Perry’s second of the night means a Game 6 on Monday
Mikhail Sergachev’s early third period tally had the Lightning on the brink of its second championship, but Joe Pavelski scored with 6:45 remaining in regulation, allowing the Stars to avoid elimination.
Pavelski’s goal was his 61st NHL postseason goal, passing Joe Mullen for most-ever by an American-born player.
It is the first time in NHL history that there were overtime games in the Cup Final on consecutive days.
Game 6 will be played on Monday night at 8 p.m.
