For the first two-plus periods, however, the Lightning appeared to have the game in hand. The Carolina Hurricanes are on the road as they travel to face the Tampa Bay Lightning Saturday night.

The Lightning, coming off back-to-back losses to St. Louis and Washington, the past two Stanley Cup champions, will host the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night. The Hurricanes have proven to be able to get it done on both sides of the ice. Vrana's 12th goal got the Capitals within one. The Lightning has played pretty well recently, winning their last three before losing the St. Louis Blues in their last game 4-3.

The Capitals rallied after trailing 3-1 through two periods. In the final period, Carolina held a 10-8 advantage in shots on goal with neither team lighting the lamp, leaving the Hurricanes on the wrong end of the scoreboard. The Lightning is led in points and goals by Nikita Kucherov and still has star player Steve Stamkos who has 20 points himself. Carlson is fifth in the National Hockey League with 36 points, scoring eight goals and totaling 28 assists. "It's just unfortunate we've just got only one point out of it from four".

The Carolina Hurricanes go down South to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida.

Washington has not been quite as dominant lately as it was earlier in the season and while Tampa Bay is having difficulty finding consistent traction, I think it will be properly motivated here and the talent is there on the Lightning roster to win any game. Tampa Bay is 54-17 in its last 71 games versus the Eastern Conference.

Lightning: 6-4-0, averaging 4.1 goals, 7.4 assists, 4.4 penalties and 11.8 penalty minutes while allowing 2.7 goals per game with a.912 save percentage.

In their last game, the Lightning missed an opportunity to come up with the win against the Capitals.

Tampa Bay is 9-13 ATS this season.

The Lightning took a 1-0 lead at 18:50 of the first period when Point scored a power-play goal on a one-timer from the slot off a pass from Kucherov. The Capitals scored multiple power-play goals for the first time since October 29.

Mikhail Sergachev made it 2-0 when he followed up his own shot and reached behind Holtby to knock the puck in at 4:28 of the second period. After giving up a goal to make it a 2-1 lead, Alex Killorn made it a 3-1 game with his sixth of the year at 18:48 off assists from Point and Kucherov.

Braden Holtby made 27 saves for Washington, and Andrei Vasilevskiy had 31 stops for Tampa Bay. Curtis McElhinney is expected to get a start in the contest for the Lightning here.
