Special teams failures took Capitals' teeth away in Game 3

Share

The Tampa Bay Lightning said after Game 2 that the Washington Capitals had robbed them of their identity, after two uncharacteristic defeats on home ice to open the Eastern Conference Final.

Vasilevskiy had never lost three straight playoff games, and he didn't start a new trend on Tuesday, steering aside 35-of-37 shots he faced.

After finishing third in the regular season (23.9 percent) behind the Pittsburgh Penguins (26.2) and Toronto Maple Leafs (25.0), they are 15-for-50 (30.0) on the power play in 13 playoff games, third behind the Boston Bruins (36.4) and Capitals (30.8). Brayden Point of the Lightning deflated them 5 minutes and 32 seconds later with his sixth goal of the playoffs.

The previous record for the highest number of points was held by Chelsea (95pts) set in 2004-05 by Mourinho's title-winning team. Ancelotti's 2009/2010 title winners as City's free-scoring season took them to 106 at an average of almost 2.8 a game.

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.

"Those guys have delivered when we've needed them", said Lightning coach Jon Cooper.

But Tampa restored the three-goal lead when Point somehow found a puck in a scrum in front the Washington goal and whacked it through the legs of Stephenson to beat Holtby.

Salah's stellar season compared to Suarez, Shearer & Ronaldo
The Welsh side have seen their seven-year stay in the Premier League end after a 2-1 loss to Stoke on the last day of the season. Mohamed Salah opened the scoring with his 32nd of the campaign - the most by a player in a 38-game Premier League season.

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. He's been dominant on the power play, collecting four PPGs and nine power-play points.

According to Scott Allen and Matt Bonesteel of the Washington Post: "On Tuesday, [D.C. Council member Jack] Evans told the Washington Post that the tiny, wealthy nation of Qatar has agreed to pay the $100,000 fee to keep [the] Metro open until 12:30 a.m. on Thursday". "We talked about this, you've got to make them chase the game". Washington outscored Tampa Bay a combined 7-1 during 5-on-5 in Games 1 and 2.

Oh knows Washington has used an early offensive burst to take command in each of the first two meetings.

And Vasilevskiy looked much less tired 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. "We can't describe how good he is out there".
