Hedman, who is from Ornskoldsvik, Sweden, converted a power-play slap shot 1:58 into the second period, lifting the Lightning to a 2-1 lead.

Marcus Johansson, another Swede, was in the penalty box when Hedman scored his third goal of the season.

Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart each had a goal and an assist for Buffalo, which has dropped five in a row. Carter Hutton made 35 saves.

The two sold-out games in Stockholm's Ericsson Globe were part of the 2019 NHL Global Series.
