Qatar opens coffers to help Capitals fans get home

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

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

Then, trailing 4-1 in the third period, Washington was denied on a power play that seemed to douse its hopes. Tampa is 3-1 on the road during the playoffs this year.

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.

Before Sunday night, the Lightning had won Game 2 of a series five consecutive times after losing Game 1.

The Capitals strike back with 9:29 left in the 2nd. 3-1, in favor of the Lightning. But after getting rolling Tuesday with the pair of power-play goals, the Lightning scored twice more at 5-on-5.

The Caps have jumped out to a 2-0 series lead after a 6-2 victory on Sunday in Tampa.

And another Lightning goal!


Tampa Bay won for the first time in the series and will try to pull even in Game 4, which is set for Thursday night in Washington. They sustained a streak of more than 20 kills in a row that spanned parts of the first two rounds, and their power-play success rate of 32.6 percent entering Tuesday was second-best among all postseason teams.

Kucherov and Hedman scored within a two-minute span early in the second period.

It wasn't flawless, but it was a more complete effort from Tampa Bay, which jumped out to a 2-0 lead before Brett Connolly answered for Washington in the second. "It's how we're playing and our effort, our game plan".

The Washington D.C. metro normally closes at 11:30 p.m. on weeknights, which can pose problems for sports fans. Cooper knows the only way his team will be able to bounce back is if they get back to the type of play they have displayed in all but the first two games of this series.
