TAMPA BAY (WREX) -

The Chicago Blackhawks fought back to tie Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final in the third period, but the Tampa Bay Lightning responded on a key power play to win 4-3 and tie the series at one game apiece. Game 3 is Monday night in Chicago.

Teuvo Teravainen scored his second goal of the Final in the second period after he tied Game 1 in the Hawks' third period comeback victory. The Bolts took a 3-2 lead before Brent Seabrook's early third period tally, his seventh of the postseason, tied the game at 3-3. Patrick Sharp took two consecutive costly penalties, leading to Jason Garrison's man-advantage score that proved to be the game-winner.

Corey Crawford made 20 saves in the loss. Ben Bishop registered 21 saves, but left the game twice, leaving Andrei Vasilevskiy to step in for spurts in the third period. He made five saves and earned the victory.
