Mishkin's Extra Shift: Lightning 4, Capitals 2

Lightning broadcaster Dave Mishkin recaps the Bolts 4-2 win in Washington

by Dave Mishkin / TampaBayLightning.com

Before I get to the nuts and bolts of this game, a general comment. Boy, is it nice to finally see a Lightning win in Washington! Capital One Arena, formerly the Verizon Center, has been a house of horrors for the Lightning in recent years. Going back to the 2011-12 season, the Lightning had posted one win in 12 regular season games in Washington. In two of those defeats, incidentally, the Lightning had grabbed a 3-0 lead before the Caps rallied.

by Bryan Burns / TampaBayLightning.com

With the Boston Bruins and the Toronto Maple Leafs bearing down hard on the Atlantic Division-leading Tampa Bay Lightning of late, the Bolts traveled to Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., a rink they haven't come home victorious since the final game of the 2013-14 regular season.

Sparked by perhaps their best period of the season, the Lightning finally broke through in our nation's capital, earning a 4-2 result for a monumental victory to start a three-game road trip.

Mishkin's Extra Shift: Devils 4, Lightning 3

Lightning broadcaster Dave Mishkin recaps Tampa Bay's 4-3 loss to the Devils

by Dave Mishkin / TampaBayLightning.com

Obviously, the play of New Jersey goalie Eddie Lack was a big factor in tonight's outcome. The Lightning fired a season-high 51 shots on goal and Lack made a career-best 48 saves. Of those 48 stops, many were on Grade-A scoring chances. He had a magnificent performance and deserves credit for helping his team, which is in the middle of the muddled playoff pack in the Metropolitan Division, pick up a crucial road win.
