Blackhawks Vs. Lightning Score Update: Teams Combine For Eight— Eight!— Goals In Second

Sometimes a hockey game finishes regulation with zero total goals, and other times the two teams combine to score eight goals in one period. What was a scoreless tie going into the second period in Tampa is now still a tie, although the scoreboard looks quite a bit different at 4-4.

Tampa's Steven Stamkos (this will be a theme) started the scoring off 15 seconds into the second with his seventh goal of the season. 50 seconds later, Chicago's Patrick Sharp tied the game at one with a power play goal, which was his fourth of the season. Less than four minutes after that, Tampa's Brett Connolly lit the lamp for the second time this season to put the Lightning up 2-1. Less than two minutes after that goal, Chicago's Marian Hossa tied the game at two with his seventh goal of the season. Less than a minute later the Blackhawks took the lead for the first time with a goal from Dan Carcillo, his first of the year. A mere 12 seconds later— yes, twelve— Sharp scored for the fifth time this season and second time in the period to put Chicago up 4-2. Not to be outdone, Stamkos waited an entire 4:23 to bring Tampa within a goal; it was his second of the period and eighth of the year. And then finally, with the Tampa on the power play, Stamkos made it rain (hats) in Tampa with 33 seconds left on the clock after he scored his third goal of the period, which tied the game at 4.

As we exhale during intermission, fans in Tampa can't believe their luck, and rummage under their seats for any potential stray $100 bills.
