Game Notes:

A good pace and physical play early set the tone for the game. The game was even but Tampa headed into the firs intermission with a 1-0 lead. They scored not long into the 2nd period to take a 2-0 lead. But, it was the Capitals who came on strong towards the end of the middle frame, getting the last eight shots of the period and scoring twice. With markers from Richard Panik and Evgeni Kuznetzov, the game was tied at two heading into the third.

The game came down to a shoot out where Tampa missed on the first attempt and TJ Oshie undressed Andrei Vasilevskiy. Tampa scored on the next round whereas Washington missed. Kucherov buried it for Tampa, which left it up to Niklas Backstrom and gets stopped. Tampa wins it via a count of 3-2.
