But Tampa restored the three-goal lead when Point somehow found a puck in a scrum in front the Washington goal and whacked it through the legs of Stephenson to beat Holtby.
"I think mine", Stamkos said with a smile.
The 27-year-old Swede did a bunch of cheering himself here at Capital One Arena, while the sea of fans in red looked on, silently and sadly, and then he dropped his six-foot-six frame into a low fist pump. Here were the most important. The Lightning defense held the Capitals scoreless on three power plays, while converting two of its five man-advantages for an opening 2-0 lead. "You've got to make them chase the game", Cooper said. "It's how we're playing and our effort, our game plan".
Washington Capitals fans will be able to ride the subway after Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals thanks to Qatar.
"We knew we had to weather the storm there", Stamkos said.
How they've managed to do this much and get this far with so many missing pieces every night, including in this series, is even more stunning.
Both teams entered the game red-hot on the power play, and the Lightning's unsafe extra-man unit continued its terrorizing ways.
"When they go in the net, they're all nice", he said.
Indeed. With a 4-2 road victory on Tuesday that saw Tampa Bay lead from start to finish, the perennial contenders at this stage have made it a series with the Capitals, cutting Washington's lead to 2-1.

Tampa Bay's scoring centre had a goal and an assist at Washington in Game Three and has 15 points (6 G, 9 A) in 13 playoff games.
"You think of Kucherov and Stamkos, those guys leading the charge", coach Jon Cooper said, "when we've needed them in big games ... those guys have delivered".
Asked what his club could do to fare better at home, Capitals coach Barry Trotz said: "Just play the way we do on the road". That was big for us.
After the first two games, it seemed possible that the Caps would return back to Washington and simply end the series against Tampa Bay.
And certainly it had to be a relief that the Lightning made a few adjustments, and got the result they've been seeking. The Caps didn't steal, but dominated both road games. Alex Ovechkin and Kuznetsov combined for 21 shots on goal.
The Bolts get ANOTHER ONE with less than 4 minutes left to go in the second.
"I can't say enough about our penalty kill tonight and how it gave us momentum as well", Stamkos said.
Somehow, the Lightning survived that penalty. Point picked up an assist on Steven Stamkos' power-play goal in the first period.
It was especially true in the third period, when the Capitals took three penalties while trying to claw back into a game they trailed 3-1.
Besides, who could he bring in that would be able to do a better job than anybody already on the ice?
