BOSTON - Manny Fernandez stopped 24 shots and the Eastern Conference-leading Boston Bruins won their fourth straight game, beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 on Tuesday night.
Blake Wheeler and Chuck Kobasew scored - becoming Boston's seventh and eighth 20-goal scorers this season. Zdeno Chara matched his career high with his 17th goal and added an assist. Mike McKenna made 36 saves for the Lightning, who have lost seven of eight.
Steven Stamkos whacked a rebound over Fernandez with 7:53 left - his 20th goal - to spoil the Boston backup's shutout bid.
Vincent Lecavalier hit the post on a power play with four minutes left, and that was Tampa Bay's best chance at a comeback.
