Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - Nate Thompson tallied twice and added an assist on Tuesday to help the Tampa Bay Lightning put the brakes on a five-game skid with a 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center.
Martin St. Louis and Alexander Killorn each registered a goal and an assist, while Anders Lindback made 25 saves in the victory.
New Jersey netminder Johan Hedberg allowed three goals on 11 shots before being pulled in the second period. Rookie goaltender Keith Kinkaid stopped 12- of-13 shots in his first NHL appearance, but it wasn't enough, as the Devils dropped their sixth straight decision.
Adam Henrique and Patrik Elias each scored once in the setback.
