Game 5: Lightning beat Penguins 4-3 in overtime

Posted at 11:32 PM, May 22, 2016

Tyler Johnson turned toward the net, wary of taking another shot to his already battered face.

The puck off Jason Garrison's stick found him anyway, and this time he didn't even feel it. He was too busy celebrating lifting the Tampa Bay Lightning to within one win away from a return trip to the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Botls return to the Bay Area today and is scheduled to land at 1:30 p.m. at the Tampa Jet Center.  The team is encouraging fans on social media to be there to greet the players.

Also, the Lightning are making Amalie Arena the place to be for Tuesday night's game six whether or not you have a ticket.  Once again Thunder Alley will host a free watch party for fans, with the broadcast set to be projected on a giant screen.  Fans will be allowed to start gathering in the plaza two hours before game time.
