Capitals Have Home-Ice Disadvantage For Game 4 Vs. Lightning

Capitals Have Home-Ice Disadvantage For Game 4 Vs. Lightning

As illustrated in this latest report, Holtby won't dwell too much on his shortcomings from Game 3, when he coughed up four goals on 23 shots to snap a three-game win streak dating back to the second-round playoff series against Pittsburgh. Tampa is 4-1 in road playoff games this year. Backstrom has missed the last four games due to a hand injury.

They possessed the puck, making the Capitals chase the game rather than chasing it themselves, thanks to some tactical adjustments and line scrambling. The return is a significant boost for Washington, which went up 2-0 in the series before dropping Game 3 and for the first time looking like his absence was having an effect. Their Game 3 performance was... less impressive.

Fourth match of the series will be played on may 18 on the ice in Washington. "I don't really think I was myself" after the play, Wilson said Thursday, adding that he expected he would be for Game 4.

"They just keep getting deeper", Cooper said. "You have Kuch (Nikita Kucherov) on the other side of him doing the same thing for the most part so it is definitely a threat our power play possess".

In Game 3 against Washington, they led the way again.

Stamkos said he felt like the team had a bit of a chip on its shoulder after last season's disappointing finish and believed the team had put itself in position for playoff success this year. "When Nicky's ready to go, he's ready to go", Trotz said.




The Capitals cut the lead to 3-1 on a Brett Connolly goal that ignited the home crowd.

"We checked. That was it", said Cooper, on the differences between the first two games and Game 3. 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. During the regular season, he tallied 21 goals and 29 assists in 81 regular season games. "He's one of our key leaders and one of our best players". "Just a little simpler".

The 1995 series (New Jersey-Philadelphia) and the 2004 series (Calgary-San Jose) both had the road team win the first five games before the home team closed it out in Game 6.

As you'd expect, with Washington up 2-1 and hosting Game 4, they are the clear favorites, according to our numbers, with a 66.4% chance to win the series. We all know it's going to be a tough series. The average Tampa Bay team over the last three years has held 52 per cent of the shots.

"I think we always feel like we owe him", defenseman Anton Stralman said.
