It’s a big Eastern Conference showdown on Monday night at the Amalie Arena. The red hot Washington Capitals come to town to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Capitals have won two games in a row between the two teams and seven of the last eight.
What a start of the season it has been for the Washington Capitals who have won both games so far while scoring a total of nine goals.
The Capitals are led by Alex Ovechkin who has scored hat tricks in both of the games so far this season.
In the first game against Ottawa the defense struggled while giving up four goals and it took a shootout to decide the winner.
But in the last game against Montreal the defense stepped up big only giving up one goal.
Tampa Bay Lightning
On the other side of this match up is the Tampa Bay Lightning who have a weird start to their season. They played the Florida Panthers in each of the first two games, and they split that series.
The biggest concern going into this game is how many goals they have been giving up.
In the two games they have given up a total of eight goals, and that is going to need to be a lot better if they don’t want to get blown out in this game by the Capitals.
