Tampa Bay Lighting Hope To Bounce Back in Game 3

Tampa Bay Lighting Hope To Bounce Back in Game 3

He was pulled with more than three minutes remaining as the Capitals were desperate to create more offense.

Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom was not in the lineup for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, missing his fourth straight game with a right hand injury.

The Capitals strike back with 9:29 left in the 2nd.

Hedman was dominant all over as Tampa Bay looked like an entirely different team from the one that lost the first two games of the series at home. Before that, Steven Stamkos opened scoring for the Lightning late in the first period after Braden Holtby was called for tripping. 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. Tampa, meanwhile, improved to 4-1 away from AMALIE Arena. The Capitals captain is second in goals scored behind Winnipeg's Mark Scheifele (12).

After Tampa Bay scored the game's first three goals, Connolly tallied for the Capitalsmidway through the second period.

Iraq PM Congratulates Sadr on Election Win, Suggests Need for Recount
Political sources told AFP news agency on Tuesday that Tehran was already pushing meetings among his Shia rivals to seek a way to head off Sadr.

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.

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

The Bruins scored 13 goals in five games against the Lightning in five games of the Eastern Conference Second Round, with seven at even strength and five on the power play.

So far, the Stamkos we're seeing tonight - rather than the one of the previous two games - appears to be who he really is. "Not good enough for power play, but we will be better for sure".
