  • Lightning Lean on Their Stars to Strike Back Against the Capitals

The Lightning power play went 2-for-5 in Game 3 and is 5-for-12 (41.7 percent) during the conference final. "We got ourselves back in the series by playing a lot more of a structured game and we're confident we can do that again". "We will be better next game".

Vasilevskiy was on top of his game as the Capitals put 38 shots on net. The Lightning were the better team from the high slot, which makes sense given they want guys like Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov shooting, and that's where they set up. "I know when we go on the road, I think maybe we feel a bit more relaxed, and when we do make mistakes, maybe we don't let the groaning affect us or whatnot".

The simplest fix for the Capitals is to cut down on the penalties they're taking.

This is the fifth time since conference finals started in 1982 that the first three games were all won by the road team, according to STATS, Inc.

The US imposed sanctions against the leader of "Hezbollah" Sheikh Nasrallah
Specifically, OFAC, together with Gulf partners, designated Hasan Nasrallah, the Secretary General of Hezbollah. In addition, the sanctions reject the "false distinction" between the group's political and military wings.


Unsurprisingly, it's all about pre-shot movement.

In Game 3 that changed and the Lighting tightened up defensively in a big way, forcing almost 73 per cent of the Capitals' attempted passes to the slot to fail.

With a win, the Lightning can regain the home-ice advantage - or disadvantage, as the visiting team has won the first three games - before the teams travel to Tampa Bay for Saturday's Game 5. Brayden Point scored the fourth Tampa Bay goal, and goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy made 36 saves. But on offence, their regular season star stood tall.

Stamkos, who leads the playoffs with five power-play goals and 11 power-play points, has scored a power-play goal in each of the three games against Washington, each on a one-timer from the left circle.

On the other side of the equation, it's extremely important for the Capitals to shut down this plan of attack if they want to maintain control.
