Ondrej Palat scored a power-play goal for the Lightning to tie the game at 1-1 at 8:39 of the second period, and Matthew Carle scored 11:36 into the third to give the Lightning hope for a comeback. Steven Stamkos assisted on both goals.

Tampa Bay had a goal waived off in the second period after referees ruled goaltender interference on Alex Killorn.

Stamkos left the game in the second period after taking a knee to the back of the head, but the Lightning captain returned to the ice early in the third.

Anders Lindback stopped 28 shots for Tampa Bay.
