Jason Garrison scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and the Tampa Bay Lightning held on for a 4-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

There were no late heroics for Chicago in this game, despite Tampa starting goaltender Ben Bishop leaving the game in the third period and Andrei Vasilevskiy taking over.

The 20-year-old Russian rookie held firm in the high-stakes situation, stopping all five shots he faced in just over nine minutes of play to help the Lightning even this best-of-seven series at 1-1.

Tyler Johnson, Cedric Paquette and Nikita Kucherov also scored for the Bolts, who also got a pair of assists from Victor Hedman and Ryan Callahan in the victory.

Brent Seabrook, Andrew Shaw and Teuvo Teravainen all scored for the Blackhawks, who scored a pair of goals late in the third period on Wednesday to win the series opener.

Corey Crawford stopped 20 shots in the loss.

The series now switches to Chicago for the next two games with Game 3 set for Monday night.
