Steven Stamkos was the game's second star.

Just some uncharacteristically bad situational hockey from the Lightning that really let them down tonight. They allowed goals in the final minute of the First and Second Periods as well as Overtime, when they've generally been the team that's more clutch late in frames this year. That combined with a little puck luck for Winnipeg on the tying Third Period goal cost the Lightning a point tonight.

Anthony Cirelli had 4 shots and 1 blocked shot in 16:54. He was also 43% on 14 draws.

Adam Erne had 1 shot and 3 hits in 10:28.
