DETROIT - Steven Stamkos scored twice and Ryan Callahan had the lone shootout goal to lift Tampa Bay to a 4-3 win over Detroit for the Lightning's sixth straight victory.
Callahan deked right and got the puck past Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard to seal the victory, the first during the streak that required extra play.
Ben Bishop stopped all three shots he faced during the shootout and made 17 saves to secure his ninth victory of the season.
Howard had 27 saves.
Detroit trailed 3-2 at the end of the second period thanks to Darren Helm's slap shot goal and Gustav Nyquist tied the game midway through the third with his team-best eighth marker.
Stamkos' second goal, his 10th this season, ricocheted in off the right post early in the second period to give the Lightning its first lead and Tyler Johnson made it a 3-1 game a few minutes later.
