The Capitals outshot the Lightning by a near 2:1 margin last night, but it would be the Lightning who would double up the Capitals on the score board.

Washington got on the board first, but the LIghtning got four goals from four different players en route to a 4-2 win. Dmitry Orlov made it 1-0 for the Capitals with four minutes gone in the first period. Brayden Point scored for Tampa Bay just one minute later to even it up, while Point helped Steven Stamkos take care of business on the power play just four minutes after that.

The seven game series is all knotted up at two games a piece. Game 5 takes place in Tampa on Saturday night.


The Winnipeg Jets will look to even their series with the Vegas Golden Knights tonight as Game 4 takes place at 7 PM MT / 9 PM Eastern. Vegas can take a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Jets with a win tonight.
