It’s Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning and temperatures are flaring early. After one period of play Tampa Bay holds a 2-1 lead.
The Capitals scored early to take a 1-0 advantage, but gave up a quick goal just over a minute later to bring the score to 1-1. Tampa Bay would take advantage not long after, with Steven Stamkos finding the back of the net.
Washington had plenty of chances to even the game, including three huge power plays in the first period.
However, the team came up empty and was booed off the ice by its home fans.

Caps fans just booed the Caps and their power play, which while the team is up 2 games to 1 in their first ECF in 20 years, seems slightly aggressive.

Clearly Capitals fans are a little uneasy after the team’s hot start. Still, Washington holds a 2-1 advantage in the series.
The away team has won all three games in this series thus far, and Tampa Bay holds the early 2-1 lead in Washington D.C. tonight.
