Caps' Backstrom (hand) misses Game 3

The Lightning have been unsafe on the road throughout the playoffs posting a 4-1 record, while the Capitals have struggled at home losing 4 of their seven home games.

He pointed to Game 4 against the Boston Bruins in the semifinals, when Kucherov and Stamkos scored in a game that basically put the series out of reach. When you have a really good team like they do across the way, if you're going to give them open ice to make their plays that team will kill you and they did it for two games. "We've got some big threats on the power play that can shoot the puck, and that was on display today". But Tuesday was a different story.

NOTES: C Lars Eller took three of Washington's six penalties. Before that, Steven Stamkos opened scoring for the Lightning late in the first period after Braden Holtby was called for tripping.

It wasn't ideal, but it was a more complete effort from Tampa Bay, which jumped out to a 3-0 lead before Brett Connolly answered for Washington in the second.

The final out of the game came four hours and 32 minutes after the opening pitch at 8:08 p.m., well after the last trains of the day had left the nearest Metro station. "It's how we're playing and our effort, our game plan".

In the first two games of the series, the Capitals' dominance appeared in the score sheet not in special teams, but in even-strength goals.

The Bolts get a power play.

Now, the series shifts to Capital One Arena, where Washington is just 3-3 this postseason. Brett Connolly and Evgeny Kuznetsov add goals for the Capitals in a losing cause. Less than two minutes later, Victor Hedman made it 3-0 Lightning. The goals also extended the Lightning's consecutive games with a power-play goal streak to eight.

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