Stay out of the box. Tampa Bay looks a little stronger on paper, but the Caps have shown an intensity this postseason that reflects growth and maturity in their game. Caps in 6, if they stick to the plaan.

The first 3:10, Lightning looked pretty good... next 1:50, all Caps from a dynamite shift (they even all got changed but still kept possession)...

good start for our guys, I think.

Glad that Kempny finally scored one.

I saw him lose his stick on the last action before the break.

Kempny in the offensive zone, the puck is lost, seconds later he's back for a strong defensive play. Looks like he's having a huge game.

Stamkos with a great move, but Niskanen holds him. Bolts to the PP.

Terrible sequence... Kucherov scores, but no goal, too many Bolts on the ice.

Before that, Niskanen out of a box gets a chance, good thing he didn't score because the Caps were offside, to me.

So it's still 1-0 Caps.

Stamkos and Kucherov bumped into Holtby both times. They'll have to stop that.

Wow, Caps, off the faceoff!!! Ovechkin!!!

2-0 Caps. What a change.

Caps looking very ready, 8:33 left 1st...

L'm watching

http://www.720pstream.me/washington-capitals-stream

which is HNiC, and has just terrific analysis of the play by play...

for example, Stamkos twice has tried to split the Niskanen-Orlov duo, the talk is how he's doing it- they're too split, he sees something elsewhere, great insights...

by the way, Niskanen to the box for grabbing Stamkos the last time... killed...

Bolts score... no goal! Too many men! :07.1 left 1st...

1-0 Caps, end 1s.... Ovechkin!! :02.9 left!!

First intermission.

Caps are really serious business this year. They want to win every game. And they have only lost one road game so far.

They're 8-2 in their last 10 games.

Now that's a momentum swing at the end of a period. Wow.

Bolts have 2 SOGs.

That was probably the worst too-many-men penalty I have ever seen. They sent 6 players, period. It was not a question of 10 feet for 2 seconds.

Caps to the PP after the break, apparently (a Bolt was looking upset).

I think the Bolts rested too much, while the Caps are just out of series where they had to play at their best.

So PP for the Caps, indeed.

4-0. Yikes.

It looks like every time a Bolt has space for a shot, Caps are not even in danger.

Good job, Holtby.

Vrana with a good wraparound attempt.

Lots of time left, yes, but Tampa has a hard task, because I don't think the Caps are done scoring tonight. So the Bolts must be ready to score 7 if they want to win this one.

Stephenson a close chance, but I'm pretty sure he was offside, anyway.

the view from the crowesnest:

Stay out of the box. Tampa Bay looks a little stronger on paper, but the Caps have shown an intensity this postseason that reflects growth and maturity in their game. Caps in 6, if they stick to the plaan.

Bolts didn't learn their lesson. They'll have another penalty to kill. And they're really not aggressive in this situation, they let the Caps play. That could hurt again.

Of the 14 NHL "experts" polled, only 2 pick the Capitals and Knights to make the SCF. Of course, those 2 have the best records in the playoffs so far. :D

It was not a bad PP for the top unit. Ovechkin's one-timer was way wide, though, it seemed.

Then the Bolts defended well against the second unit.

Great shift by Eller's line.

It doesn't look like the Bolts can come back.

4-0 end 2nd. I, too, think Tampa Bay will run away to live to fight another day (Sunday, in fact).

Second intermission. 4-0 Caps.

I'll stop here. Not too worried for them at this point.

Have a great third period, Roger! Good night.

Just noticed on the replay of Ovechkin's goal, it went in twice before the Bolts could do anything about it.

HNiC showed a Trotz interview from before the game, he said the equivalent of you haven't been here before, enjoy the moment.

TJ just now says everyone just playing their game.

3rd on... Domingue innet...

lost my feed, come back to 4-1 with 15:11 left reg... feed getting choppy for a while...

Caps on the PP (TB goal was PP, they say Stamkos)... over, 1 SOG...

Bolts on the PP- Chiasson punched a guy at the bench. Good for him- didn't see why he punched the guy, but these Caps just aren't taking from anyone this time. Not for a second.

I like it.

Killed it off, Holtby big save... now Holtby big again a few times...

Caps are just dominating again, Eller almost gets one on a great pass from Stephenson...

oops. 4-2. 6:52 left... goalie out at about 2:00...

icing Caps at :10.1, juuuuust missed the EN... Bolts almost at :02...

final.

Eller has already said they haven't seen the best of the Bolts yet, and he's right.

Sunday should be a real humdinger.
