The Capitals outshot the Lightning 38-23 — but center Lars Eller, who filled in for an injured Nicklas Backstrom on the second line a fourth straight game, said they didn't take advantage of their looks.
"That's the position you want to be in as a player. You want to play as much as possible. I embrace that," Eller said. "That's where I want to be. That's great. When it's the playoffs you want to be out there as much as possible."
