WASHINGTON (AP) - Martin St. Louis and Nikita Alexeev scored 22 seconds apart during a three-goal second period that carried the Tampa Bay Lightning past the Washington Capitals 6-4 on Saturday night.

Alexeev had two goals, and Vincent Lecavalier, Andreas Karlsson and Brad Richards also scored for Tampa Bay, which has won three of four. The six goals are the most scored by the Lightning this year.

Alexander Semin, Mike Green, Brian Sutherby and Alexader Ovechkin scored for the Capitals, who had claimed points in five straight games. Washington had been unbeaten (2-0-1) at home.

Playing their first game without injured centre Ryan Craig, the Lightning spread out the offence, a strategy that helped compensate for the absence of their leading goal-scorer. Craig sustained a sprained right knee in Thursday's game against Philadelphia and will miss four weeks.

Trailing 2-1 early in the second period, Tampa Bay took control on goals by St. Louis and Alexeev.
