Lightning lead Capitals 4-1 in 3rd

He had to be particularly good late in the game after Evgeny Kuznetsov (no surprise) found paydirt from a dirty angle for his sixth point in the series with Washington's net empty. The Capitals captain is second in goals scored behind Winnipeg's Mark Scheifele (12). He took a feed from Hedman, converting for his 10th career postseason power-play goal-a franchise record.

Washington Capitals forward Nicklas Backstrom did not play in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final against the Tampa Bay Lightning because of a hand injury.

And Vasilevskiy looked much less worn out 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.

Coach Barry Trotz said on Tuesday that Backstrom remains "day-to-day".

The Bolts get a power play.

US Sanctions Iran's Central Bank Governor, Alleges Hezbollah Ties
Treasury Department also issued economic sanctions against another top official, in addition to Seif. President Trump in April said Iran would pay a "price" if it threatens the U.S.

As PHT's James O'Brien pointed out on Tuesday, improved performances from Steven Stamkos and Victor Hedman in terms of puck possession would've been a start.

But the Capitals did not get away with that cleanly, because Michal Kempny committed a cross-check 16 seconds later and forced them into defending a 4-on-3 rather than mounting a comeback.

So far, the Stamkos we're seeing tonight - rather than the one of the previous two games - appears to be who he really is. F Alex Ovechkin had a goal and an assist in his first Eastern Conference Finals appearance. "We're going to need that to keep going".

After the Capitals jumped out to an early series lead with an impressive Game 1 victory on the road, some wondered whether it was just a fluke case of Tampa Bay being rusty after a quick second-round series against Boston. "Not good enough for power play, but we will be better for sure".
