Capitals-Lightning, 4th Ld-Writethru,717

  • Here's how the four NHL conference finalists match

The Bolts will have to repeat the script from their second-round series against the Boston Bruins, in which they lost Game 1, to draw even against the Capitals, or else this could be a surprisingly short series.

"We know how we have to play and we have to play that way for 60 minutes", Jay Beagle said.

But the energy was missing, and so was the intensity.

Instead, Capitals star Alex Ovechkin blasted a one-timer 1.3 seconds after the faceoff, a devastating dagger in a dominating 4-2 victory over the Lightning in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final. Four minutes later, another Caps power play resulted in Eller putting home a rebound of an Oshie shot after Ovechkin flubbed a one-timer.

The penalty kill allowed two of those goals.

"We used that to our advantage in the second", said Carlson, as the Capitals scored twice in the opening 6:42 of the second period to take a commanding 4-0 lead.

Anton Stralman and Ryan McDonagh - The Lightning defence tandem was under 41% possession in a game that saw Tampa Bay playing from behind for the majority of the contest, and McDonagh was on the ice for both of Washington's power play goals.

Lightning coach Jon Cooper said earlier in the week the Lightning can not make a habit of losing Game 1 of the series. Palat added his goal at 13:03, trimming Washington's lead to 4-2.

If that happened, the Stanley Cup Final would likely begin Tuesday, May 22. "But we didn't do anything to earn our breaks", Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. But the effort was too late for Tampa Bay, who felt a similar state of defeat in Game 1 of the second round. Up against a top-10 defensive club in the first round, the Columbus Blue Jackets, Washington dented twine 24 times in six games and then proceeded to beat Pittsburgh Penguins' two-time Stanley Cup-winning netminder Matt Murray 19 times across a seven-game set, making him look somewhat pedestrian in the process. The puck drops at 8:00 p.m.

The Lightning was whistled for too many men on the ice. Just look at their second goal. Right wing T.J. Oshie had a 61.76 percent even-strength CorsiFor percentage.

It was a stunning turn of events. "All four lines played very good in the first period". In the first period, the Caps outshot the Lightning 9-2.

Stamkos tallied just 3:45 into the third period to put the Lightning on the board.

Beagle and Eller scored slightly more than four minutes apart in the second period.
