This was the final game for both teams before the Olympic break, which could help the Lightning, who are without injured centres Steven Stamkos and Valtteri Filppula . The goal gave Alfredsson 1,143 NHL points, which moved him Nicklas Lidstrom to become the second-highest scoring player from Sweden.
