- Alexander Semin scored the game-winner last night and the game tying goal tonight. In the 4 games Semin played against the Lightning he scored 7 goals and assisted on 2 more for 9 points. Not bad, I bet he wishes he could play the Lightning every game.
- Alex Ovechkin assisted on Semin's goal and has points in 5 straight games and 13 points in his last 10. He is 1 point behind Michal Pivonka for 3rd place on the Capitals All-Time Scoring List.
- The Capitals failed to convert on the power play for the 6th consecutive game. They went 0 for 3 whlie the Bolts went 1 for 4.
- Dennis Wideman picked up his first point as a Capitals with the 2nd assist on the Semin goal.
