It must have been turn-back-the-clock night Thursday because both veteran goaltenders looked a lot like the guys who led their respective teams to the Stanley Cup Final.

At one end was former Lightning Stanley Cup winning goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin turning aside several Tampa Bay chances for Edmonton, while Dwayne Roloson, who led Edmonton to the 2006 Stanley Cup Final, played his best game in months for Tampa Bay.

And it only seemed fitting that the pair of goaltenders, with a combined age of 81, continued that pace through 65 minutes and six rounds of a shootout before Roloson came out on top in Tampa Bay's 3-2 victory in front of an announced crowd of 17,893 at The Forum.

Tom Pyatt had the first two-goal game of his career while Roloson finished with 34 saves and stopped four of the six shooters in the shootout. Steven Stamkos and Marty St. Louis each scored in the shootout while Teddy Purcell clinched the victory in the sixth round.

The victory was the second in the past eight games for Tampa Bay, which jumped Toronto into 12th place in the Eastern Conference standings, but remain eight points out of a playoff spot with nine games remaining.

Roloson refused to claim any sense of personal satisfaction in playing perhaps his best game in four months. He allowed fewer than three goals in a start for the first time since Nov. 17 when he stopped 33 shots in a 5-1 victory against Pittsburgh. And it didn't matter that it came against a team he nearly helped lead to a Stanley Cup championship seven years ago.
