How to Watch Lightning vs. Capitals Game 3

Tuesday at Capital One Arena, the Tampa Bay Lightning respond after dropping the first two games of the Eastern Conference Final on home ice. Vasilevskiy then helped the Lightning kill off a big penalty to preserve their two-goal lead.

The Lightning and Capitals played three times during the regular season with the Lightning winning two of those contests.

Game four of the best of seven series is Thursday night in Washington.

The Capitals were dominated in a 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, who are now back in this series trailing 2-1.

Less than two minutes after Kucherov's goal, Tampa Bay made it 3-0 when defenseman Victor Hedman scored off a wrist shot. Hedman now has a goal and 10 assists during his point streak.

Braden Holtby of the Washington Capitals gives up a goal. Injured C Nicklas Backstrom (right hand) took part in the Capitals' morning skate but missed his fourth consecutive game. Alex Ovechkin and Kuznetsov combined for 21 shots on goal.

Washington wasn't as a sharp as it had been on the road, where it had racked up a 7-1 record.

The expansion Vegas Golden Knights evened the Western Conference final at 1-1 Monday with a 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets.
