The Eastern Conference Finals kick off on Friday night At Amalie Arena. The Washington Capitals make the trip to Tampa Bay to take on the Lightning.
The Lightning have won two of the three games played between the two teams.
The Washington Capitals have finally gotten the monkey off their back reaching the Eastern Conference Finals, but they can’t be satisfied with that.
The Capitals won only one of the previous matchups between the two teams this year, and when they struggled it was the defense that let them down.
If they want to win this game the defense needs to find a way to be better. If they aren’t better though this could end up being a long series for them.
Tampa Bay Lightning
On the other side of this matchup is the Tampa Bay Lightning who didn’t have much problems getting by the Boston Bruins to reach this spot.
After losing the first game of the series, they dominated each of the last four games on the way to a series win in five games.
For the Lightning their strength is scoring and that needs to be the case again in this game. They need to get out to the fast start and run up the score.
If they can get a few early goals they can get the Capitals on their heels.
