Lightning Clinging To A 2-1 Lead Over Washington

In a highly competitive game, the Tampa Bay Lightning are clinging to a 2-1 lead over the Washington Capitals in the third period at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. The Lightning are looking to win their second consecutive game, and to this point are showing plenty of determination in trying to fend of the last period charge of the powerful Caps.

Tampa Bay has held a slight lead throughout this contest, jumping to a 1-0 advantage in the first period as a result of Tom Pyatt's 6th goal of the season. The Lightning extended their margin over the Caps to 2-0 in the second period behind the 40th goal of the year scored by Steven Stamkos. Stamkos, Tampa's leader in goals scored, managed to beat Washington goalie Tomas Vokoun early in period. The Caps cut the deficit to 2-1 midway through the second period, but to this point all of their attempts to tie the game up have come up short.
