The Los Angeles Kings fell 2-1 in a shootout against the Tampa Bay Lightning at Amalie Arena on Wednesday night.
The game was scoreless up until the third period.
At 5:57 in the third, Tyler Johnson scored for the Lightning to put them ahead 1-0. At 14:37 Milan Lucic tied the score for the Kings. The assists on Lucic’s goal were credited to his line mates Tyler Toffoli and Jeff Carter.
The game headed to overtime then a shootout, where the Lightning’s Valtteri Filppula scored the deciding goal.
“[Bishop] played well. He’s a big body, he stood his ground [and] didn’t give the shooters a lot of net to shoot at,” Lucic said to NHL.com. “Made some good post-to-post saves, and that’s why he’s one of the premier goalies in the League. But no matter how good the goalies play, you have to try to find a way to get a few past them.”
The Kings, now 13-8-1, were 2-2-1 on their five-game road trip.Read more... Join the Conversation...
