The Lightning led the back and forth game 3-2 before Brad Marchand tied the game at three when he scored his second goal of the night for Boston with 3:58 remaining in the third period. Blake Coleman scored twice, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 22 saves for Tampa Bay, which is 4-0-0 in overtime this postseason.
