(Sports Network) - The Tampa Bay Lightning hope to build some momentum this evening, when they visit the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place.

The Lightning beat Washington on Tuesday and now have a chance at consecutive victories for the first time in almost a month. Tampa Bay last put together a winning streak with its stretch of three straight triumphs from November 22-26.

The Bolts snapped a four-game skid Tuesday, as they earned a 5-4 decision on the Capitals' home ice. Martin St. Louis had two goals to help Tampa Bay win for just the second time in 10 games.

Filip Kuba and Vincent Lecavalier had a goal and two assists for the Lightning, and goaltender Marc Denis finished with 20 saves. Lecavalier's goal was the 200th of his career.

Tampa Bay, the 2004 Stanley Cup champion, has just 32 points this year and is just two ahead of last-place Florida in the Southeast Division.

Ottawa, meanwhile, will try to rebound from a blowout loss to Boston. The Bruins came into Scotiabank place on Tuesday and earned an easy 7-2 win over the Senators. Marco Sturm recorded his second career hat trick to lead Boston.

Christoph Schubert and Antoine Vermette scored for the struggling Senators, who have dropped five of their last seven games overall.
