MONTREAL (AP) - Nate Thompson scored twice, including the winner at 4:36 of overtime, to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday afternoon.

Ben Bishop stopped 28 shots for Tampa Bay, which snapped a two-game losing streak.

Daniel Briere scored for Montreal. Carey Price made 34 saves.

Thompson scored the clincher when Alex Killorn found him all alone in from of Price.

The Lightning have a five-point advantage over the Canadiens in the Atlantic Division.

After the Lightning took a 1-0 lead in the second period, Briere tied it at 7:25 of the third, taking a cross-ice pass from captain Brian Gionta and firing home his ninth of the season over Bishop's shoulder. The goal was Briere's second in as many games.
