TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Bryan Little scored a tiebreaking goal late in the third period, Al Montoya made 28 saves, and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 on Thursday night.

 

Little slid the puck from in-close past goalie Anders Lindback with 4:08 to play. Winnipeg also got a goal from Eric Tangradi.

 

The Jets were beaten by the Lightning 8-3 on Feb. 1. This outcome was much different.

 

Steven Stamkos got his 18th goal this season for the Lightning, who have lost six of seven.

 

Stamkos tied it at 1 when he skated into the low slot and put a shot past Montoya after taking a pass from Martin St. Louis 6:57 into the third period. St. Louis has five assists and seven points during a five-game points streak.
