Lightning Vs. Capitals: Exciting Third Period Awaits As Caps, Bolts Tied At 3-3

Things haven't settled down at Verizon Center.

Only two goals were scored, but there were 14 minutes worth of penalties as the Capitals and Lightning are tied at 3-3 after the second period.

Dominic Moore gave the Lightning a 3-2 lead just 56 seconds into the period when a Roman Hamrlik turnover led to Ryan Shannon feeding Moore the puck in the slot for a one-timer. Troy Brouwer tied it when he deflected Jeff Schultz's slap shot from the point past Dwayne Roloson at 3:42 for his first goal of the season and as a Cap.

Marcus Johansson assisted on Brouwer's goal, but right after he passed to Schultz, Ryan Malone caught him up high with a stick to the fce. Johansson stayed down on the ice holding his face while his teammates scored and headed to the locker room, but returned shortly after.

The Caps are 0-5 on the power play and will have 53 seconds to work on their sixth to start the third period while Malone sits in the penalty box.
