Recap


Lightning 3, Blackhawks 2 (SO): Ben Bishop made 37 saves and stopped all three shootout attempts as visiting Tampa Bay rallied from two goals down in the third period to beat Chicago.

Valtteri Filppula scored the only shootout goal, making a nifty deke and flipping the puck into the open left side of the net on the forehand in the first round. Martin St. Louis, who also had an assist, and Teddy Purcell scored 1:43 apart midway through the third period for the Lightning, who did not register a shot in the opening session.

Conn Smythe Trophy winner Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad scored second-period goals for the Blackhawks, who have lost four straight meetings with Tampa Bay – two in the shootout. Corey Crawford made 14 saves and recorded an assist for reigning Stanley Cup champion Chicago.

Tampa Bay attempted nine shots without getting one on net, but Bishop turned aside all 12 he faced as the teams played a scoreless first period. Kane changed that 59 seconds into the second, when he flipped in a rebound from a bad angle at the right side of the net.

Chicago made it 2-0 when defenseman Nick Leddy’s dump-in toward the right corner deflected to the front of the net, which was vacated by Bishop, and Saad knocked it in for a power-play goal at 9:14 of the second. St. Louis backhanded home a rebound with 9:52 left in the third and Purcell beat Crawford from the right faceoff circle during a man advantage to tie it.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Tampa Bay had a 29-19 advantage in hits, with LW Pierre-Cedric Labrie leading the way for the Lightning with eight in 8:46 of ice time. … Chicago D Mike Kostka, who dressed after being a healthy scratch in the season opener, played for Lightning coach Jon Cooper with the Calder Cup champion Norfolk Admirals in 2011-12. … Lightning D Sami Salo returned to the lineup after missing Thursday's 3-1 loss at Boston with an upper-body injury.
