TORONTO (Ticker) -- Matt Pettinger, Martin St. Louis, Ryan

Malone and Paul Szczechura all scored goals to lift the Tampa

Bay Lightning to a 4-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on

Thursday night.

Lee Stempniak had given Toronto a 1-0 lead, but it didn't last.

The Maple Leafs had earned 15 of 22 points in their previous 11

games but couldn't cope with the Lightning, who have the

second-fewest points in the NHL.

Stempniak scored the only goal in the first period that included

only 12 shots on goal.
