Wednesday night’s game was the second time the Caps have faced the Bolts in March, with one game remaining against them on March 30. The Lightning pulled off a win in the first meeting last Saturday, and bested the Caps again Wednesday 5-4, their second win in five days over the Caps.
Against an ailing Devils team, the Washington Capitals were expected to come out on top in this one. They did just that and remained hot with a 3-0 win over New Jersey Friday.
Despite not playing in over a week, the Caps seemed like a completely refreshed team in the first period against the Calgary Flames. Washington would go on to trade goals — and punches — with the Flames, but ultimately came out ahead.
The Capitals went from sudden death to instant life after Lars Eller’s game-winning goal at the nine-minute mark of double overtime secured a 3-2 win in Game 3 in Columbus. The Blue Jackets now lead the series 2-games-to-1.
