“We definitely gave them an opportunity to get to their game,” forward Craig Adams added, “and they did.”

The Lightning, who had a 45-minute team meeting followed by a 45-minute on-ice session following Game 1, canceled a scheduled workout at its suburban practice facility on Saturday.

Brewer, who had two assists along with early momentum-building goal, said despite being shut out in Game 1, the Lightning did not feel bad about the way it played.

Winning Game 2 only bolstered the confidence they brought into the series.

“There’s a belief in our system here, and I think everyone stuck with it,” Brewer said. “We didn’t really make any major adjustments, didn’t feel we needed to. We just needed to do the things we do a little better.”

The Penguins like their chances winning in Tampa to regain home-ice advantage. Game 4 is Wednesday night at the St. Pete Times, where the Lightning won both regular-season meetings between the teams.

“It’s loud, every building is,” Penguins forward Michael Rupp said. “I don’t think Pittsburgh’s an easy place to come and play either. But we’ve been a pretty solid road team all year. It’s been one of our strengths.”
