Steve Yzerman’s first foray against his former team featured a fantastic finish.

After blowing a two-goal lead in the third period, Tampa Bay managed to pick up a 4-3 shootout victory against Detroit at the Traverse City prospect tournament in Michigan. The Lightning won the shootout in the 16th round.

Richard Panik, the team’s second round pick in 2009, had a goal regulation and converted twice in the shootout. James Wright had a goal and assist while the team’s top pick in 2010, Brett Connolly,
added an assist to help improve Tampa Bay to 1-1. Dana Tyrell had the other Tampa Bay goal while Jaroslav Janus stopped 40 shots and 14-of-16 attempts in the shootout.

Tampa Bay is off until Tuesday when the Lightning face Dallas.

Defenseman Radko Gudas, a third-round pick in 2010 who recently signed a three-year entry level contract, sat out the game for precautionary reasons after suffering a mild upper body strain on Saturday.
