Tampa Bay Lightning look to even series vs. Washington Capitals

Tampa Bay Lightning look to even series vs. Washington Capitals

Instead, with the Tampa Bay Lightning star mired in a seven-week slump that began on March 6 and extended all the way into the second round of the playoffs, the focus turned to how Brayden Point had emerged as one of the best young players in the National Hockey League, how Nikita Kucherov had added a physical dimension to his game, and how everyone from J.T. Miller to Yanni Gourde was providing the secondary offence needed to win the Stanley Cup.

The Capitals will look to bounce back from Tuesday's 4-2 loss and win their third game of the series Thursday night.

The Lightning are 4-0 in their last four road games.

Nicklas Backstrom returned to the Capitals' lineup for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference final against the Tampa Bay Lightning. They know what to expect from the Capitals.

The slick Swede has missed the past four games with a hand injury that didn't prevent him from signing a broom handed to him by Capitals fans anticipating a sweep of the Tampa Bay Lightning prior to Game 3. After winning the first two games in Tampa, the Capitals dropped Game 3.

Trotz notices a difference in his players" attitude on home ice, saying: "It's "us against the world' when were on the road".

That's not to say that Tampa Bay can't erase a 2-1 series deficit. "No one expected 4-0, right?"

After two no-shows in the first two games on home ice, the Lightning found their groove and got it together like they needed to in order to make this a series. The team is 6-3 in those games.

- Their power play paid off again.

"We checked. That was it", said Cooper, on the differences between the first two games and Game 3.

"Today was one of those games you feed pucks to Kuch and Stammer, pucks are going to go in", Hedman said.

"When they go in the net, they're all nice", he said. He is projected to start the game alongside Chandler Stephenson and Brett Connolly. May. If they aren't moving the needle against Washington's best players, it's going to be the biggest reason why the Lightning don't rally back and claim the East. Pointer getting that fourth one kind of popped the balloon.

The teams faced off in Game 4 on Thursday night.

Did the Lightning feel they owed their goalie one, after hanging him out to dry for 10 goals in the first two games? "They bring you energy in good ways, but at the same time, you need to stay realistic and play your game".

"We had to check tonight, and it helped it go in our favor". "Hes our leader. We all love him".

This was how it should be for Tampa Bay.
