NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Nate Thompson scored twice and Martin St. Louis and rookie Alexander Killorn each had a goal and an assist as the Tampa Bay Lightning snapped a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the struggling New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.
Cory Conacher and Vincent Lecavalier each had two assists as the Lightning won for only the second time in eight games and extended the Devils' winless streak to six games (0-5-1).
Anders Lindback had 25 saves for the Lightning, surrendering late goals to Adam Henrique and Patrik Elias.
New Jersey's slide has taken place with Johan Hedberg in goal for the injured Martin Brodeur (back). The crowd at the Prudential Center cheered wildly after coach Peter DeBoer sent Keith Kinkaid out for his first NHL action after Tampa Bay opened a 3-0 lead.
The only good thing the Devils did was end Steven Stamkos' 10-game point streak.
