Capitals vs. Bolts Third Period Thread

Nicklas Backstrom's sixth and seventh goals of the season were tonight's first two and the Capitals lead the game 2 to 0 after forty minutes. His first tally came at 10:33 and his second came at the 18:40 mark of the middle frame.

Tampa Bay outshot Washington 13 to 9 through the most recent period of play but Washington now has a two goal lead to protect through the last twenty minutes of play.

Third period ahead...
