Sidney Crosby beat Andrei Vasilevskiy from the circle 40 seconds into overtime, and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Monday night to leave the Eastern Conference finals tied at a game apiece.

Crosby, who hadn't scored since the opening round against the New York Rangers, took a feed from Bryan Rust and buried it for his fourth goal of the postseason. Matt Cullen and Phil Kessel also scored for the Penguins.

Matt Murray overcame a shaky start to finish with 19 saves as Pittsburgh improved to 3-1 in overtime during the playoffs.

Anton Stralman scored in his return to the lineup from a fractured left leg and Brian Drouin picked up his second goal in as many games, but the Lightning lost for just the third time in 12 postseason games.
