St. Louis, Holmqvist lift Lightning in shootout

Jan 8, 2007 - 3:47 AM
PITTSBURGH (Ticker) -- Martin St. Louis showed why he is the top goal scorer in the NHL.

St. Louis scored the only goal of the shootout and goaltender Johan Holmqvist stayed perfect in shootouts as the Tampa Bay Lightning downed the Pittsburgh Penguins, 3-2.

The right wing, whose 26 goals are tied for the league lead, netted his tally in the third round of the shootout. He skated in, twisted into a backhand position and slid the puck between the pads of Marc-Andre Fleury in a highly unorthodox move.

Holmqvist denied Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby, the league's leading scorer, with a stick save to preserve the victory.

Holmqvist has denied all 10 shooters he has faced in shootouts this season.

Trailing 2-1, the Penguins tied the game on Mark Recchi's goal on the power play with 2:33 left in the third period. Crosby centered the puck to the low slot, where the puck deflected off the skates of Recchi and defenseman Cory Sarich past Holmqvist.

The goal was Recchi's 1,300th career point.
