TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Martin St. Louis had a goal and two assists, helping the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Vincent Lecavalier and Andreas Karlsson also scored for Tampa Bay, which has an 11-game winning streak against Pittsburgh. Five of the victories have come at home, where Tampa Bay has outscored the Penguins 22-3.

St. Louis has four goals and 11 points during a personal eight-game point streak.

Sidney Crosby and Colby Armstrong scored for the Penguins, who have lost four of their last seven. It was announced late in the third period that the 19-year-old Crosby will be in the starting lineup for the Eastern Conference in this month's all-star game.

St. Louis gave Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead on his 27th goal of the season during a power play at 6:46 of the second. His shot from along the goal-line deflected off Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury.

Tampa Bay's Johan Holmqvist made a diving save on Mark Recchi's back-hander with 17:04 left in the third. Karlsson extended the Lightning lead to 3-1 19 seconds later with his first goal in 19 games. St. Louis set up the goal by stealing the puck from Pittsburgh defenceman Sergei Gonchar.
