Stamkos pushes Lightning past Flames in OT

Steven Stamkos jammed home the game-winner 30 seconds into overtime, lifting the Lightning to a 5-4 win over the Flames.

Tampa Bay wasted a two-goal lead in the third period, but tic-tac-toe passing between the trio of Steve Downie, Eric Brewer and Stamkos early in the extra session resulted in the latter re-directing Brewer’s cross-ice feed into the back of the net.

Tom Pyatt, Ryan Malone and Nate Thompson each scored in the second period to give the Lightning a 4-2 lead, only to have Rene Bourque and Olli Jokinen score in the third period to salvage a point for Calgary, which has dropped two straight.

Miikka Kiprusoff gave up all five goals on 34 shots, while Mathieu Garon earned the win, Tampa Bay’s second in nine games, with a 23-save effort.
