TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Dominic Moore scored a tiebreaking goal with 3:45 remaining in the third period and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Boston Bruins 5-3 on Tuesday night.
Moore stopped an 11-game goal drought and put Tampa Bay up 4-3 when he beat Tim Thomas with a shot from the top of the left circle.
Steven Stamkos added his league-leading 31st goal of the season into an empty net during the final minute of play.
Vincent Lecavalier, Tom Pyatt and Ryan Malone had the other Tampa Bay goals.
Nathan Horton had two goals, and Daniel Paille added a short-handed goal for the Northeast Division-leading Bruins, who were coming off a 3-2 shootout win at Florida on Monday night. Horton has 24 goals and 44 points in 44 games against Tampa Bay.
After Malone scored off a turnover 4:58 into the third, Paille got the Bruins even at 3 on a backhand during his short-handed breakaway at 10:53.
Paille has two of Boston's six short-handed goals this season. Tampa Bay has given up seven goals to its opponents while on the power play.
Tampa Bay went up 2-1 when Thomas was unable to cover the puck after a diving attempt and Pyatt chipped home a backhand from just outside the crease with 5:49 left in the second.
Thomas is 2-4 in his past six games.
Horton pulled Boston even at 2 just 2:37 after Pyatt's goal. He had tied it at 1-all on an in-close rebound earlier in the second at 4:28 after Mathieu Garon stopped the right wing's initial shot.
David Krejci, who had his 11-game point streak end (five goals, 16 points) Monday night, assisted on Horton's second goal of the game.
Lecavalier put the Lightning ahead 1-0 with a backhand from the slot at 7:11 of the first. The center also hit the post from the right circle during a power play late in the period.
