Lightning go ahead in series

Ryan Callahan, Ondrej Palat and Paquette were all on target for the Lightning, with Victor Hedman providing two assists and Ben Bishop making 36 saves to lift their side into a 2-1 lead in the series following their second straight win.

Callahan opened the scoring in the first period but Brad Richards levelled matters a few minutes later with a powerplay goal before Brandon Saad put the Blackhawks in front early in the third period.

Palat equalised a matter of seconds later and though the game appeared set for overtime, Paquette scored with just over three minutes remaining as Tampa Bay claimed victory and the momentum in the series.
