A three-game winning streak ended rudely for the Tampa Bay Lightning Friday.
The Washington Capitals took a 4-2 victory from the Bolts after building a 4-0 lead. It was Washington’s fifth win in the last six games.
Three of the Caps’ goals were on the power play. Alex Ovechkin scored the first of them, and Jason Chimera and T.J. Oshie followed.
For the Lightning, Brian Boyle and Victor Hedman scored to make it sound closer than it was. It was the 13th time in 24 games that the Bolts have been held to two goals or fewer.
Andrei Vasilevskiy faced 37 shots, including 18 in the first period alone.
The Lightning is home against the Islanders on Saturday night.
