PITTSBURGH, April 15 (UPI) -- Eric Brewer scored 2 minutes into the game and added two assists Friday, helping Tampa Bay even its first-round series against Pittsburgh with a 5-1 win.

Vincent Lecavalier and Nate Thompson stunned the Penguins with two more first-period tallies and the fifth-seeded Lightning cruised to a victory, evening their opening-round Eastern Conference series with Pittsburgh at 1-1.

Martin St. Louis added a second-period tally and Mattias Ohlund chipped in with an empty-netter for the Bolts.

Dwyane Roloson earned the victory by turning aside 35-of-36 shots, making 13 saves in the second period and 14 in the third while blanking the Penguins on seven power-play opportunities.

Craig Adams scored and Marc-Andre Fleury made 16 saves for fourth-seeded Pittsburgh.
