For the third time in four games, the Tampa Bay Lightning finished a game by shaking its head Tuesday night.
The Lightning lost, 4-1, to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
It was close for most of the game, and the Bolts tied the game at 1-1 in the third period. But after Toronto took the lead, it finished with two empty-net goals for the win.
Brian Boyle scored the only goal for Tampa Bay.
“It was disappointing,” said coach Jon Cooper. “One team came out to win the game. The other team came out as if it was going to win a hockey game.”
Tampa Bay, which has 12 games remaining, plays at Dallas on Thursday night.
