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

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.

— Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin on linemate Steven Samkos
