Lightning Leads Capitals 3-2 After Second

The Tampa Bay Lightning got on the board early in the second period when Martin St. Louis took advantage of a Roman Hamrlik fall, breaking away and putting the Lightning ahead 2-1 1:05 into the second period. St. Louis's goal now gives him 22 points (four goals, eight assists) in his last 17 games. He also has a goal in three straight games for the first time this season.

Tampa Bay's penalty kill unit came to play tonight and killed off another penalty, this time a double minor when Steve Downie got called for high sticking.

Nate Thompson extended the Lightning's lead at 10:59, scoring from the slot. Dominic Moore and J.T. Wyman got the assists.

Thompson scored again but this time on the wrong net and credit went to Mathieu Perrault as an unassisted goal.
