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.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
