Tampa Bay vs Washington game thread

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Bolts hold their fate in their own hands, as they face the golf bound Caps. Gooooooooo Washington!

This game is for all the marbles. Well, maybe not all the marbles, but definitely the home ice advantage marbles.

Washington is only playing for pride, as they've been eliminated from the playoffs for a while now, whereas Tampa should come out firing on all cylinders, considering a win would guarantee home ice advantage in round 1 versus the Canadiens. An overtime loss would not be enough, and would ensure the Habs get home ice advantage.

Victor Hedman should be a game time decision, as will be Ondrej Palat.
