Maroon goal forces OT; Lightning, Canadiens tied at 2

MONTREAL (AP) — Pat Maroon capped a 2-on-1 break with 6:12 remaining in regulation, and the defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning evened the score at 2 to force overtime against the Montreal Canadiens in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. The Lightning lead the series 3-0. They are attempting to become the NHL’s second team to win consecutive championships in the salary-cap era, which began in 2005. The Pittsburgh Penguins accomplished the feat with titles in 2016 and 2017. If necessary, Game 5 is scheduled for Wednesday at Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay will open overtime with 2:59 remaining on a power play.
