NBC Sports Network to air Caps-Lightning
The Washington Capitals have their playoff fate in their own hands, and they can move closer to locking up the last playoff berth in the Eastern Conference on Monday night.
The Washington Capitals have their playoff fate in their own hands, and they can move closer to locking up the last playoff berth in the Eastern Conference on Monday night.

The Caps take a two-point lead on Buffalo into their game at Tampa Bay, one of just two on the NHL schedule. Washington blew a 2-0 lead against Montreal on Saturday but won 3-2 in a shootout to move two points clear of the Sabres. Tampa Bay, playing its final home game of the season, has won four of its last six and comes into this one after Steven Stamkos' single-season record fifth overtime goal of the season gave the Lightning a 3-2 win against Winnipeg.

The NBC Sports Network will televise the game in the United States, beginning at 7 p.m. ET. Canadian viewers can tune in on TSN2 and RDSI.

Monday's other game also has big playoff implications. Los Angeles, the leader in the Pacific Division, hosts Edmonton at 10:30 p.m. ET. The Kings are home after finishing a four-game trip with a 4-3 shootout loss at Minnesota on Saturday. A regulation loss to the Oilers, a 2-1 winner at Anaheim on Sunday, would drop the Kings out of the division lead.
Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
