Killorn's OT goal caps Lightning's come-from-behind 3-2 victory over winless Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Alex Killorn scored 2:50 into overtime to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning to a come-from-behind 3-2 victory over the winless Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.

Teddy Purcell, with the tying goal 5:43 into the third period, and Tyler Johnson also scored for the Lightning (2-1), who have two wins after regulation.

Tampa Bay has yet to hold a lead in regulation after coming off a 3-2 shootout victory at Chicago in which the Lightning overcame a 2-0 third-period deficit.

Jamie McBain and Cody Hodgson had a goal and assist each for Buffalo (0-3-1).

Despite the loss, Buffalo finally generated some offence by doubling its season goal total. And the Sabres also earned a point to avoid extending their franchise-worst season-opening losing streak to four games.

Buffalo had previously never lost more than two straight in regulation.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
