NHL Game Night: 11-14 Kings at Lightning

The Lightning finally work in one of their mandatory 3-4 late game goal wave off hosings.

LA-2
TB-1 (SO)

Antero Niittymaki allowed 1 goal on 30 shots and only 1 of 3 shooters to score in the shootout, but still took the loss. I'm thinking the Finnish goaltenders in the organization are feeling discriminated against for lack of goal support tonight.

A controversial wave off of an Andrei Meszaros overtime goal ushered the Lightning into the shootout where they re-established their season-long streak of futility after a brief taste of success against Minnesota.
