DOES LIGHTNING STRIKE THE SAME PLACE TWICE?

If the name of that place is “the Capitals’ goal” the yes, it does in the second period.

Brayden Point got the Lightning out to an early 2-0 lead in the second frame, poking a loose puck through Braden Holtby’s not-tightly-enough-squeezed pads from the crease.

Evgeny Kuznetsov got one back for Washington, though, tapping in a gorgeous backdoor saucer pass from T.J. Oshie to cut the lead to 2-1.

But in the final minute, Alex Killorn ripped a wicked wrister from the right circle that just flat out beat Holtby dead-to-rights, and this game sits at 3-1 Lightning after two.
