As an aside, Mojo is already 2-1-3 for New Jersey (Caps are gonna miss him before this season is over)...

Grubauer 3-0 against Tampa, Vasilevsky 0-3 against Caps...

From the NHL preview: Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin will attempt to become the first NHL player with a hat trick in three consecutive games when the Washington Capitals play the Tampa Bay Lightning at Amalie Arena on Monday.

Ovechkin scored three times against the Ottawa Senators on Thursday and had four goals against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

The record for goals by one player through the first three games of the season is nine, by Reg Noble of the Toronto Arenas and Joe Malone of the Montreal Canadiens in 1917-18, the first season of the NHL.

Ovechkin has one hat trick against the Lightning, a four-goal game Dec. 10, 2013. He has scored two goals in a game against the Lightning on eight other occasions.

The Lightning have allowed eight goals on 84 shots in its first two games.


game on!

15:28 left 1st, Ness in the box for a crosscheck... it's been pretty basic for both teams so far...

good kill by the PK, 10/10 on the season now...

12:34 left 1st, TV timeout.

And then a great shift by Eller/Connolly to make the Bolts ice it for the 5th (6th?) time...

8:35 left, Grubauer covers and a timeout.

Pretty methodical both ways to this point, Caps under a little pressure from 7:15 to 6:58 when they ice it... Caps get a 4 on 1 break, but Chorney turns it over... of course, TBL comes back down... no goal, but Ness in the box again for a hook...

on the PP, great pass to Stamkos for a breakaway, but juuuuust offside... killed again...

Caps come down... Bura passes rinkwide to...

Backstrom! 1-0 Caps at 3:18 left 1st!

And now Caps on the PP!
