On a day where the DC sky was full of actual lightning, the Washington Capitals net was full of Tampa Bay Lightning goals as the hometown boys fell 4-2 in Game Three. The Capitals now hold a 2-1 series lead, making Thursday’s game so very important.
The Capitals out-shot the Lightning 38 to 23 and out-attempted them at five-on-five 42 to 37.
Since 2005/06, 219 NHLers have taken 9 shots in a game.
Only 105 have done it multiple times.
Only 28 have done it 5+ times.
Only 7 have done it 10+ times.
Only 1 player has done it 20+ times.
