It’s over
Much to the relief of the Penguins, the final horn went off at the Consol Energy Center, ending an 8-2 nightmare. Two goals (and 3 points) for Steven Stamkos, two for Simon Gagne, two for Pavel Kubina. Four power-play goals. A perfect effort by the Lightning's penalty-killers. All in all, a near-perfect day for the Bolts -- and a nightmare for the Penguins, who had hoped to close out the series in front of their home fans.

So it's back to the St. Pete Times Forum for Game 6 on Monday for the Pens and Bolts -- and on to the Rangers and Caps for Act II of our 12 Hours of Hockey.
Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
