January 12, 2019 - 7:07 pm

It took less than 30 seconds for the Tampa Bay Lightning to take a 1-0 lead thanks to an offensive zone face-off win. Brayden Point's 29th goal of the year gave the visitors the lead. Nikita Kucherov and Tyler Johnson were credited with the assists on the goal.

Sam Reinhart answered for Buffalo five minutes later to tie the game at 1-1. Jack Eichel created a screen in front of Louis Domingue to help create the score. Jeff Skinner and Rasmus Dahlin assisted on the game-tying goal. 

The Sabres had a 5-on-3 power play for more than a half minute, but failed to score. Steven Stamkos and Yanni Gourde were both in the penalty box, giving the blue and gold the two man advantage.
