Lightning 4, Senators 3, SO
Ottawa Senators 3, Tampa Bay Lightning 4

TAMPA, Fla. - Teddy Purcell scored in the third round of a shootout to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 4-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

Purcell and Martin St. Louis scored first-period goal, and Steven Stamkos added his 48th goal of the season early in the second on a power play to make it 3-0.

Ottawa's Nick Foligno beat Lightning goalie Mike Smith on a power play to cut it to 3-1 midway through the second. Jason Speeza added a power-play goal with 1:18 left in the second and Mike Fisher tied it with another power-play goal early in the third.

Fisher took a pass from Daniel Alfredsson in the slot and easily fired it past Lightning goalie Mike Smith.

Smith made 35 saves for the Lightning, including a stop on a point-blank shot from Ottawa's Peter Regin with a minute left in regulation.

In the shootout, Elliott was able to stop shots from Stamkos and St. Louis but Purcell executed a deke and slipped a backhander into the goal. Fisher had a chance to send the shootout into a fourth round, but his shot went high and wide.

NOTES: Smith and Ottawa forward Chris Neil exchanged blows after Neil tripped him. Both players received double minors ... Lightning forward Andrej Maszaros was hit in the throat with a slap shot in the second period and quickly left the ice. He returned in the third period ... Ottawa forward Alex Kovalev left the game in the second period with a left leg injury and did not return ... The Senators, who are now officially locked into fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings, close out their regular schedule on Saturday at Scotiabank Place against the Buffalo Sabres (7 p.m., CBC, Team 1200). The game will be preceded by a special ceremony paying tribute to captain Daniel Alfredsson for reaching the 1,000 game milestone earlier this week in a 5-2 victory over the Florida Panthers.
