Martin St. Louis netted the winner with 9.8 seconds left in the overtime period for the come-from-behind win after the Leafs were penalized for too many men on the ice.


Steven Stamkos and Ryan Malone also scored for the Bolts.


The Leafs scored at 7:05 in the second period for a 1-0 lead, but the Bolts tied it at 1 with 8:14 left. The teams traded goals in the third period to take the game into overtime, where the Bolts were able to win it.


On Saturday, the Lightning won their second straight game since their thrashing by the New York Rangers. The Lightning beat the Atlanta Thrashers 2-1 in a shootout after a scoreless overtime period.


Antero Niittymaki continued to dominate the Thrashers by stopping 37 of 38 shots, and teammate Jeff Halpern scored the goal in the fifth round of the shootout to put the Bolts on top.


Steven Stamkos scored on a power play to tie the game just minutes after Atlanta jumped out to a 1-0 lead, and the Lightning killed five penalties, including one with just over a minute to play in overtime.
