Mishkin's Extra Shift: Lightning 2, Sabres 1 - SO

Radio broadcaster Dave Mishkin recaps Tampa Bay's 2-1 shootout victory over Buffalo last night

by Dave Mishkin / TampaBayLightning.com

The first period of this game was a slow, plodding, deliberate affair, with lots of stops and starts. By the third period, it had morphed into an intense, emotional, physical, nasty contest. Nikita Kucherov and Brayden Point met that physical challenge by standing up for themselves against Buffalo's Rasmus Ristolainen and Jeff Skinner. Also notable was how well both teams defended in front of their goalies and how both netminders, when tested, produced terrific saves. In the end, it came down to the shootout, during which the Lightning got goals from Steven Stamkos and Kucherov along with two saves from Andrei Vasilevskiy. The victory was their eighth consecutive win.
