Steven Stamkos was the game's second star.

Just some uncharacteristically bad situational hockey from the Lightning that really let them down tonight. They allowed goals in the final minute of the First and Second Periods as well as Overtime, when they've generally been the team that's more clutch late in frames this year. That combined with a little puck luck for Winnipeg on the tying Third Period goal cost the Lightning a point tonight.

Anthony Cirelli had 4 shots and 1 blocked shot in 16:54. He was also 43% on 14 draws.

Adam Erne had 1 shot and 3 hits in 10:28.

Ontario Hockey League

Kitchener Rangers 2 @ Sudbury Wolves 5

C/W Alexey Lipanov, KIT: 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 3/14 FO
Season Totals: 27 GP, 7-7-14, -20, 8 PIM
17-18 Totals (BAR, SBY): 55 GP, 14-25-39, -14, 10 PIM

Lipanov had the primary assist on Jonathan Yantsis’ go-ahead goal in the second period, but that 2-1 lead was short-lived as Lipanov’s former team scored the game’s next four goals. Lipanov played 20 games for Sudbury last season after coming over in a trade from Barrie. He had nine points in those 20 games. Quinton Byfield (2020), the No. 1 overall pick in the OHL this year, had two goals Friday for the Wolves. The 6-5, 214-pound center has 14 goals and 29 points in 27 games this season. He is expected to go early in the 2020 NHL draft.
