Cancer Patient to Attend Capitals vs. Lightning Game 3 in Between Treatments

Capitals jump out to 2-0 series lead, return home for Game 3 tonight

Even when they are on the road.

If their first two games against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Finals are any indication of what's to come, that shouldn't be much of a surprise - even considering Washington's two-decade drought of conference finals appearances. The undersized forward notched a pair of goals in the win over the Jets in Winnipeg, giving the Knights a road split ahead of Wednesday's Game 3 at home and reminding everyone of the sizable chip on their shoulder.

Many Capitals fans won't have to worry about their ride home if their game against the Lightning goes to overtime. "It's going to be pretty cool and pretty special".

Hedman was dominant all over the ice as Tampa Bay looked like an entirely different team than the one that lost the first two games of the series at home and now has a chance to tie it in Game 4 on Thursday.

Road teams that have taken a 2-0 series lead in the National Hockey League conference finals have an 18-1 series record. 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).

Victor Hedman figured all the Tampa Bay Lightning needed to get back on track was a shift in momentum. "A great player for us all year, but you got two world-class centermen in front of him".


Tampa benefited from a three-goal outburst in the second period.

So far, the Stamkos we're seeing tonight - rather than the one of the previous two games - appears to be who he really is.

"I'm put in a position to produce, and I put that pressure on myself to do it", said Hedman, who has a goal and 10 assists during an eight-game point streak. Adding linemate Evgeny Kuznetsov's career-high 12 shots on goal, the duo accounted for more than half of Washington's 38 shots. Braden Holtby made 33 saves for Washington and has stopped 52 of 56 shots in two games, winning the goaltending battle with Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Lightning coach Jon Cooper was happy to see his team score first after the Capitals opened the scoring in Games 1 and 2 to take early control. "And we did", said Stamkos, after the Lightning's 4-2 victory on Tuesday night in Washington. Capitals coach Barry Trotz said before Tuesday's game that Backstrom remains "day-to-day". "We didn't get 113 points by playing that way".

We remain scoreless with nearly six minutes played in the first period. The Bolts trail this best-of-seven series 2-1.
