Falling behind Chicago and staging a comeback has become the norm for the Tampa Bay Lightning. Brayden Point scored a power-play goal 3:25 into overtime, and the Lightning rallied again to beat the Blackhawks 3-2 on Wednesday night. Point took a pass from Steven Stamkos while positioned near the post and put the winner past Corey Crawford and complete a three-goal rally. "To be down 2-0 to a team as good as Chicago, it was a great bounce-back performance," Stamkos said. Chicago was short-handed after Nick Schmaltz was sent off for slashing at 3:10. Tampa Bay got also goals from Ondrej Palat and Chris Kunitz, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 29 saves. Ryan Callahan had two assists. Patrick Kane scored twice and Crawford stopped 35 shots for the Blackhawks, who blew leads in losing both games between the teams last season.
