Lightning Win In Second Overtime On Missed Offside Call

Tampa Bay took a 1-0 lead in their Stanley Cup playoff series against Montreal when the Lightning’s Nikita Kucherov found the net two minutes into the second overtime period at Bell Centre for a 2-1 final score.

Here he is somehow smacking a backhanded shot past Wild goalie Devin Dubnyk. Tarasenko’s goal was his second second of the game, and Dubnyk was pulled a few minutes later after letting in his… » 4/23/15 12:13am 4/23/15 12:13am
