NHL Game Night 10/27: Sabres at Lightning

We was robbed.

TB-3 (OT)

Johan Holmqvist stopped 22 of 26 in taking the overtime loss. The Lightning were the victims of two controversial calls/non calls in the game.

First Period

Second Period
Tampa Bay 3:25, Vaclav Prospal 9 (Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis)
Tampa Bay 4:45, Michel Ouellet 2 (Chris Gratton, Mathieu Darche)
Buffalo 9:30, Maxim Afinogenov 2 (Thomas Vanek, Nathan Paetsch)
Buffalo 14:28, Paul Gaustad 3 (power play) (Tim Connolly, Brian Campbell)

Third Period
Tampa Bay 6:14, Vincent Lecavalier 5 (power play) (Martin St. Louis, Brad Richards)
Buffalo 13:13, Nathan Paetsch 1 (Jason Pominville, Jochen Hecht)

Buffalo 4:19, Thomas Vanek 3 (unassisted)

The Lightning had a late third period power play goal by Vincent Lecavalier disallowed because Martin St. Louis was in the crease, except he wasn't. That was the first controversial call.

Then, on Buffalo's game winning goal, a Buffalo rusher was clearly offside by a full stride as Thomas Vanek came into the zone and fired a shot which rattled off Holmqvist, Shane O'Brien, and then in to the net.

We was robbed.

Rookie Mike Lundin was +1 in 19:29 with 2 shots on goal.

Mathieu Darche had 1 assist, 1 hit, and 1 shot in 12:39.
