Two games into the Eastern Conference Final and it has been all Caps thus far. Washington has taken a 2-0 series lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning thanks to two dominant performances on the road.
The stars really came out to play for the Caps in Game 2 as Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov really led the charge. John Carlson's big night also landed him the franchise record for most points in a single postseason (14), a number he will try to add to in Game 3.
The Capitals dominated the first two games. Can they keep that going in Game 3 on Tuesday?
