TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Filip Kuba and Brad Richards scored 36 seconds apart midway through the second period, helping the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Ottawa Senators 3-1 on Sunday.

Johan Holmqvist made 22 saves for the Lightning, who have won three straight and seven of 10. The goalie made a sliding pad save on Joseph Corvo's in-close shot in the second.

Tampa Bay also got a power-play goal from Martin St. Louis with 1:18 left.

Jason Spezza scored for the Senators, who had won four in a row.

The Lightning had lost eight straight regular-season games to Ottawa, dating to a 2-1 win in Ottawa on March 1, 2003. This was the first meeting between the teams since the Senators beat Tampa Bay in five games in an Eastern Conference quarter-finals last spring.
