(AP) Brett Connolly and Valtteri Filppula scored in the third period, lifting the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 4-2 win over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.


Connolly, playing in his second game since being recalled from Syracuse of the AHL, put Tampa Bay ahead 3-2 when he redirected Radko Gudas' shot at 8:37 of the third. Filppula made it 4-2 with 3:59 remaining.


Alex Killorn had a goal and two assists and Steven Stamkos also scored for the Lightning, who have won all five games this season against Western Conference teams.


St. Louis got goals from Alex Pietrangelo and Jaden Schwartz.


Stamkos scored his 11th goal of the season to give Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead 1:43 into the second during a 2-on-1. The center, who has a goal in four consecutive games, briefly dragged the puck before putting an in-close shot past Jaroslav Halak.


Schwartz got St. Louis even at 2-2 from the slot 2:02 after Stamkos' goal.


Pietrangelo extended his goal-scoring streak to four games and put the Blues up 1-0 at 7:50 of the first.


Killorn tied it at 1-all with 9:16 left in the first. It was the first even-strength goal allowed by St. Louis in 225 minutes, 55 seconds.


Tampa Bay's Ben Bishop turned aside a shot by Chris Stewart during a late first-period breakaway. Halak made nice saves on Stamkos and Martin St. Louis while the Blues were short-handed in the second.


NOTES: St. Louis' Alexander Steen, who picked up an assist, had his six-game goal streak end. He scored eight of his 12 goals this season during the stretch. ... Stamkos has six goals and 10 points during a six-game points streak. ... Lightning D Mark Barberio assisted on Stamkos' goal for his first NHL point.
