Lightning Blackhawks Hockey

Tampa Bay's Alex Killorn beats the clock as well as Chicago goalie Kevin Lankinen and defenseman Adam Boqvist for a goal with one-tenth of a second left in overtime Thursday to give the Lightning a 3-2 win over the Blackhawks.

Through Friday's games. Last week's rankings in parentheses.

1. Toronto Maple Leafs. Allowed one goal in three-game sweep in Edmonton. (1)

2. Tampa Bay Lightning. Stunned Hawks on Killorn OT goal with 0.1 seconds left. (3)

3. Vegas Golden Knights. Pacioretty singes Sharks for third OT winner of the season (4)

4. Florida Panthers. No. 1,000 for Yandle set for Sunday vs. Carolina. (2)

5. Carolina Hurricanes. "Storm Surge" comes out as fans make their return. (6)

6. Boston Bruins. A shame that a great video tribute to Chara came in empty arena. (5)

7. New York Islanders. They lock games down against everybody, not just Sabres. (14)
