Ideal start tonight for the Washington Capitals. (More on that below.)
Oshie scored again later in the period, giving Washington a 2-0 lead. Hard to imagine a worse start for the Lightning, which is fighting for an Eastern Conference wild card spot.
The Lightning is a point back of Toronto for the final wild card position. But credit Tampa Bay for shaking that off with goals from Nikita Kucherov and Alex Killorn 16 seconds apart to tie the game before the first intermission.
