And, we’re headed to overtime.
The Penguins officially surrendered their two goal lead to the Lightning in the waning moments of the third period. The teams head into the locker room tied 2-2.
Sean Bergenheim’s finish after a goalmouth scramble with 3:17 remaining evened the scores up after an evenly played period. Shots in the third were 10-8 in favor of the Penguins, making the total in regulation 40-22 in the Penguins favor.
The Pens, however, will have to deal with the potential absence of Maxime Talbot in extra play following a hard hit from Eric Brewer late in the third. Talbot had to be helped off of the ice and his availability is unknown.
