2011 NHL Playoffs, Capitals Vs. Lightning Game 4 Score: Sean Bergenheim's Pair Gives Lightning 3-2 Lead Over Caps After Second Period

Sean Bergenheim may start to haunt the Capitals' collective dreams.

Bergenheim scored twice in the second period and the Lightning have a 3-2 lead after two periods.

The first goal came at 4:41 when Bergenheim found himself with enough room in the slot after Michal Neuvirth gave up a big rebound to put it in the net. About eight minutes later, Bergenheim followed Dominic Moore's initial shot and put yet another rebound past Neuvirth at 12:34. The two goals were Bergeneim's third and fourth of the series and seventh in the playoffs.

With the Caps down 3-1, they needed some sort of offense and they got it from the unlikeliest of sources. John Erskine simply threw the puck on goal from a tight angle along the boards that somehow beat Dwayne Roloson at 13:40. It was Erskine's first career playoff goal.

Shots were 17-10 in favor of Tampa Bay and are 28-22 in favor of the Lightning for the game.
