Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh tied, 2-2, through first OT
The Tampa Bay Lightning and Pittsburgh Penguins have now completed four periods here at St. Pete Times Forum and remain in a 2-2 deadlock.

The Penguins, who outshot the Lightning in the first overtime, 11-8, hold a 51-30 advantage for the game. Sean Bergenheim's first goal of the playoffs off a mad scramble in the slot at 16:43 had pulled Tampa Bay into a 2-2 tie. Defenseman Pavel Kubina made the play happen when his shot from the right point triggered a flurry of activity in the crease. Martin St. Louis took a few pokes, but it was Bergenheim knocking home his first career playoff goal.

Lightning goalie Dwayne Roloson has 49 saves and Penguins keeper Marc-Andre Fleury turned back 28 shots.

Roloson made a splendid stop on Arron Asham with 8:18 left in the first OT off a tip in the slot to keep the game knotted at 2-all.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
