Another game of Lightning hockey appeared to be headed towards the loss column. The difference was they got some shots in net to beat the Florida Panthers 6-5.  Florida appeared to have things in hand in the third period when they scored two goals to make it 5-3. But after a tripping call to the Panthers’ Alex Kovalev, Steven Stamkos scored on the power play to bring the Bolts to within one. Then, with under :15 seconds left and Anders Lindback pulled from net, Tampa Bay tied the game courtesy of the shot from Teddy Purcell to force overtime. On the Lightning’s first shot in overtime, Benoit Pouliot would take the shot in front as the puck bounced off the boards to give the Lighting a 6-5 win. Tampa Bay got 36 shots off to Florida’s 30. The game marked the first time since February 2nd’s loss to the Rangers that the Lightning outshot their opponent. It also marks the team’s first win in the last seven games. The post Lightning stop skid with win over Panthers appeared first on The Bay Cave.
