Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Washington Capitals - 5/13/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Washington Capitals - 5/13/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Lightning coach Jon Cooper said earlier in the week the Lightning can not make a habit of losing Game 1 of the series. We'll look to do that tomorrow. "He's a good player, and he's been generally a pretty good player in the playoffs, so I'm hoping past experience and playoff excitement will push him forward when he gets the call".

"One thing to remember is that this isn't the NCAA basketball tournament", said Cooper. "They were that close to being where they are now if some breaks here and there had have gone their way". Lars Eller's power play goal gave the Caps the 4-0 lead they would take into the third period before Tampa Bay answered with a pair of lamp-lighters in the final period. They have a really good team and they've always had a good team. But, Kucherov was the sixth man on the ice, which was evident from the moment he touched the puck.

The Caps jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period and stretched that advantage to 4-0 before the midway mark of the middle frame, showing that thy had put their exhilarating second-round series win over Pittsburgh in the proper place, behind them.

The Lightning are in the Conference final for the third time in four years but it didn't look like it Friday as they pulled starting goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy at the end of the second period with the score 4-0. "I've obviously played with him for a while now". "Nicky is one of those guys that you can throw him in and he's not going to miss a beat". I'm expecting a better peformance from the Lightning here and wouldn't be shocked if they get the victory. It finished the period with just two.

The Washington right winger had a pair of assists in a 4-2 Game One win at Tampa Bay, and has six points (2 G, 4 A) in the past five games.

The days of Washington trying to outscore its opponents by playing a firebrand style of pond hockey appear to be over.

Capitals head coach Barry Trotz said he's optimistic that Nicklas Backstrom (hand) will play in the Eastern Conference Final at some point. But the chance was created by Ovechkin, who shot a one-timer that deflected over to T.J. Oshie and then to Eller.

Washington has talent on its power play, outside of Ovechkin. And it doesn't feel good when you take that shot off the foot or a bad spot. Backstrom is working out on Saturday, but he isn't hitting the ice. Sergachev explained the lack of Russian defensemen in the NHL stems from coaches in Russia not willing to train defensemen in a forward-centric hockey culture, which has resulted in many young players leaving Russia for the Canadian Junior Hockey League, where they can improve their two-way skills before, hopefully, landing with an NHL team.

And as has been the case throughout the postseason, the Capitals' power play has been on fire - scoring in 11 of their 13 games.
