Lightning win 5-4, force game seven



The rallying cry of the Tampa Bay Lightning once again came to the forefront in a game six that was both wildly unpredictable and wildly exciting.

The Lightning hung on to win, 5-4, forcing a game seven Friday night in Boston. The Lightning’s biggest stars were their best players on this night; Marty St. Louis, Vincent Lecavalier and Steven Stamkos all combined for 8 points.

“It was a great game,” Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier said. “We never quit. We didn’t want to stay on our heels in the third. Even though we had the lead, we kept on going and kept on pressing. I thought that we played pretty well defensively at the end of the third period.”
