NHL Game Night: 11/3 Lightning at Leafs

Ugly, but I'll take it, I suppose.

TB-2
TOR-1 (OT)

Antero Niittymaki allowed 1 goal on 41 shots for the victory. I honestly don't know why there isn't a goaltending controversy at this point.

First Period
NO SCORING

Second Period
TB 18:34, Lecavalier 2 (Ohlund)

Third Period
TOR 5:04, White 3 (Hagman, Beauchemin)(PP)

Overtime
TB 2:21, Malone 9 (Tanguay)

It's lucky that A.) Nittymaki stood on his head again, and B.) Toronto is just awful enough to lose games like this even when they deserve to win. Allowing 41 shots to a team like the Leafs is a joke. Maybe the momentum and mojo the team will get from winning an overtime game will help them in the confidence department, but this is still a terrible Lightning team on the road.

Steve Downie was +1 with 2 hits in 11:44.

Drew Miller only played 4:09 in the game.

Zenon Konopka had 1 hit and was 75% on draws in 4:52.

James Wright played 13:25.

Victor Hedman was +2 with 1 shot, 1 hit, and 4 blocked shots in 25:46. He also had 4 PIMs, though.
