NHL: Tampa Bay 4, Vancouver 2

Jan. 2, 2014 at 1:16 AM   |   Comments

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 2 (UPI) -- Nikita Kucherov scored the go-ahead goal with just three seconds left in the middle period Wednesday and Tampa Bay went on to defeat Vancouver 4-2.

The Lightning emerged from a wild second period with a 3-2 lead and Alex Killorn padded that advantage by deflecting a shot past Eddie Lack 7:28 into the third.

Tampa Bay had lost two in a row, but ended that brief skid in the opener of a four-game road trip through Canada.

Valtteri Flippula and Tyler Johnson scored 20 seconds apart in the second period to give the Lightning a 2-1 lead, but Zac Dalpe then tied it with his first goal of the season and the sixth of his four-year career.

Kucherov put Tampa Bay in front with a power-play tally.

Ben Bishop made 28 saves to get the victory. Lack allowed four goals on 33 shots.
