestimated. Instead of making simple plays and getting pucks on net, they looked for the flawless shots. Shortly before the end of the first period, Kuznetsov assisted on Ovechkin, who scored 17 points in 13 games for the Stanley Cup. The Capitals kicked off the scoring at the 7:28 mark of the first period when Michal Kempny got his first goal of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He made seven saves on seven shots.
All season, the Lightning have thrived on quick feet and quicker decisions. Holtby has gone 9-5 with a 2.75 GAA and a.910 save percentage against the Lightning in his career (Regular season). However, the goal was waved off after a replay. "You can play the ideal game and still not win, but at least you give your chance to win". Having done that in Game 1, the Caps know what to expect tonight in Game 2. Well, folks, that's why they play the games.

"We were six men by a mile, so I don't think anyone was too fired up with the goal", said Lightning forward Steven Stamkos. Andrei Vasilevskiy has given up 26 goals on 326 shots faced and Louis Domingue has allowed zero goals on seven shots.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are not messing around. By the end of 40 minutes, the Caps were up 4-0.
"We tried to take it to them in their building and carry that momentum throughout the game". The Capitals have been very solid on the road in the postseason, but the Bolts have been a very good 34-14 here at home for the year, including 5-2 in the postseason.
