Pittsburgh 3, Tampa Bay 3 (OT)

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Defenseman Dan Boyle scored a power-play goal midway through the third period Saturday night to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning into a 3-3 tie with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Tampa Bay, which finished 13th or worse in the Eastern Conference each of the last five seasons, came from behind three times to remain unbeaten at 3


1-0 -- the best start in its 11-year history.

With Pittsburgh's Ian Moran serving a holding penalty, Boyle snuck in from the point and wristed a shot from the right faceoff circle that knuckled past goaltender Johan Hedberg to forge a 3-3 tie.

Ben Clymer and Martin St. Louis also scored for the Lightning, while Nikolai Khabibulin rebounded from a shaky performance on Friday, holding the Penguins to three goals on 29 shots.

Mario Lemieux assisted on Pittsburgh's first tally, giving him a point on seven consecutive Penguins' goals.
