by Rodger M. WoodLady Luck turned her face on the Caps a couple moments, while one Lightning goal deflected off Caps defenseman Mike Green’s stick in the second period and another came after a pass made good in overtime when defenseman Scott Hannan left the ice for a necessary rest. After Alex Ovechkin had tied the score up 2-2 with a minute to go in regulation, and came out on the ice fired up, the Caps lost 3-2 in overtime.Yes, we’re down 2-0 in the semifinals, but don’t fear. The Caps were dominating the second game too, hitting and playing hard and lucky breaks have a way of evening themselves out in a seven game series. So watch out Tampa fans. We’ll come back to win two games on your ice Tuesday and Wednesday, just like your 2003 Tampa Bay Lightning did against the Caps on their way to the Stanley Cup Championship!
