Tampa, FL. -- After the Washington Capitals fought back from a two-goal deficit to tie Tampa Bay and send the game to overtime, Lightning coach Guy Boucher had a message for his team.

"I told them to stay in the moment," Boucher said. "It's not what just happened; it's what we're going to do next."

For Steven Stamkos, the moment came at 2:45 of the overtime when he scored his League-leading 33rd goal to give Tampa Bay a 4-3 victory on Tuesday night, extending the Lightning's winning streak to a season-high five games.
