Lightning Vs. Penguins Final Score: Tampa Bay Falls To Pittsburgh, 4-2

The Tampa Bay Lightning held a 2-1 lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins after the first period, but the Penguins came roaring back in the second period. Just 56-seconds into the second period Chris Kunitz picked up a goal, assisted by Kris Letang and Brent Johnson, that tied the game at 2-2. Just a few minutes later, the Penguins took 3-2 lead on a Letang goal that was assisted by Kunitz and James Neal.

The Penguins weren't done scoring in the second period however, as Evgeni Malkin scored his 32nd goal of the season to give the Penguins a 4-2 lead over the Lightning, which proved to be enough to secure the victory. The Lightning couldn't get anything past goal Brent Johnson after the first period and found themselves doubling up the Penguins in penalty minutes.
