The game started quick with a powerplay goal by our long-haired golden boy Steven Stamkos just 28 seconds in:
That's number 41 fans.
Late in the 1st period Stamkos ups the lead by scoring his 42nd goal of the season:
This guy is unstoppable.
If I ever start tucking my t-shirt into my pants and wrapping my sweatshirt around my waist like the lady on the left there, please commit me for having no fashion decency.
40 seconds into the 2nd period Saku Koivu scores to make it 2-1
But a goal by Purcell two minutes later gives the Lightning the game winner and gives Purcell his 15th goal of the year:
It also gives him one of the most awkward victory photos ever.
Speaking of weird photos, this one of the guy working some voodoo magic on Niklas Hagman is a bit off.
Looks like he's trying to pet him. Creepy
Bobby Ryan scores to make it 3-2 late in the 2nd but they don't tie up the game in the third and the Lightning win 3-2.
