TAMPA, Fla. - J.T. Brown and Anton Stralman scored 15 seconds apart soon after Tampa Bay captain Steven Stamkos got into a fight, and the Lightning stopped a 10-game losing streak against the Boston Bruins with a 5-3 victory Sunday.

Tampa Bay also got goals from Vladislav Namestnikov, Jason Garrison and Ondrej Palat. The Lightning's last win over Boston was on Mar. 13, 2012, a 6-1 victory.

Less than a minute after Stamkos fought Boston's Brad Marchand at 10:05 of the first, Brown (10:47) and Stralman (11:02) beat Tuukka Rask to put the Lightning up 3-1.

The Lightning trail Atlantic Division-leading Montreal by two points.
