Lightning Rally Past Detroit 3-2 in Overtime, Tie Series



    Better Sleep = Better Grades
    Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Nikita Kucherov (86) checks Detroit Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser (65) during the first period of Game 4 of a first-round NHL Stanley Cup hockey playoff series, Thursday, April 23, 2015, in Detroit.

    Tyler Johnson led a stirring Tampa Bay rally late in regulation, then scored 2:25 into overtime to lift the Lightning to a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night, evening their playoff series at 2-2.

    The Red Wings led 2-0 in the third period before Johnson scored with 5:26 remaining. He then assisted on Ondrej Palat's tying goal 77 seconds later.

    Early in the extra session, defenseman Victor Hedman led an odd-man rush from the right side and slid the puck across the goal mouth. It deflected ever so slightly off goalie Petr Mrazek, but Johnson was able to shoot into an open net from a tough angle for his fourth goal of the series.

    Gustav Nyquist and Joakim Andersson scored in the second period for Detroit. Andersson's goal came in fluky fashion when goalie Ben Bishop knocked it in off the crossbar.
