2011 NHL Playoffs: Sean Bergenheim Scores To Send Lightning, Penguins To Overtime

Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Pittsburgh Penguins will be decided in overtime. Sean Bergenheim’s score off a goal-mouth scramble with 3:17 left in regulation tied the game 2-2, leading to the first extra session of the series.

Pittsburgh had been holding off the Lightning’s attempts to tie the game for most of the third, but finally Tampa Bay crashed the net and scored a true “playoffs” kind of goal. Pavel Kubina’s shot from the point was stopped by Marc-Andre Fleury, and all three forwards moved in to get to the rebound. Martin St. Louis’s follow-up didn’t get through, but Bergenheim found the loose puck and roofed it over a somersaulting Fleury to even the score.

Dwayne Roloson has made 38 saves through three periods, and the Lightning have been outshot 40-22 in the game. One thing to watch will be if Penguins forward Maxime Talbot returns. With a minute to play, he was leveled by Eric Brewer while playing a loose puck in the corner. No penalty was called (the hit did not appear to be dirty), and Talbot was down on the ice for a short time before skating off to the locker room, appearing woozy.
