Capitals at Lightning 5/19/18 - NHL Picks & Predictions

The 4th game of the Lightning and Capitals series was one of those that was the most exciting games that you could have caught if you are an NHL fan. The game was one that faced the Lightning as a must win almost type of situation as they were facing a potential 3-1 series trailing, but instead the Lightning were able to pull the series even and were even able to pull out the win rather easily when they were facing the threat of being on the brink of elimination to make this into a 3 game series now. One thing the Lightning did manage to do was figure out how to crack the Holtby net minding. This was a challenge, but gauging by the wins the Lightning had this could be a good thing. Braden Holtby in the game against the Lightning was able to save 16 shots that were sent his way, but the downside is he only faced 19 shots and did no perform well at all.

The Lightning definitely need to help Andrei Vasilevskiy out some more. He faced a total of 38 shots in the game and turned almost all of them away. The best part is even with the extra attacker on the ice the Lightning were able to turn the Capitals away and even scored an empty netter with a second left.

The Lightning are going to have a major challenge here as the Capitals are a team that has managed to snap off a ton of shots at Vailevskiy in the series so far. The Lightning offense, though, has not been doing as well, but have managed to score and win some of the matches. Look for the Lightning to win this game, but just barely again 3-2.
