Lightning nip Senators behind Stamkos

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Steven Stamkos scored his 26th goal of the season in the third period, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Ottawa Senators 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Stamkos snapped a 2-2 tie with a power-play goal from the near post off a pass through the slot by Vincent Lecavalier with 5:04 to play.

Tampa Bay also got goals from Pierre-Cedric Labrie and Lecavalier. Martin St. Louis assisted on Lecavalier's goal for his 900th point. The right wing, the 98th NHL player to reach the milestone, also assisted on Stamkos' goal.

Daniel Alfredsson and Guillaume Latendresse scored for the Senators, who have lost five in a row. Kyle Turris had two assists. Latendresse tied it at 2 from near the crease on a power play 21 seconds into the third.

Tampa Bay took a 2-1 lead early in the second on goals by Labrie and Lecavalier. After Labrie beat Craig Anderson from in-close at 2:35 for his first NHL goal, Lecavalier gave the Lightning a one-goal advantage during a 5-on-3 power play 1:53 later.

Alfredsson put the Senators up 1-0 at 14:29 of the first. He swatted a waist-high puck into the net after goalie Ben Bishop got a piece of Turris' shot with his glove.

Turris hit the post shortly after Alfredsson scored and had a potential goal with 2:08 left in the second disallowed when it was ruled he knocked the puck into the net with a high stick. The call was upheld after a video review.

Alfredsson has 425 goals, tying him for 70th place on the NHL career list with Brian Propp. The right wing also tied Frank Mahovlich for 56th place with 1,103 points.

NOTES: Bishop was traded to Tampa Bay from Ottawa for C Cory Conacher on April 3. ... Tampa Bay LW Ryan Malone played after missing eight games with a left shoulder injury. ... Anderson has played in consecutive games. He missed 19 games after hurting his ankle in late February. ... Lightning D Victor Hedman missed his third straight game because of a lower body injury. ... Tampa Bay G Anders Lindback, sidelined the past eight games with an ankle injury, has resumed working out with the team. ... Ottawa D Erik Karlsson (Achilles tendon surgery) has resumed skating. ... Labrie sat out the previous six games with an upper body injury.
