Tampa Bay Lightning give up another two-goal lead in 4-2 loss to St. Louis Blues

Killorn, Filppula score Lightning's lone two goals

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) - Alexander Steen got the go-ahead goal early in the third period and goalie Ryan Miller won his first home start in the St. Louis Blues' 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

T.J. Oshie's short-handed goal tied it in the second period and he assisted on Steen's 29th of the season for the Central Division leaders.  Patrik Berglund started the comeback with his third goal in two games and Vladimir Tarasenko's empty-net score cinched it with a half-minute to go.

Alex Killorn and Tyler Johnson gave Lightning goalie Ben Bishop, a St. Louis native and former Blue, an early cushion against an opponent that's had to come from behind in all four games since the Olympic break.

Lightning return home for a six game home stand beginning Thursday night against Buffalo.

The NHL trade deadline ends at 3pm Wednesday and it looks like the Bolts will stand pat unless there is an 11th hour deal.
