Some games, you win by skill. Some games, you win by smarts. Some games, you win by muscle.

Then there are games like this one, which you find lying in a field of four-leaf clovers.

It was 2-1, and Tampa Bay has this to say:


There has rarely been a break as big as the Lightning got to score its second goal, and that one was bigger than the one it got on its first. Together, they had to have the Carolina Hurricanes wondering if the Lightning's next goal was going to drop from the rafters, bounce off someone's skull and wind up in the net.
