Stamkos, lightning in Game 3 against major cities



TAMPA – What about the Tampa Bay Lightning?

"Good Check Time", Captain Steven Stamkos said.

Thus is he right.

Prepare for the situation when they lost 2-0 to Washington Capitals in the Eastern Conference final after losing both games at home with a combined score of 10: 4, including 6: 2 in the Amalie Arena on Sunday

They were not preparing for the turnovers they had made, they fell into the verdict that had fueled the main city capitals game and scored against goals. They did not believe that their speed and pre-fight could be neutralized by Washington as they were both.

No, they were not prepared, not after they had dominated the Boston Bruins in the second round and in New Jersey the first round, each series won in five games.

But the reality has occurred for the Lightning. They are deep.

Teams that dropped back 2-0 in the 1975/15 Final have lost Serie 39 41 times , The Lightning have won a series, having fallen 2-0 once in their history, by chance against the capitals, but that was 15 years ago and in the first round.

Game 3 is in Washington on Tuesday (8 pm ET; NBCSN, CBC, SN, TVAS). It's as close as possible to a victory the Lightning have suffered since game 7 of the 2016 Conference Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

You have lost that.

"Let's see who we really are," Stamkos said. "We did not really have to deal with [adversity] in the playoffs so far, now we are, so we'll see what kind of team we are."

The Lightning still believes that they are the team that has won four against the Bruins after 6-2 in Game 1.

This team was almost always puck at first, the Bruins fast on every corner, aggressive and fast on the pre-exam. This team has not played 5-on-5 goals in the last three games of the series after giving away six games in their first two games. This team looked unstoppable.

The Lightning in this series, the same staff and all, have already admitted seven 5-on-5 goals in two games. You have given up many opportunities for a quick break. They did not get a good goalkeeper game. Andrei Vasilevskiy scored 10 goals with 62 shots in five sections.

They were made to look out of the game by the capitals that are definitely on the court.

"We have to have some urgency and our despair must rise," said Lightning defensman Ryan McDonagh . "They look like the faster team in almost every series, sharper in their games and make no mistakes, do not make as many mistakes as we do, they let us pay."

And Tampa Bay pays at certain times.

The Lightning have allowed two power play goals in the last 10 seconds of a period, Alex Ovechkin at 19:54 of the first game period 1 and Evgeny Kuznetsov at 19:57 second period in Game 2. Each time, the capitals had a two-goal lead.

"The big deal is that this group has proven we can play the right way as we need it to give us the chance to win a game, "said McDonagh. "We have to rely on that and really look in the mirror and look each other in the locker room and find a way to raise our game both defensively and offensively."

The Lightning aren & # 39; s That's almost enough to pay for the capitals.

Example: JT Miller had the puck on his stick deep in the offensive zone during a 4-on-3 rush with the Capitals changing early in the second period on Sunday. He did not shoot. He did not go. He turned it around and the capitals went on 2-on-1 hurry.

Devante Smith-Pelly met to tie the game at 2-2 with 17:10.

"That's where the game started," said Jon Cooper. "We were 2-1 and it ended 2-2. If you do something with this hurry, it's 3-1, who knows where the game is going after that's how it has changed."

The capitals were 4-2 at the end of the second half at goals at 18:58 of Lars Eller who was open in the penalty area as defender Anton Stralman lost a cross and back The net fell, and Kuznetsov at the power game, a shot from the corner that gave McDonagh's joystick.

"We have so much more in us and for some reason we can not get it out," said Stralman. "They are a good team, they play great, they play a structured game and they bring it to us, we just are not there, especially defensively, they do not win any playoff games that score six goals."

You do not win games if you play like the Lightning vs. Washington.

"It's just a group we're not in [making plays]," Cooper said. "If there is one thing, I can sit here and say about these two games, we played hesitantly and a bit slow, we did not get 113 points by playing that way, we did not win the first two rounds that kind of thing. Those first two games, that's how we played. "

What now?

"We can not sit here and feel sorry for ourselves now," Stamkos said. "We have to go to their skating rink and find a way to win a hockey game."
