After St. Louis pulled the Lightning even at 14:09, Palat made it 3-2 from the low slot 1:46 later.
Tyler Johnson had the other Tampa Bay goal as the Lightning completed a seven-game homestand with a 5-2 record.
Brian Flynn and Thomas Vanek scored for Buffalo, which was coming off a 3-1 win at Florida on Friday night in which the Sabres were outshot 45-21.
Buffalo took a 2-1 lead when Vanek scored from the low left circle after taking a nifty pass from Marcus Foligno 12:46 into the third. Vanek has 24 goals and 39 points in 33 games against Tampa Bay.
