Capitals' Backstrom misses 4th straight game

Capitals' Backstrom misses 4th straight game

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

Throughout the regular season, the Lightning had the best record in the Eastern Conference.

Tampa Bay Lightning head coach Jon Cooper has always had a special appreciation for Alex Ovechkin. He says the way they've played in the Conference Finals is not the way they have played at all other points throughout the season.

A side note: Home-ice advantage is a myth. They have completely dominated Tampa while on the road and have given themselves that much of a greater chance to win the series.

Judge Upholds Mueller's Authority To Prosecute Manafort For Ukraine Dealings
He has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges, none of which are directly related to work he performed for Mr Trump's campaign. None of the charges against Manafort involve crimes related to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Meanwhile, the Capitals' vaunted power play, which features Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, T.J. Oshie, Lars Eller (in Backstrom's place) and John Carlson on the top half, failed to convert on one opportunity in every period.

The score remains 4-1 in Tampa's favor with 3:41 left in the game.

Despite being down 2-0, it's still a long series and the Lightning have a chance to recover from their early deficit.

We remain scoreless with nearly six minutes played in the first period.

Washington defeated Pittsburgh in six games of the second round after losing to the Penguins in the semifinals the previous two years.

Stamkos stepped up his game with a 60% CF%, Vasilevskiy was solid, and the Lightning checked enough of the boxes elsewhere to get themselves back into the series, defeating the Capitals 4-2 in Game 3.

Cooper was asked Monday what the Bolts could do to slow down the Russian machine as the series moves to DC for Games Three and Four. Both Game 3 and Game 4 have 8 p.m. start times, meaning it'd be hard to make the train as a game got out and especially more difficult if a game went to overtime.
