Tampa Bay also got a goal from Vladislav Nam- estnikov. Sam Reinhart scored h is first NHL goal for the S abres, who have scored once in three of their five games this season. Tampa Bay defense- man Victor Hedman, hurt when he was checked into the boards by Dallas’ Jamie Benn in Thursday’s 5-3 loss to the Stars, didn’t p lay. The team said Hed- m an, who underwent concussion protocols, is day to day with an unspecified injury. Bishop won his 84th g ame with the Lightning, b reaking a tie with Nikolai Khabibulin after making 31saves. Chad Johnson made 20 saves for Buffalo. K illorn made it 2-1 f rom the low-right circle during a power play. After the defending Eastern Conference champions had been out- played for most of the first 30 minutes, Namest- nikov got the Lightning even at 1by skating in a lone on Johnson and c hipping the puck over the goalie with 6:19 left in the second. Reinhart opened the scoring 2:52 into the first b y beating beat Bishop f rom in-close off a pass from behind the net by Tyler Ennis.

LIGHTNING 2, SABRES 1 AP Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop makes a save on a shot by Buffalo Sabres center Ryan O'Reilly during the third period of Saturday’s game. Bishop, Killorn key T B win over Sabres MARK DIDTLER ASSOCIATED PRESS Todd Skirving scored a pair of early first-period goals just 25 seconds apart. They also outshot the Falcons 16-8 in the third period. But the Falcons used crisp, quick passing to set u p Kevin Dufour for the tying goal with just 3:04 r emaining in the third period. Both goalies — Mike Rotolo for RIT and Chris N ell for Bowling Green — m ade sure it stayed 2-2 through the five-minute o vertime. And, instead of a downtown hockey celebration f or 10,566 fans at sold-out Blue Cross Arena at the Rochester Community War Memorial, RIT’s Brick City Homecoming game ended without a winner. “It’s frustrating; you never want a tie game,” said Skirving, a junior forward who scored just four goals in 39 games l ast season. “You always want to win. If you don’t w ant to win, I don’t know why you’re playing. “But we can take a lot o f positives from that g ame.” That’s something the T igers couldn’t say on opening weekend. They lost 6-0 at Clarkson on O ct. 9 and 5-1at St. Lawrence the next night. That’s the worst two- game goal differential since RIT became an NCAA Division I program in 2005-06. So after a week of high-energy practices, the Tigers responded. They generated plenty of offensive-zone riding t ime. They held the Falcons to 29 shots. Rotolo p layed very well in goal, with little to no chance to stop either shot that beat h im. “ I thought we actually outplayed them,” Rotolo s aid. The annual Brick City game has not been kind to R IT. Fans always flock to the one off-campus home game of the regular season; this was the sixth consecutive sellout for the homecoming game. But the Tigers are just 25-2, and winless in the past four (0-3-1). “I’ve never won a (Brick City) game here,” senior defenseman Alexa nder Kuqali said. “But if we keep doing what we d id tonight, I’m not going to be worried.” KEVINO@gan- n ADRIAN KRAUS RIT's Todd Skirving, right, celebrates his second goal of the first period at the Blue Cross Arena on Saturday as part of RIT's Brick City Homecoming Weekend.
