NHL: Tampa Bay cut the lead in the series against Washington

Hedman, Lightning beat Caps to cut East final deficit to 2-1

With Stamkos' ability to score at will (27 goals and 86 points this season), he is one of two key playmakers for Tampa Bay in game two. If he's going to be in the lineup, it's going to give us more room to create with the lines and the team's going to be happy. "He can pass the puck and hes been here for a long time and hes a world-class player".

Backstrom is the Capitals second-longest-tenured player behind Ovechkin, and theyre in the conference finals for the first time in their 10th playoff appearance.

With the Washington Capitals leading the series 2-1, the Tampa Bay Lightning are in a do-or-die game.

The center missed the previous four games with a right-hand injury. Then a year ago, the knee injury. "I think we had a little chip on our shoulder coming in and we've put ourselves in a position to do that again this year".

Well, not just do well.

- The Lightning's stars finally shone. That expectation grew at the trade deadline when the team acquired Miller and defenceman Ryan McDonagh at the trade deadline. They know what to expect from the Capitals.

Shots aren't much better and reemphasize the point about being outplayed. "When you need a big play, a big performance, he's usually one of the guys that will step up".

For the first half of the season, Stamkos and had made a compelling argument that the Hart Trophy should be shared this year.

He had another scare in the third period of Game 3 in Washington after he took a slap shot off his leg.

But as the year wore on and the Lightning qualified for the playoffs with nearly a month remaining in the season, Stamkos' production began to fade. They combined for three goals and four assists. Will that change tonight in Game 4 as Washington is the small home favorite? Washington outscored Tampa, 7-1, at even strength in the first two games, so the Lightning must play like they did in Game 3 to have a good chance the rest of the way. With this game taking place at the Capital One Arena, the team is looking to have the crowd rally behind them for a 3-1 victory.

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.

"We checked. That was it", said Cooper, on the differences between the first two games and Game 3. "That says a lot right there". Their scoring chances dropped by nine in Game 3, and too many times, Washington opted for more low-danger chances.

"It doesn't matter how you defend them, they're going to find a way", Cooper said not only of Stamkos' goal, but Kucherov's similar one-timer.

"He wants to be part of the success, and he's our best centre", captain Alex Ovechkin said. Their only loss was game three of the New Jersey series.

"Obviously (he has) got great hands and makes some nice plays", Lightning defenseman and fellow Swede Victor Hedman said. The big thing is to stay out of the box.
