NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Martin St. Louis scored three goals and set up another to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 4-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday.
Mathieu Garon made 19 saves and set up St. Louis' first goal as the Lightning snapped a two-game losing streak less than 24 hours after being blown out 8-1 by the Penguins. Teddy Purcell added three assists for Tampa Bay, which has gone 11-5-2 in its last 18 in making a playoff push.
Alexei Ponikarovsky, Petr Sykora and Zach Parise scored for the Devils, who dropped their second straight game after going 9-1-1 since the All-Star break. The setback spoiled the debut of defenseman Marek Zidlicky, acquired from Minnesota on Friday.
