Lightning strike 5 times to overcome Bruins

It was a tale of two games. Well, almost. The Tampa Bay Lightning used a 5 goal barrage to stage a furious comeback and beat the Boston Bruins 5-3 in the Stanley Cup Eastern Conference Finals.

Lightning fans thought the game might be over when starting goaltender Dwayne Roloson was pulled after allowing 3 goals on the first 9 shots of the game. But after Teddy Purcell scored two second period goals to tie things at 3, Simon Gagne dropped one in to give Tampa Bay the lead and eventually the win.

The win ties the best of 7 series at two games apiece. Game 5 is Monday night back in Boston.
