It’s an Eastern Conference showdown on Tuesday night at Capital One Arena. The Tampa Bay Lightning make the trip to take on the Washington Capitals.
These teams have faced off twice so far this year, with the home team winning each of the games.
Tampa Bay Lightning
It has been a really nice season so far this year, for the Lightning but they come into this game struggling a bit having lost three of the last four games. One of those losses was against the Buffalo Sabres, a team that has been terrible all year.
For the Lightning their strength all year has been in the offensive zone. They are currently averaging 3.5 goals per game and the number doesn’t change much on the road only going down to 3.44.
On the other side of this match up is the Washington Capitals who have also struggled coming into this game having lsot three of the last four.
In their last game they got embarrassed by a Blackhawks team who hasn’t been very good this season.
They let the Blackhawks light the lamp early and often on the way to seven gaols given up. If they want to win this game the defense is going to need to be better.
