Statistically Speaking: Stars lift Lightning in must-win game

Qatar Is Paying Money to Keep the DC Metro Open Later for Capitals Fans...Huh? Lightning lead Capitals 4-1 in 3rd
Jay Anderson | 17 May, 2018, 02:05

Vasilevskiy had 36 saves in the 4-2 win, stymieing the Capitals offensive power from the first two games and advancing the series to 2-1 to ensure the Lightning will return home at least one more time.

Steve Stamkos' one-time blast from the left circle put the Lightning ahead at 13:53 of the first. "Another big effort for him tonight, and you could see we all followed suit". "But we can't do it for one night and be satisfied".

Victor Hedman figured all the Tampa Bay Lightning needed to get back on track was a shift in momentum.

The Capitals score with just 3:02 remaining in the game.

A Braden Holtby tripping penalty on Yanni Gourde led to a Tampa Bay power play at 12:57 in the first period.

Hedman had the primary assist on power-play goals by Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov and was a key part of three big penalty kills.

Now for the good news: The Capitals still have a 2-1 lead.

As Cooper had said of Games 1 and 2: "It's 2-on-1 after 2-on-1".

Cooper pointed to Game 4 against the Boston Bruins in the conference semifinals, when Kucherov and Stamkos scored in a game that basically put that series out of reach.




Barry Trotz after Game 3.

"It doesn't matter who scores, as long as we win", said Stamkos.

They have yet to lose with Backstrom out, went 8-2 without Burakovsky and were 2-1 against the Penguins without both Wilson and Burakovsky. Brayden Point of the Lightning deflated those fans 5 minutes, 32 seconds later with his sixth goal of the playoffs.

The Saudi-led coalition began its economic and diplomatic boycott of Qatar on June 5 after the country's Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, allegedly praised Iran, criticized President Trump and threatened to withdraw Qatari ambassadors from several Arab states. We talked about this. That was big for us. Pointer getting that fourth one kind of popped the balloon.

"For whatever reason, at this time of the year there are more distractions than in the regular season, for sure".

Exelon and Pepco combined to provide service after Game 3 on Tuesday, which the Caps lost 4-2.

That's right. According to Bovada's latest odds for the 2017-18 Stanley Cup Final, the Capitals are the best bet of those left. Vasilevskiy was on his game, but so was the team in front of him. "He played great, and I think he liked the fact that we played a good team game and had good structure and made his life a little bit easier". "You've got to check in this league".

"We knew we had to come in here and win hockey games", Hedman says. "There's no secret. We've dug ourselves a hole here, but by no means is it something that we can't overcome".

"We've thought about different things, but for me and our staff, we don't feel it's a personnel issue with how things are going", Cooper said. "He's our best player". And that gives him confidence that we're on.
