  • NHL Playoffs 2018: Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom, Andre Burakovsky game-time decisions for Game 1 against Lightning

Washington Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin (8) takes a shot during the third period of the first game of the NHL Stanley Cup Eastern Conference Finals between the Washington Capitals and the Tampa Bay Lightning on May 11, 2018, at Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL. Game 2 is scheduled for Sunday night in Tampa. May.

Washington now leads Tampa 1-0 in the series.

Grabbing the win for the Capitals was Braden Holtby, who stopped 19 of the 21 shots that he faced to improve to 9-3 with a 2.04 GAA and a.925 save percentage in the postseason this year and 38-33 with a 2.00 GAA and a.931 save percentage in the postseason in his career. Steven Stamkos and Ondrej Chambers gave hope "Lightning" comeback, but the visitors did not allow the escalation of the situation. Domingue stopped all seven shots he faced, including a point-blank chance by Eller with 7:32 remaining. He wired home a one-timer off a cross-ice Kucherov feed at 3:45. The goaltending change brought life to the Lightning as they picked up two goals in the third. Instead, the Capitals went on the power play and scored two seconds into their man-advantage to grab a 2-0 lead heading into the first intermission.

Tampa Bay needed nine minutes to get a shot on Holtby. "We didn't do anything we wanted to do", says Johnson, the Spokane, Wash. -born forward, who assisted on Tampa's second goal on Friday. It's 4-0 at 6:42.

The Jets won three of four games in Nashville in their second-round series, and this team is rolling.

Michal Kempny scored his first career playoff goal to put the Caps up 1-0 then a freaky sequence at the end of the first period ended with a Nikita Kucherov goal being disallowed followed by a quick goal from Alex Ovechkin with just six seconds left. On the ensuing faceoff, Ovechkin wired a quick pass from Kuznetsov past a stunned Vasilevskiy with 5.3 seconds to go in the first. Washington capitalized on two of their four power-plays. They opened the game with four unanswered goals to win 4-2 in a game where the game wasn't as close as the score suggests. To show Washington's domination, 11 others were blocked and five missed the net. Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury has been on top of his game through the first two rounds, and he has gotten plenty of support from Jonathan Marchessault, Reilly Smith and Colin Miller. The sellout streak is at 155 games.

After reaching the Eastern Conference finals for the first time in 20 years, after eliminating the Pittsburgh Penguins, their postseason tormentors, the Washington Capitals' celebration seemed like it was never going to end. He blocked a shot in Game 5 against the Pens off his right hand. He was hurt in Game 2 against Columbus.
