Kucherov, Lightning beat Capitals in East round-robin play

TORONTO (AP) Nikita Kucherov scored a goal in the first period and the winner in the shootout to help the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Washington Capitals 3-2 on Monday in Eastern Conference round-robin play.

The teams played 5 minutes of 3-on-3 overtime before going to a shootout because the games for seeding follow regular-season rules. Tampa Bay's win puts it in a tie with Philadelphia at two points apiece in the Eastern Conference race, while Washington is third with one and Boston fourth with zero.

"All around, I thought that was a playoff game," Lightning winger Patrick Maroon said. "Obviously we're trying to get as many points as we can to seed ourselves in a good position."
