Stamkos scores in OT, Lightning come back to beat Capitals

WASHINGTON (AP) This was more like it for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

They needed to stage another comeback, but this time the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions followed a familiar recipe when it mattered most.

Andrei Vasilevskiy was perfect after allowing Alex Ovechkin's 733rd career goal, Steven Stamkos scored in overtime and Tampa Bay came back to beat the Washington Capitals 2-1 Saturday night.
