TAMPA, Fla. - Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis each had a goal and an assist and the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 on Tuesday.

Stamkos scored his league-leading 23rd goal of the season off a deflection past Ryan Miller at 16:01 of the first period.

St. Louis extended the lead to 2-0 at 8:15 of the second period with a power-play goal off a sharp pass from Teddy Purcell.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
