How much difference is there between winning and losing? Between success and failure? Between a keeper of a game and a lost cause?

For the Lightning, the answer is 27 seconds.

Asked again, it is 64 seconds.

As quick as two finger-snaps, the Lightning pulled out a game against the Nashville Predators on Friday night. Steven Stamkos scored to tie the game with 27 seconds left in regulations, and Tyler Johnson scored 64 seconds in overtime to lead the win.

It was the Lightning's ninth straight win at home, but the team was riding a two-game losing streak from its road trip to Canada.
