* Lightning fall, 3-2, to Flames
- Otto scores on 1st shot of extra period
Joel Otto scored on the first shot in overtime to give the Calgary Flames a
3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night.
Otto took a pass from Theoren Fleury deep in Tampa Bay's zone and beat
goaltender Pat Jablonski with a shot over his glove just one minute into the
Calgary's Robert Reichel had tied it with only 70 seconds left in the third
period, slapping in the rebound of a shot by Sergei Makarov.
It appeared that a strange goal by Michel Mongeau would stand up for Tampa Bay.
Calgary defenseman Kevin Dahl inadvertently banged in a pass from behind the
net by the Lightning center at 11:13 of the third period.
The goal, Mongeau's first of the season, capped what was mostly a frustrating
night for Flames goalie Mike Vernon.
The expansion club rained 35 shots on Vernon. Calgary managed 31 against
Gary Suter also scored for Calgary. Rob DiMaio scored the other goal for Tampa
Bay. A shot by the 24-year-old Calgary native seemed to have been handled by
Vernon, but the puck trickled over the line.
