Lightning 4, Senators 3, SO
Ottawa Senators 3, Tampa Bay Lightning 4

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Coiming off an embarrassing loss to Carolina, Tampa Bay coach Rick Tocchet asked his team to play with more toughness and pride.

The Lightning listened - at the Ottawa Senators' expense.

Teddy Purcell scored in the third round of a shootout to give Tampa Bay a 4-3 victory over Ottawa on Thursday night.

"There was a lot of passion," Tocchet said. "I like the passion, but it was just undisciplined. Weve got a lot of work to do."

Purcell and Martin St. Louis scored first-period goals, and Steven Stamkos added his 48th goal of the season early in the second on a power play to make it 3-0.

Ottawa's Nick Foligno beat Lightning goalie Mike Smith on a power play to cut it to 3-1 midway through the second. Jason Speeza added a power-play goal with 1:18 left in the second, and Mike Fisher tied it with another power-play goal early in the third.

Fisher took a pass from Daniel Alfredsson in the slot and easily shot it past Lightning goalie Mike Smith.

"It was nice to see us battle back in a game that doesn't mean anything for us," Alfredsson said. "We showed some character and we had enough chances to win it."

Smith made 35 saves for the Lightning, including a stop on a point-blank shot from Ottawa's Peter Regin with a minute left in regulation.

In the shootout Elliott was able to stop shots from Stamkos and St. Louis but Purcell executed a deke and slipped a backhander into the goal. Fisher had a chance to send the shootout into a fourth round, but his shot went high and wide.

NOTES: Smith and Ottawa forward Chris Neil exchanged blows after Neil tripped him. Both players received double minors. "I like to muck it up out there," Smith said. "I don't like to lose and I don't like to get knocked down either." ... Lightning forward Andrej Maszaros was hit in the throat with a slap shot in the second period and quickly left the ice. He returned in the third period.
