The Lightning have been given no respect by the critics or Vegas in this series. Yet they have beaten Pittsburgh in four straight games and five of six. The Caps series may have taken something out of the Pens. Even if goaltender Ben Bishop doesn't go, his backup Andrei Vasilevskiy was outstanding in his place on Friday night, stopping 25 of 26 shots.
