Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau is hoping his top-seeded team will be more patient in Game 2 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

After dropping the opener of its Eastern Conference semifinal at home 4-2, Washington hosts Tampa Bay again Sunday. Boudreau says the Capitals made a mistake in Game 1 by abandoning the more defensive stance they adopted this season and reverting to their more go-go, think-about-scoring style of the past.

He says that instead of ``realizing we can win games 2-1, we tried to win it 5-1.'' Washington led Game 1 by a goal before Tampa Bay scored three in a row.

Lightning coach Guy Boucher says he expects the Capitals to be "outstanding" Sunday.
