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

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
