Capitals' Backstrom misses 4th straight game

Capitals' Backstrom misses 4th straight game

"It's gut check time", Stamkos told the media ahead of Game 3.

According to the Washington Post, Qatar will pony up $100,000 of sweet cheddar so that our capital's subway system will be open one hour later than normal after the Washington Capitals' playoff game tonight in the Stanley Cup Eastern Conference Finals.

This was the first game the Capitals have lost since Nicklas Backstrom left Game 5 against Pittsburgh with an upper-body injury.

Stamkos stepped up his game with a 60% CF%, Vasilevskiy was solid, and the Lightning checked enough of the boxes elsewhere to get themselves back into the series, defeating the Capitals 4-2 in Game 3.

And Vasilevskiy looked much less worn out than he did in the first two games, where he allowed 10 goals in five periods of play and never eclipsed a.850 save percentage. Thank Kucherov on the power play for that one!

Cooper was asked Monday what the Bolts could do to slow down the Russian machine as the series moves to DC for Games Three and Four. Tampa, meanwhile, improved to 4-1 away from AMALIE Arena. They now have to travel to Washington down 2-0 with the Capitals playing some of their best hockey.

Meanwhile, the Capitals' vaunted power play, which features Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, T.J. Oshie, Lars Eller (in Backstrom's place) and John Carlson on the top half, failed to convert on one opportunity in every period.

The Bruins scored 13 goals in five games against the Lightning in five games of the Eastern Conference Second Round, with seven at even strength and five on the power play. "They scored, we didn't and that's on us", Kuznetsov said.

Lightning center Steven Stamkos says there's nothing they can do about the first two games now and they just need to find a way to turn it around.
