It was pretty cool to see in a game.”Koekkoek snapped a 16-game goal drought and cut the deficit to 2-1 from the left circle at 14:21 of the second.Tampa Bay outshot the Predators 17-4 in the period.“The ice was lopsided at that point,” Laviolette said.Johansen made another backhand pass to set up Jarnkrok’s goal with 3:18 to play.“They made us pay for the looks that we gave them,” Lightning defenseman Ryan McDonagh said.Salomaki added an empty-netter.Nashville has earned a point in 13 of its last 14 games (11-1-2) against the Lightning.NOTES: Tampa Bay D Victor Hedman (shoulder) sat out his third straight game and could miss games at Montreal and Ottawa this weekend.
