Lightning Vs. Rangers: Tampa Bay Comes Back Against New York To End Losing Streak

Dominic Moore led a come from behind shootout victory, ending the Lightning's five game losing streak with a win in Madison Square Garden.

The Tampa Bay Lightning ended their five game losing streak on Thursday night with a come from behind shootout win over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. After a disheartening 5-1 loss out on Long Island on Tuesday night, the Bolts bounced back on a Dominic Moore shorthanded goal to send it into overtime.

A Ryan Malone unassisted goal combined with Moore's shorthanded effort to give Tampa enough to get to extra time in a penalty filled game. A total of 18 penalties were issued in the second period alone, as things got more than chippy between the two clubs.

Moore did it all by himself to end the losing streak, not only adding the evening goal, but also clinching Tampa's 1-0 shootout win. Moore beat dynamic Ranger goalie Henrik Lundqvist on a wrister from 14 feet. It was a huge come back for Tampa against a chippy and succesful team in a rowdy building.

They continue their road trip with another game against the Eastern Conference elite, as they take on the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night.
