Buffalo, NY (Sports Network) - Brad Richards scored the game-winning goal in the final frame to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 3-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres at HSBC Arena.

Vincent Lecavalier scored a goal to extend his point streak to six games while Martin St. Louis notched an assist to register at least a point in 10 straight games for Tampa Bay, which has won four straight.

The last time the Lightning won four consecutive games was last season. They also defeated Buffalo for the first time in the last seven meetings.

Marc Denis turned aside 32 shots in the victory for Tampa Bay.

Jason Pominville and Ales Kotalik scored for the Sabres, who have dropped two straight and four of their last six games.

Ryan Miller allowed three goals on 23 shots in the loss.

At 6:56 of the third, the Lightning broke a tie and took a 3-2 edge. From the slot, Paul Ranger made a nifty backhand pass into the right circle to Richards, who one-timed the feed past a sliding Miller.

Buffalo pulled Miller with around a minute remaining and had some chances late, but could not net the equalizer.

Tampa Bay grabbed a 1-0 lead at 10:05 of the first after Lecavalier scored a power-play goal. From the left side of the net, St. Louis fed the puck to the slot to Lecavalier, who quickly one-timed the feed into the top right corner of the net.

The Sabres evened the score at 1-1 after Jason Pominville tallied 4:06 into the second stanza. Jaroslav Spacek cranked a slap shot from the right point that Denis stopped, but Pominville was camped out in front and fired the rebound home.

Way to go Denis! He made 32 saves on Buffalo who are obviously a high scoring team. A way better outcome then when he let in 7 goals in the 2nd period in a previous game.

The last time the Lightning won four consecutive games was last season.
I hope they can keep this up they have been doing well lately and Lecavalier and St Louis are doing amazing!!
