After dropping the opening two games of the Eastern Conference Finals at home to the Washington Capitals, the Tampa Bay Lightning needed a win on the road to avoid being pushed to the brink of elimination. The Lightning have been risky on the road throughout the playoffs posting a 4-1 record, while the Capitals have struggled at home losing 4 of their seven home games.
The Lightning rebounded to take a 2-1 lead in the first period of Game Two, but the Capitals responded with 5 unanswered goals to take a convincing 2-0 series lead.

Washington outscored Tampa Bay a combined 7-1 during 5-on-5 in Games 1 and 2. The brief flames kept getting extinguished by Tampa Bay goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy, in a 180-degree turn from the series' first two games.
In the first two games, Washington scored goals in the waning seconds of a period in each contest. Point picked up an assist on Steven Stamkos' power-play goal in the first period.

"It wasn't really fair for him the first couple and we really didn't do a good job in front of him so it was big", defenseman Anton Stralman said.
