New York, N.Y. -- Dominic Moore refused to call it redemption. But after a nightmare of a morning Thursday, he had to feel a little better about things when he left Madison Square Garden later that night.

Moore scored a shorthanded goal with 1:57 left in regulation to tie the game, then had the only goal during the shootout to give the Lightning a 3-2 victory against the New York Rangers.

During the Lightning's morning practice, an errant backhander from Moore caught Martin St. Louis in the face. Instead of playing in his 500th consecutive game, St. Louis spent the afternoon in the hospital and is out indefinitely with facial and nasal fractures.
