(Sports Network) - The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to earn a split in a home-and-home series tonight, when they visit the Tampa Bay Lightning at St. Pete Times Forum.

The Penguins had a three-game winning streak halted by the visiting Lightning in a tight game on Sunday. Martin St. Louis scored the game-winner in the shootout to help Tampa Bay earn the 3-2 victory over the Pens at Mellon Arena.

St. Louis was the last shooter for Tampa Bay. He skated into the zone, turned his back to Marc-Andre Fleury and then flicked a backhander between the five- hole of the goaltender.

Sidney Crosby was Pittsburgh's last chance, but Johan Holmqvist made a right pad save on the wrist shot to win the game.

Ryan Craig had a goal and an assist and Nick Tarnasky scored the other goal for the Lightning, who have won two of their last three games. Holmqvist finished the game with 20 saves and stopped all three shooters in the shootout for Tampa Bay.
