The Tampa Bay Lightning wanted to avoid heading to Pittsburgh down 3-1 in their best-of-seven series against the Penguins and they were able to do that.
With his team down big going into the third, Pens coach Mike Sullivan decided to shake things up by pulling Matt Murray and replacing him with Marc-Andre Fleury.
The move seemed to give the Penguins an immediate boost.
Phil Kessel (who else) got Pittsburgh on the board just 1:18 into the frame.
Kessel has picked up a goal in three straight games and he’s registered a point in each game of the Eastern Conference Final.
Despite their best effort to blow a four-goal lead, the Lightning managed to hold on for the 4-3 victory.
Game 5 goes Sunday night in Pittsburgh.
