Connolly scores tiebreaking goal, leads Lightning to 4-2 win over Blues

TAMPA, Fla. - Brett Connolly and Valtteri Filppula scored in the third period, lifting the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 4-2 win over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.

Connolly, playing in his second game since being recalled from Syracuse of the AHL, put Tampa Bay ahead 3-2 when he redirected Radko Gudas' shot at 8:37 of the third. Filppula made it 4-2 with 3:59 remaining.

Alex Killorn had a goal and two assists and Steven Stamkos also scored for the Lightning, who have won all five games this season against Western Conference teams.

St. Louis got goals from Alex Pietrangelo and Jaden Schwartz.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
