The Lighting can eliminate the Capitals in this game here and that would be a blessing for the team as the Lighting would like to have a chance to rest up before meeting the winner of the Western Conference finals. However, the Capitals are definitely going to be sending everything they can out after the Lightning as the team has been really been playing some difficult games and the Capitals have really been battling back and should be able to bring the challenge back to Washington.
The best part is the Capitals in the empty net before the loss on Saturday night ended up putting up a fight that seen them barely lose the game. If it was not for the stunning goal play from Tampa the Capitals would have easily tied the game and brought it into overtime.
The Capitals seen Braden Holtby play a great game in the 5th installment of the series and that was a game that he did allow 3 goals in, but he did manage to turn away 19 shots that were sent his way as well.
The Lightning relied on Vasilevskiy to do most of the goal keeping the entire playoff series. It was a good thing for the Lightning they had him in the net this past game as he managed to save 28 out of the 30 shots that were sent his way.
