What a gritty, gutty performance by a tired and undermanned Tampa Bay Lightning led by John Grahame.
John Grahame made 36 saves for the shutout while Vaclav Prospal
picked countryman Petr Prucha's pocket to deposit the game winning goal late in overtime. Prospal's thievery was made possible by an incredible diving poke check just moments earlier by Paul Ranger
on a Michael Nylander breakaway attempt. Ranger played 15:46 of even hockey with two takeaways. Evgeny Artyukhin
played a quiet 10:56 as the checking lines were limited in ice time due to newcomers Jim Campbell and Norm Milley joining the team. Ryan Craig
was scratched again with a broken toe.
