Lightning carry confidence into Game 3 vs. Stars

Having seen their three-goal edge whittled to a 3-2 lead and a much-needed insurance marker called back because of an offside play, the Tampa Bay Lightning could have crumbled in the final stages of Monday's Stanley Cup Final clash with the Dallas Stars.

Instead, the Lightning buckled down to hang onto a clutch victory. Tampa Bay evened the best-of-seven series at 1-1.

The Stars managed only two shots on goal in the final 14:33 while trying to push for an overtime-forcing equalizer.
