Point tied the game at 2./TIM WIRT

Thursday, 4 a.m.

As it turns out, the Lightning haven’t conquered that pesky little overtime problem after all.

The Bolts lost in extra time to Winnipeg Wednesday night, 3-2,

one night after winning their first overtime game of the year to Boston. The Bolts are now 1-6 in overtime, and they’ve managed just two shots on goal in the losses.

The first of those came against the Bruins on Monday night. The second came against the Oilers. This one didn’t go in.

The Bolts have won three of their last four games by coming behind in the third period. The Oilers game featured the Bolts coming back from 2-0, but they got off just four shots in the third.

Steven Stamkos scored his eighth goal, as did Brayden Point. The Bolts had a goal taken away in the second period due to goaltender interference.

Goaltender Jonas Johansson stopped 29 of 32 shots.

The Bolts play at the Carolina Hurricanes Friday night at 8 p.m.
