Ovechkin's goal marked a turning point that Washington ran away with, but it was also an impressive feat.

The Lightning are trying to create the vibe Hockey Bay hasn't seen since winning the Cup in 2004. Alex Ovechkin scored off the ensuing faceoff to give his team a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes.

"We had a really good start".

On Ovechkin's goal, center Alex Killorn said they knew the play, but failed to execute their attempt to stop it. Killorn was supposed to block the shot.

"We were six men by a mile, so I don't think anyone was too fired up about the goal". "Everybody was all in, and everybody was paying the price".

Steven Stamkos had a chance to at an early goal when he broke in alone on Holtby, but his chance at a quality shot ended when he was hooked by Matt Niskanen.

But Trotz said he is "optimistic" that Backstrom will play in the series, which Washington leads after its 4-2 victory in Game 1 on Friday night. However, the goal was waved off after a replay. The Lightning get the game's first power play with 2:26 to go in the first.

Instead of it being a tie game, the Capitals were given a power play and made the most of the opportunity, with Ovechkin blasting in a one-timer with just six seconds left in the period.

Capitals: D John Carlson drew an assists on the first goal, tying the franchise mark for playoff points by a defenseman with 12. He wired home a one-timer off a cross-ice Kucherov feed at 3:45. That is what happened against the Bruins, when the Lightning could not match Boston's intensity in a 6-2 loss. The Lightning had two shots on goal, with only one in the first 15 minutes.

The Jets won three of four games in Nashville in their second-round series, and this team is rolling.

The Jets became the fourth and final team to reach the third round when they beat the defending Western Conference-champion Predators on the road in Game 7 on Thursday night. The Lighting should be the favorite here based on it nearly being a must-win, and the fact they're the deeper, better team from top to bottom. "It doesn't matter which position we are, what round it is". We've been in this situation before, unfortunately. "We have to do the same here". That was his ninth goal of this postseason, to go along with seven assists. The Capitals didn't allow them space to move or time to think.

Tampa Bay finally figured out Holtby in the third period when Kucherov set up a one-timer for Steven Stamkos on the power play.

The Capitals, sans their elite injured center Nicklas Backstrom, tilted the ice in the first two frames. The Caps have outscored opponents 14-3 in the opening period this postseason.
