Ryan Malone scored 1:58 into overtime as the Tampa Bay Lightning overcame a two-goal deficit to beat the Eastern Conference-leading New York Rangers 4-3 on Friday night.
Malone beat Henrik Lundqvist from the slot as his game-winner stopped a personal 10-game goal drought.
Brandon Dubinsky got the Rangers even at 3 from the left circle with 3:27 left in the third.
Steven Stamkos scored his league-leading 45th goal from slot at 10:17 of the third to give the Lightning a 3-2 lead.
Tom Pyatt and Teddy Purcell also scored for the Lightning, who moved within four points of eighth-place Winnipeg in the East. Purcell added two assists.
Artem Anisimov and Marian Gaborik had other Rangers' goals. New York dropped to 29-1-3 when scoring the game's first goal.
Purcell tied it at 2 from just outside the crease off a nifty pass from Martin St. Louis at 3:37 of the third. Purcell has five goals and 17 points during a career-high eight-game point streak.
The Lightning got within 2-1 ...
BEST OF MAXIM
To say Brandon Dubinsky is having an off-year would be an understatement. Outside of his boneheaded penalties of late, most focus on his anemic goal total and his offensive contribution, and with good reason. Dubinsky is making $4.2 million for the next three seasons following the 2011-2012 campaign, and he has contributed just seven goals and 26 points in 60 games this year.
