Caps won again as a heavy underdog. Tom Wilson got to play and got a goal. Tampa tried to set the tone and be more physical in Games 1 and 2, but it did not seem to work. Since 1975, a team with a 2-0 lead in the conference final or semifinal has a series record of 39-2. Tampa is, to quote O Brother, Where Art Thou?, “In a tight spot”.
Knights ML at +131 for 1 unit. Knights responded last round after a Game 1 loss and I expect the same here. Fleury should play a little better in this one. Vegas did not win enough faceoffs or have enough takeaways in Game 1. I think they will make the necessary adjustments in Game 2.
