Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Washington Capitals - 5/13/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

It was the Capitals' first appearance in the conference final since 1998, but they - not the Lightning - looked like the team playing in their third conference final in the past four years.

But the party had to end.

Nikita Kucherov registered an assist in Friday's 4-2 loss to Washington in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final. "Obviously, there was a lot of emotions through our locker room after that series win".

"I think it's we realized we just have to play our way", the Washington captain added.

Iran Fires Rockets Into Golan Heights From Syria, Israelis Say
Jonathan Conricus, a spokesman for the Israeli military, said "any aggressions against Israel will be met with a severe response". Israeli media said Tuesday's order to prepare bomb shelters on the Golan was unprecedented during Syria's civil war.

Washington could be without one or both of Nicklas Backstrom and Andre Burakovsky, who are considered game-time decisions.

The first step to victory in the seventh minute made Michal Kempny that with the transfer of Evgeni Kuznetsov scored his debut goal in the play-offs.

"It's big", Capitals defenseman John Carlson said. "And it did tonight".

According to the team's website, Capitals fans can't wear red or anything adorned with the team's logo if their seats that are in the Lightning's Lexus Lounge. Kucherov appeared to tie the game at one when he scored on a breakaway with under 10 seconds left in the first period, but the goal was called back because the Lightning had too many men on the ice. Even in the third period, the Caps did a good job, only getting outshot 11-7 despite having a four-goal lead. The Lighting managed a meager two shots on goal in the first period and ended the first 40 minutes of the game with only 10.

They had to sit there, knowing what had just happened, knowing it was an opportunity lost for them, an opportunity gained for the Capitals, knowing that the swing might have been the difference in the game, perhaps even the series. It was a moment that could have passed by silently, the seconds running out and the game where it had been before everything started.

And though they're now down 1-0, there's zero panic in this Lightning dressing room, among this group that put together the best regular season record in the National Hockey League.

The Capitals come into this game ranked 1st in scoring during the postseason at 3.62 gpg, while also ranking 7th in shots taken (32.8 spg) and 2nd in power play conversions, converting on 32.6% of their chances.

Taking the loss in game one was Andrei Vasilevskiy, who allowed four goals on 25 shot attempts to fall to 8-3 with a 2.43 GAA and a.920 save percentage in the postseason this year and 12-8 with a 2.63 GAA and a.920 save percentage in the postseason in his career. "We didn't give them much", Ovechkin said. "Everybody was paying the price". In Game 1, it was pretty simple. They finished atop the Eastern Conference standings in the regular-season and get a chance to even the series on home ice on Sunday before the series moves to DC.
