Lightning Beat Bruins 5-3 to Tie NHL Playoff Series at 2-2

May 22 (Bloomberg) -- The Tampa Bay Lightning rallied from a three-goal first-period deficit to beat the Boston Bruins 5-3 and tie their National Hockey League playoff series at two games apiece.

Teddy Purcell got two goals and Sean Bergenheim added another in the second period for the Lightning. Two goals from Patrice Bergeron and a third by Michael Ryder gave Boston the early advantage at St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Florida, yesterday.

Simon Gagne gave the Lightning the lead in the third period and Martin St. Louis capped the comeback with an empty-net goal in the final minute.

Game 5 is scheduled for tomorrow at TD Garden in Boston. The teams will return to Tampa for Game 6 two days later, with the Bruins hosting a decider, if necessary, on May 27.

The winner will advance to the Stanley Cup finals against the Vancouver Canucks or San Jose Sharks. That series resumes today in Vancouver, with the home team leading the best-of-seven series by two games to one.
