Official Scoresheet | Official Super Stats

By Jason Lockhart

Filip Kuba scored 55 seconds into overtime off a deflection from Eric Perrin to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 4-3 overtime victory over the Islanders, Tuesday night at the St. Pete Times Forum.

The Lightning dominated the shots category 40-24. In his first start in three games, Rick DiPietro did all he could do to keep the Islanders in the game, stopping 36 shots. Johan Holmqvist made 21 saves for the win.

DiPietro stood on his head stopping 16 shots in the first period, but couldn't get over in time to stop Perrin's deflection at 9:20 of the period. Jason Ward backhanded the puck to Perrin, who re-directed it into the goal with his skate.

The Lightning took a 2-0 lead, 1:50 into the second period off a wrist shot from Vincent Lecavalier.

Richard Zednik cut the lead to 2-1 off a faceoff in the offensive zone. Zednik corralled the puck off the draw and in one motion fired it past Holmqvist.

It took a shorthanded opportunity for the Islanders to tie the game at two. Richard Park beat Holmqvist with a wrist shot with 9:47 to go in the second period.

The Islanders took their first lead of the game when Viktor Kozlov scored from the slot with 2:36 remaining in the second period.

Ward tied the game at three off a rebound, 4:21 into the third period.

Kuba then tallied the game-winner off a re-direction in the Islanders' crease in the opening minute of the extra frame.

The Islanders take on the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday at the Nassau Coliseum.
