16-round shootout settles Tampa Bay Lightning's 4-3 victory over Red Wings



Granted it was only a game at a preseason prospects tournament, but Steve Yzerman's first matchup against his former team was a victory for the Tampa Bay Lightning, 4-3 over the Red Wings. The game was decided by a 16-round shootout that Tampa Bay won 3-2.

It was the first time the two organizations met since Yzerman, who spent 27 years with Detroit as a player and executive, took the job as Lightning general manager.

Dana Tyrell, James Wright and Richard Panik scored for the Lightning as regulation play ended in a 3-3 tie. In the shootout, Panik scored twice and Matt Butcher got the winner. Lightning goalie Jaroslav Janus made 40 saves in regulation and overtime as the Red Wings had a 43-31 shot advantage, and stopped 14 more shots in the shootout.

The Lightning (1-1) faces the Stars at 3 p.m. Tuesday.
