Lightning avenge home losses with Game 3 win at Capitals

Lightning avenge home losses with Game 3 win at Capitals

The Washington Capitals are only two games away from a Stanley Cup Finals appearance.

National Hockey League teams taking a 2-0 lead in a best of seven series go on to win the series 89 percent of the time.

The Lightning would still like to cut down on the quality chances Vasilevskiy has to stop in Game 4 on Thursday and beyond, like the one Brett Connolly scored on after a turnover by Ondrej Palat.

Less than two minutes after Kucherov's goal, Tampa Bay made it 3-0 when defenseman Victor Hedman scored off a wrist shot.

Braden Holtby of the Washington Capitals gives up a goal. This time, the Lightning prevented the momentum swings.

W&T Offshore, Inc. (WTI) Anticipated to Announce Revenue of $0.13 Per Share
There are countless types of simple moving averages, but the most important ones are three, including SMA20, SMA50, and SMA200. Meanwhile, shares of the company were making trade 9.31% away from the 20-days SMA and 23.43% away from the 200-days SMA.

Then in the second period, the Lightning added another power play goal - with Nikita Kucherov blasting a shot past Holtby just 16 seconds into the penalty.

Coach Barry Trotz said on Tuesday that Backstrom remains "day-to-day".

Backstrom's 13 points (three goals, 10 assists) in the Stanley Cup Playoffs are fourth on the Capitals behind Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov, who are tied for the lead with 19 points, and John Carlson (14).

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. That's probably because, to put it simply, the Golden Knights have looked the most like this year's team of destiny, rallying behind Marc-Andre Fleury and incredible offensive balance to defy the forecasts that maybe had them as a competent, not contending, team in their first year of existence.
