* 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
extra period.

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
Jablonski.

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.

Vernon was outstanding, one of his best games of the year so far. He was pretty
well the only reason the Flames were still there at the end. He was about the
only player on the team that showed up to play. The rest of the team was so bad
they were booed lustily by the hometown fans at the end of the first and second
periods. They stunk out the joint, and were lucky to escape with the win. IMHO,
Tampa clearly deserved the win.
