McDonagh blocked four shots Tuesday in a 4-2 road win over the Capitals as the Lightning took Game 3 of the conference finals.

The American defenseman missed the scoresheet for the fifth consecutive game, but he was terrific defensively, highlighted by a heads-up play that saw McDonagh bat down an Evgeny Kuznetsov shot on the penalty kill. Tampa still has work to do as it's down 2-1 in the series, though it was nice to see McDonagh -- who's averaging 22:21 in the playoffs -- bounce back from a terrible Game 2 performance in which he posted a minus-3 rating at home.
