TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Teddy Purcell scored in the sixth round of a shootout and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Thursday night. Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis also scored in the extra session, helping the Lightning win the shootout 3-2. Ladislav Smid pulled Edmonton even at 2 with 3:47 left in regulation with his first goal in 38 games, coming from the low left circle off a nice pass by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Tom Pyatt scored twice for Tampa Bay, and Dwayne Roloson made 34 saves. Linus Omark also scored for the Oilers. It was the first time that Edmonton's Nikolai Khabibulin, who stopped 19 shots, played in Tampa since Game 7 of the 2004 Stanley Cup finals, when he helped the Lightning beat Calgary 2-1 to win the team's only NHL championship. Pyatt opened the scoring from just outside the crease during a power play at 3:24 of the second. After Omark tied with an in-close re-direction 9:57 into the second, Pyatt made it 2-1 on a rebound goal with 1:42 left in the period. Roloson made an early first-period save on Ales Hemsky, who had his first career hat trick in Edmonton's 6-3 win over Nashville on Tuesday night, during a breakaway. The Oilers outshot Tampa Bay 15-7 in the first. Khabibulin stopped NHL goals leader Stamkos' breakaway backhander just over a minute into the second. Stamkos has not scored in four games since getting his 50th of the season against Boston on March 13. Roloson (42 years, 5 months) and Khabibulin (39 years, 2 months) have combined to play 1,381 NHL games. NOTES: Edmonton LW Taylor Hall sat out his third consecutive game due to a concussion. ... Tampa Bay RW Ryan Shannon will miss the rest of the season after having shoulder surgery. ... Oilers C Lennart Petrell, who left Tuesday's game because of a groin injury, did not play. ... This was just the third time since 2003 that Edmonton has played at Tampa Bay.
