BOSTON (AP) -- Brad Marchand scored a tiebreaking goal on the power play with 2:16 left in the third period, completing Boston's comeback from a 2-0 deficit with a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning that extended the Bruins' winning streak to six straight. Marchand 11th goal of the season came late in a double-minor high sticking penalty to Brendan Mikkelson. It was the second power-play goal of the game for the Bruins, who had not scored at home with a man advantage entering the game. Tyler Seguin also scored on the power play for the Bruins 3:22 into the second period, pulling Boston within 2-1 after slow start. Rich Peverley tied it just 1:17 later with an even-strength goal and the score stood until Patrice Bergeron and Marchand broke free for a 2-on-1 late in the third. Bergeron timed the pass to his left perfectly and all Marchand had to do was direct it at the net, where goalie Mathieu Garon was caught on the wrong side. It was a fitting end to a game full of special teams opportunities. The Bruins were called for 10 penalties and the Lightning had seven, including Mikkelson's high stick on Milan Lucic with 5:39 left in the third. The Lightning nearly had the penalty killed when Bergeron and Marchand got behind the defense for the winning goal. Steven Stamkos and Alexander Killorn scored for Tampa Bay, both on power plays in the first period. The Lightning failed to score on six other power plays and finished with just 22 shots on goal. Anton Khudobin had 20 saves as Boston starter Tuukka Rask got the day off with rival Montreal coming to Boston on Sunday. Garon finished with 24 saves. The Bruins were called for six penalties in the first period and Tampa Bay capitalized on two of them. Stamkos put the Lightning up 1-0 on a wrist shot 5:32 into the game off passes from Teddy Purcell and Marc-Andre Bergeron. Purcell got another assist when Alexander Killorn beat Khudobin with a backhander for a 2-0 lead with 11:22 left in the first. Purcell took a pass from Martin St. Louis, crossed the blue line and headed straight up the middle before dropping a pass behind to Killorn, who got Khudobin off balance and tapped it in for his third goal of the season. Seguin got a rare power play goal for the Bruins on a one-timer from the left circle 3:22 into the second. It was the first power-play goal at home for the Bruins and just the eighth time they scored in 57 chances overall this season. Dougie Hamilton and David Krejci assisted on the goal. The Bruins got an obvious emotional boost by finally scoring on Garon, who had just stopped a flurry of good scoring chances. Peverley scored again for the Bruins just over a minute later to tie it at 2-all on another one-timer from the left circle. Adam McQuaid surprised the Lightning with a crossing pass from the blue line to the opposite corner, where Peverley fired off the shot before Garon had a much of a chance to get across. NOTES: The Bruins improved to 6-1-1 at home. ... Stamkos extended his point streak to nine straight games. ... The Bruins and Lightning will meet one more time during the regular season when the Lightning return to Boston on April 25. The game was scheduled for Feb. 9 but postponed because of a blizzard. ... Peverley's goal was his 199th career point. Lighting LW Benoit Pouliot left the game with an upper body injury after taking a hard hit from Dennis Seidenberg with 9:15 left in the first period. Seidenberg was called for boarding on the play.
