TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING

at WASHINGTON CAPITALS

Eastern Conference Playoffs – Second Round
Game 2 – Tampa Bay leads series 1-0
Puck drops: Sunday, 6:30 p.m. EDT
Line: Washington -185, Tampa Bay +160, Total: 5.5

After taking Game 1, Tampa Bay will attempt to take a 2-0 lead back home when it takes on the Washington Capitals in Game 2 of their best-of-seven series. After falling behind the Penguins 3-games-to-1 in the first round, the Lightning have won four straight games.

Tampa Bay received a lot of help from its complimentary players in winning Game 1 as Sean Bergenheim, Steve Downie and Dominic Moore scored three of the four goals. After missing 19 regular-season games, Downie has been outstanding in these playoffs, leading the Lightning with nine points (2 G, 7 A). Vincent Lecavalier has also been spectacular so far, totaling eight points (2 G, 6 A) and dishing out two assists in Game 1. After leading the Eastern Conference in power-play goals during the regular season, the Lightning have scored nine in the postseason to lead the NHL. NFL scores.

Alex Ovechkin was held without a point for just the second time this postseason in Game 1, and only had two shots on goal in the 4-2 loss. The Caps are now 2-5 all-time when Ovechkin is held to two shots or less in a playoff game. Alexander Semin continued his strong postseason, scoring his team-leading fourth goal in Game 1. In order for Washington to win this series, it needs more production from Nicklas Backstrom. After registering 101 points in 2009-10, Backstrom had a disappointing season, as his point total dropped by 36. He has been invisible offensively so far this postseason, recording just one assist despite centering a line with Ovechkin and Brooks Laich. NFL spreads.

Both teams have key players who may miss this game due to injuries sustained in Game 1. The Lightning aren’t saying whether forward Simon Gagne, who left after hitting his head on the ice in the first period, and defenseman Pavel Kubina, who exited after being rammed into the glass by Jason Chimera in the second period, will be ready to go. The Caps hope rookie defenseman John Carlson, who left Friday’s game with an undisclosed injury, will be ready. Washington said he was “too sore to go” after one shift in the third period. Carlson didn’t skate at Saturday’s practice, though Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau hopes he can play. Washington is without forward Mike Knuble (hand) and defensemen Dennis Wideman (leg) and Tom Poti (groin). Both blue-liners skated Saturday but aren’t ready to come back yet.

If the Lightning continues to get scoring from its third line of Bergenheim, Downie and Moore who have combined for 19 points (8 G, 11 A), they will be impossible to defeat. With superstars like Martin St. Louis, Steven Stamkos, Simon Gagne and Vincent Lecavalier getting their points, and Dwayne Roloson holding down the nets, Tampa could make it all way to the Stanley Cup Finals. I like Tampa Bay to win Game 2, on its way to a series win in six games. NFL lines.

This highly-rated FoxSheets trend also likes the Lightning win Game 2.

WASHINGTON is 18-31 ATS (36.7%, -29.0 Units) in home games against good starting goalies – (saving >= 91.5% of shots against) in the 2nd half of the season since 1996. The average score was WASHINGTON 2.3, OPPONENT 2.6 – (Rating = 3*).
