Cedric Paquette scored the deciding goal late in regulation and Ben Bishop battled in net as the Lightning willed their way to an all-important victory in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Bishop made 36 saves to backstop Tampa Bay to a 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center Monday night.
The Lightning netminder was a gametime decision after leaving Saturday's Game 2 victory twice during the third period. He appeared to be in pain, struggling to get to his skates on several occasions, but stayed in net and helped his team take a 2-1 series lead.
Ryan Callahan tallied a goal and an assist, Ondrej Palat also scored and Victor Hedman supplied two assists for the Lightning, who won their fourth straight road game.
Road teams that win Game 3 in the Stanley Cup Finals after the series is tied are 13-0.
Brad Richards and Brandon Saad each scored for the Blackhawks, while Corey Crawford stopped 29 shots in defeat.
The series continues Wednesday with Game 3 in Chicago.
