Video- Jonathan Drouin Shines In OT

from Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times,

It was a dazzling 47 seconds, with the puck on the Lightning wing's stick for most of it.

"I was gassed," Drouin said.

Drouin was also determined. With the Lightning blowing a two-goal lead for the second straight night — this time with 41 seconds left — it desperately needed the second point. Drouin made sure of it, his slick steal-and-deke display on the winner lifting Tampa Bay to a 3-2 victory over the Avalanche at the Pepsi Center.

"He wasn't going to be denied on that shift," goalie Ben Bishop said. "He was a man on a mission.''

Said Tyler Johnson: "A pretty heroic effort."
