Dominic Moore was the game's third star.

Curtis McElhinney is the luckiest son of a bitch in the City of Tampa tonight. Can't control your rebounds? Can't follow the puck? Look shakier than a crack fiend Jonesing for a fix? No worries! The hockey gods will throw you a bone! The Lightning did just about everything you can do to a goaltender in that third period, short of committing a crime, and somehow the puck would not go in for the tying marker. Blind luck: it favors young children, old fools, and goaltenders named McElhinney.

Blair Jones had 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 4:32 of ice time.
