Isles, Lightning seek control of series in pivotal Game 5

The disappointment of losing the last game is not difficult to digest for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The New York Islanders scored three times in the second period and then held on for the 3-2 victory on Saturday to even their Stanley Cup playoffs semifinal series at two wins apiece.

However, as the Lightning prepare to play host on Monday, it's with a valued element in their pocket, and not just because they are the defending champions.
