Stamkos, Filppula both score in SO to lift Lightning over Panthers

SUNRISE, Fla. - Steven Stamkos and Valtteri Filppula both scored in the shootout to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 4-3 win over the Florida Panthers 4-3 on Sunday.

Stamkos made some nice moves and slipped the puck past Jacob Markstrom on his left side for the deciding goal.

Stamkos, Radko Gudas, and Martin St Louis all scored in regulation for Tampa Bay, which has won five of six. Anders Lindback stopped 29 shots and turned aside three of four Florida shooters in the tiebreaker. Stamkos also had an assist.

Brad Boyes, Nick Bjugstad and Shawn Matthias scored, and Markstrom made 25 saves for Florida. Boyes also had a shootout goal. Jonathan Huberdeau, Aleksander Barkov, and Dmitry Kulikov all missed.

The Panthers lost for the fifth time in seven games, including two shootouts.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
