Washington left wing Alex Ovechkin is excited about his team's series lead but knows they still have a long way to go before clinching a spot in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Keeping them scoreless was never more crucial than in the first 10 minutes, when most of the game was played in the Lightning's end.
The Capitals' second goal came after Washington played with an empty net late in the third period and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored from a sharp angle along the line to cut the Lightning lead to 4-2.

When I was a kid, I learnt about the Gandhi and the special resistance, a non-violent resistance. Here is his final predicted starting XI.
With the Capitals lead down to one game the two teams will regroup and do it again on Thursday night for a pivotal game. Stamkos and Kucherov both tallied on the man-advantage to give the Lightning a 2-0 advantage early in the second, bringing Stamkos to a playoff-leading five power-play goals. Hedman assisted on that one too; and then Kucherov fed Hedman for a goal 1:47 later to make it 3-0. But a crucial 3-on-1 stop from Vasilevskiy on defenseman Christian Djoos minutes later turned momentum back to Tampa Bay as Vasilevskiy rebounded from two troubling performances at Amalie Arena. The game was a return to form for the Lightning defense, which had been stout before the Capitals series. Coach Barry Trotz said Backstrom was a game-time decision before each of the games in the conference final. But in Game 3 on Tuesday, that puck luck disappeared, the Lightning stepped up their play, and the Caps couldn't answer. "We're going to need that to keep going". Washington's penalty kill allowed two power-play goals in four opportunities, and its own power play failed to convert on three chances.
The Bolts get a power play.
"It was more kind of like an anger of like we want to get back - like let's get Game 3 going here", Tampa Bay's coach said. They scored four goals in Tampa. Part of it was Vasilevskiy, who made the big saves when he needed to, but the bigger difference was that the Lightning was not constantly putting their goalie in a position to bail them out of trouble.
"Ones where it just come off the stick", Stamkos said later, "and you know it feels really good". During last year's playoff series between the Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs, many fans were forced to leave Game 2 when it was tied 3-3 in overtime because metro service was ending soon. The goals also extended the Lightning's consecutive games with a power-play goal streak to eight.
This was how it should be for Tampa Bay.
