Tampa fought back and jumped all over Washington early in game 3 to re-establish themselves in the ECF, but this game is absolutely huge. Will this be a one-game whimper for them or can they use that performance to build a competitive series out of this one? I’ll go medium-bold here and say the winner of this game is going to win the whole series.
