Ukranian Ruslan Fedotenko scored twice for the Lightning - the second with five minutes left in the second period.
The Flames fought back, Craig Conroy firing a blast from long range with just over 10 minutes left.
But despite nine shots on goal, the visitors failed in their bid to be the first Canadian winners since 1993.
It was a dramatic late turnaround for Calgary, who had managed just eight in the first 50 minutes.
Fedotenko blasted the puck past Calgary goaltender Mikka Kiprusoff 14 min 38 sec into the second period to give Tampa Bay a 2-0 lead after a perfect pass from Vincent Lecavalier.
Lightning captain Dave Andreychuk, whose 1,759 NHL games were the most for anyone without an NHL championship win, succeeded in his quest to have his name inscribed on the Stanley Cup.
"It's awesome," he said. "It took me 29 years to get here, and I'm so proud of our guys because we got a game seven at home because we worked hard all year long."
Brad Richards was named the series Most Valuable Player after scoring 26 points, and assisting in the first goal of game seven.
The Flames, who made an improbable run to the final as a sixth seed, became only the second club in 33 years to blow a 3-2 lead in the championship series.
