Ben Bishop helps Tampa Bay Lightning rally for 3-2 win over Chicago Blackhawks

CHICAGO - Valtteri Filppula scored in the shootout and the Tampa Bay Lightning rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Ben Bishop made 37 saves in his first start for the season for Tampa Bay, and then denied each of Chicago's three shooters in the tiebreaker. Filppula beat Corey Crawford into the right side of the net in the first round.

Tampa Bay looked listless before Martin St. Louis and Teddy Purcell scored midway through the third period, tying it at 2.

It was the first victory of the season for the Lightning, who opened with a 3-1 loss at Boston.

Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad scored for Chicago, which outshot Tampa Bay 39-16.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
