Duncan Keith (Michigan State) assisted on the go-ahead goal for the host Chicago Blackhawks in the third period—but the Tampa Bay Lightning responded with the tying marker just 13 seconds later, and then potted the game-winner with just over three minutes remaining in regulation Monday in a 3-2 win in Game Three of the Stanley Cup Final.
Ondrej Palat tied the contest for Tampa Bay 4:27 into the final frame, before Cedric Paquette chipped home the winner 12 minutes later. Ryan Callahan scored the Lightning’s first goal, while Brad Richards (power play) and Brandon Saad connected for Chicago on the night.
Chicago defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk (New Hampshire) played his first game for the Blackhawks since injuring his knee in November. Ben Bishop (Maine) finished with 36 saves in net for the Lightning, who won for the 8th time in 11 road games this spring. Game 4 of the NHL's marquee series is Wednesday (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN) in Chicago.
