Lightning expect Penguins to rebound from rout
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning found a way to keep their first-round playoff series against Pittsburgh alive, playing with a sense of urgency that was absent in falling to the brink of elimination against the Penguins.
The challenge is to do it again in Game 6 on Monday night. Another Lightning victory would send the Eastern Conference matchup back to Pittsburgh for a seventh game on Wednesday night.
The visiting team has won four consecutive games in a series that the Penguins lead 3-2 after being trounced 8-2 at home in Game 5 on Saturday.
