It was Kempny's first goal of the postseason.

But the party had to end.

Lightning C Brayden Point was asked Saturday if it is easier move forward after a loss when the team played poorly than a game where it played well. "Obviously, there was a lot of emotions through our locker room after that series win".

The Capitals played perhaps their best defensive game of the playoffs. "We're gonna keep going here". "And it did tonight". It's 4-1 Capitals 3:45 into the third period.

The Lightning had a highlight-reel goal disallowed with seven seconds left in the first that would have tied the game.

"We were six men by a mile, so I don't think anyone was too fired up with the goal", said Lightning forward Steven Stamkos.


The Washington Capitals have a chance to steal another road game and take a commanding 2-0 series lead before heading back home for game three.

"It's tough, especially when there is not much time left in the period". Everything is going the Capitals' way so far.

There were questions concerning which Capitals team the Lightning would face: one suffering an emotional letdown after finally beating the Penguins to the conference final or one who would use the energy from slaying that playoff dragon to continue its quest for the first Stanley Cup in franchise history.

"It's a little bit of a chess match", Carlson said.

Washington now leads Tampa 1-0 in the series.

The Capitals are 5-1 in their last 6 Conference Finals games, 2-5 in their last 7 Sunday games and 21-7 in their last 28 overall. Backstrom is considered doubtful after he sat out Monday's Game 6 in the second round and hasn't practiced since.


And though they're now down 1-0, there's zero panic in this Lightning dressing room, among this group that put together the best regular season record in the National Hockey League. Four minutes later, another Caps power play resulted in Eller putting home a rebound of an Oshie shot after Ovechkin flubbed a one-timer. "Everybody was paying the price". "So we just gotta get back to playing our game". "We were just a step behind on our reads today". Basically, the same reasons I had Washington on Friday night. They earned their breaks.

"We know how we have to play and we have to play that way for 60 minutes", Jay Beagle said.

If the Western Conference series goes the maximum seven games, that series would end Thursday, May 24. "When you do this, you give yourself zero chance to win". Not so against the Capitals.

The Washington Capitals came out strong in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final.

"We've relied on our depth all season, we've relied on our experience all season", Stamkos says. They outscored us. They out-everythinged us.
