Sport: The Panthers have been by far the best team in the series so far and led 3-0 in games before tonight’s game. On Sunday night, however, it was the Lightning who drew the longest straw when they won 6–3 at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay.

Steven Stamkos and Brandon Hagel each scored twice for the Lightning, while Brayden Point and Nicholas Paul also added a goal each.

For the Panthers, it was Sam Reinhart, Carter Verheaghe and Swedish Oliver Ekman-Larsson who made their mark on the scoring list.

Lilleberg got 19 minutes and two seconds on the ice, but did not score any goals.

The Lightning’s victory thus means that the teams must at least play a fifth game to decide the winner of the best-of-seven series. That match will be played on the night of Tuesday Norwegian time.
