TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Vinny Prospal snapped a personal 20-game goal-scoring drought with a tiebreaking second-period goal, helping the Tampa Bay Lightning defeat the Montreal Canadiens 3-1 on Saturday night.

Brad Richards and Filip Kuba also scored for the Lightning, who outshot Montreal 41-13. Tampa Bay was coming off a 4-3 loss Thursday to Philadelphia, which had lost 10 straight and has the NHL's worst record.

The Canadiens' record for fewest shots in a game is 12, coming twice against Ottawa on Jan. 26, 2006 and Dec. 27, 2002.

Montreal goalie Cristobal Huet made 38 saves. Alexander Perezhogin scored for the Canadiens.

Tampa Bay goalie Johan Holmqvist turned aside 12 shots.

Prospal gave the Lightning a 2-1 lead on his backhander from near the goal-line between the net and the boards with 13 minutes left in the second. It was his first goal since Nov. 15, which also came against Montreal.

Kuba made it 3-1 on the power play at 7:07 of the third.

Huet kept the Canadiens in the game by stopping 22 of 23 shots in the first. The only goal he allowed came on Richards' rebound during a power play at 11:28.
