Steven Stamkos posted his fourth career hat trick, Vincent Lecavalier scored at 4:06 in overtime and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-4 on Friday night. Stamkos had three goals during a wild second period that featured each team scoring four times. Lecavalier scored the game-winner from the low slot off a pass from Martin St. Louis, who finished with three assists. Tampa Bay also got a goal from Brett Connolly. The Lightning have won four consecutive home games. Patrick Sharp scored twice for the Blackhawks, who had won three straight. Marian Hossa and Daniel Carcillo also scored. Stamkos' final goal, a left circle power-play shot with 32.2 seconds remaining in the second, tied it at 4. The center had pulled Tampa Bay within one at 11:45. The franchise record for goals in a game is four, set by Chris Kontos in Tampa Bay's first ever game, a 7-3 win over Chicago on Oct. 7, 1992. After Tampa Bay went up 2-1 on Connolly's goal at 4:55 of the second, the Blackhawks responded with three scores from Hossa (6:17), Carcillo (7:10) and Sharp (7:22) over a 1-minute, 5-second stretch. Hossa scored from the low left circle, Carcillo stopped a personal 28-game goal drought during a breakaway and Sharp beat Dwayne Roloson from the slot. Stamkos scored 15 seconds into the second on a rebound goal against Ray Emery before Sharp tied it with a power-play goal at 1:05. The Blackhawks went 0 for 19 with the man advantage in their previous five games and failed to convert their first opportunity Friday. Chicago right wing Patrick Kane had three assists. He has five assists and seven points over his last three games. NOTES: Blackhawks D Duncan Keith missed his second straight game due to a left hand injury. He could return early next week. ... Stamkos has seven goals and eight points in five games against Chicago. ... Hall of Fame goalie Tony Esposito, who led Chicago to the 1971 and 73 Stanley Cup finals, was at the game. ... Hossa has 24 goals and 57 points in 52 games against the Lightning.
