WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a shocking first game, the Lightning won, 4-2, over the Capitals.

The Lightning opened the scoring 2:12 in from Sean Bergenheim, but the Capitals got the next two off of Alexander Semin and Eric Fehr.

Steve Downie tied the game with 3:43 remaining in the second and then Steven Stamkos gave them the lead on his goal on the power play 3:11 after Downie.

Dominic Moore added the empty-net goal to seal the win.

GAME 1: SJS 2 – DET 1, OT

SAN JOSE – Just like last year, the Sharks win this first game of the series against the Red Wings, but this time in overtime.

It was a low-scoring game, with Nicklas Lidstrom giving the Red Wings a 1-0 lead in the first and the Sharks didn’t tie it until Joe Pavelski scored on the power play in the third.

Birthday boy Benn Ferriero notched the game winner in overtime to not only score his first playoff goal in his first playoff game, but also gave the Sharks the win and the 1-0 series lead.

The Sharks almost doubled the Red Wings in shots, going 46-25 in the game.
