Second period thread.

Plenty of fireworks early at a raucous Capital One Arena for Game 3!

Tampa Bay came out to play, and prove they’re not going out of this thing without a fight. Halfway through the frame, Anton Stralman launched himself high into Tom Wilson’s back for a boarding penalty that sent Willy to the locker room (he would return).

Then, with the Caps on the PK as punishment for a Braden Holtby tripping penalty (you read that right), Steven Stamkos put his feet up in Ovi’s Office and blasted a rocket that makes this one 1-0 Lightning at the break.

Second period ahead...
