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.

The Lightning ended a three-game losing streak while Buffalo failed to make up ground in the race for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Jordan Leopold scored for Buffalo at 16:52 of the third period.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.

— Dale Weise, who grew up a Canadiens fan, on scoring the overtime winner in Montreal's 5-4 victory against Tampa Bay in Game 1
