2. Spurgeon scores the game-winner

Minnesota's Jared Spurgeon scored the game's only goal 26 seconds into the second period on a shot from the right point that went through traffic and flew over the right pad of Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop. Charlie Coyle and Jason Pominville had assists on the goal.

3. Bertschy debuts

Christoph Bertschy had a nice introduction to his NHL career.

Bertschy, who was called up after Parise's injury, started on a line with Thomas Vanek and Erik Haula. NHL.com says Bertschy brought some extra energy to the game by throwing his body around on the forecheck and disrupting the Lightning's flow.
