It was also one of the few times in this series that the Lightning weren't chasing the game, something that the Capitals had exploited in Games 1 and 2.
"We know (the Capitals) have a great power play, and they obviously played around in the first two games and got some big goals", Hedman said.
Dropping the first two games of the Eastern Conference Final at home is not how the Tampa Bay Lightning hoped to start the series. "And we did", said Stamkos, after the Lightning's 4-2 road victory on Tuesday night reduced their series deficit to 2-1.
Starbucks slams Seattle's new big business tax
It also includes $2.3 million in revenue to go towards a five-year goal of picking up 950,000 pounds of garbage. Almost 600 employers - about 3 percent of all Seattle businesses - would pay the tax starting in 2019.
Washington goalie Braden Holtby stopped 19 shots. They scored first courtesy of Steven Stamkos on the power play. But a crucial 3-on-1 stop from Vasilevskiy on defenseman Christian Djoos minutes later turned momentum back to Tampa Bay as Vasilevskiy rebounded from two troubling performances at Amalie Arena.
A late goal in the second period from Brett Connolly and another from Evgeny Kuznetsov in the third made it interesting. The game was a return to form for the Lightning defense, which had been stout before the Capitals series. Capitals coach Barry Trotz said before Tuesday's game that Backstrom remains "day-to-day".
After not allowing Boston to score an even-strength goal in the final three games during the second round, Tampa Bay has been outscored 7-1 by Washington at even strength and 10-4 overall.

The North's leader, Kim Jong Un , was in China again last week following a visit in March. Abe will also press Trump to bring up the abduction issue during his meeting with Kim.
"We've thought about different things, but for me and our staff, we don't feel it's a personnel issue with how things are going", he said. Kucherov netted on the power play, Hedman found a fairly wide-open net to shoot at, and Brayden Point provided a late marker to give the Bolts a 4-1 edge through 40 minutes. Vasilevskiy went into the game 3-1 on the road in the playoffs, however, after leading the National Hockey League with 18 road wins in the regular season. "We weren't able to get some of our guys that don't really have a role in the power play or penalty kill to get a chance to use them again". "Any time you look on the screen, there's five guys and that just means you're playing as a group of five, and you're playing connected and playing with real good structure and responsibility".
"It wasn't really fair for him the first couple and we really didn't do a good job in front of him so it was big", defenseman Anton Stralman said. Part of it was Vasilevskiy, who made the big saves when he needed to, but the bigger difference was that the Lightning was not constantly putting their goalie in a position to bail them out of trouble. Even with the horrendous calls in the first period of Game 2, the Caps prevailed, and it wasn't even close. "They didn't do what they did all year because of a fluke", Washington center Jay Beagle said.
This was how it should be for Tampa Bay.
