WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -Martin St. Louis scored his second goal of the game on a power play with 7 seconds left in overtime to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 4-3 exhibition victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night.

"He's just smart, he's just dangerous on the ice," Lightning coach Rick Tocchet. "He's the ultimate pro."

Ryan Malone and defenseman Kurtis Foster also scored for Tampa Bay (3-1-2) in front of a crowd of 11,644 at MTS Centre. Foster tied it with 1:37 left in regulation, firing a long shot that went through traffic and past goalie Jeff Deslauriers.

Robert Nilsson, Andrew Cogliano and Tom Gilbert scored for Edmonton. The Oilers have lost four straight to drop to 3-4-0.

"We still are a team that overpasses," Oilers coach Pat Quinn said. "Some of our guys want to pass it into the net, you know. But that's just a recognition of what you have and what kind of things you can make happen."

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
