Lightning lose 4-1 at Pittsburgh

After a modest two-game, early season win streak, the Tampa Bay Lightning have now lost two straight, losing 4-1 at Pittsburgh to the Penguins tonight.

Bill Guerin scored a power play goal at 4:56 and Sergei Gonchar scored at 17:10, giving Pittsburgh a 2-0 lead after one.

In the second, a Steven Stamkos power play goal for the Lightning at 6:18 cut the deficit to 2-1, but Pittsburgh scored on a goal by Pascal Dupuis at 8:15 to lead 3-1 after two.

In the third, Mike Rupp scored for the Penguins at 11:21, and Pittsburgh skated it home from there, winning 4-1.

The Penguins outshot Tampa Bay 33-23. Antero Niittymaki, despite allowing 4 goals, was brilliant for the Lightning, making 29 saves, several of those coming at the end of the second period on two straight two-man disadvatges. Marc-Andre Fleury had 22 saves for Pittsburgh. Both teams were 1-for-7 on the power play.

Tampa Bay is now 2-3-2 for 6 points, third in the Southeast, 2 points behind Atlanta and 4 behind Washington. The Penguins, who have now won 5 straight, are 7-1, tied with the Rangers for first in the Atlantic.
