Lightning Lose To Winnipeg In Shootout 4-3

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Andrew Ladd scored twice in regulation and added the decisive goal in a shootout as the Winnipeg Jets stayed in the thick of the playoff hunt with a 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

Ladd also earned an assist, and defenseman Zach Bogosian had a pair of assists. Blake Wheeler scored once and added two assists for Winnipeg (22-19-2), which is on a season-high, four-game winning streak.

The Jets are tied in points with the eighth-place New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Winnipeg has five games remaining, one fewer than New York.

Martin St. Louis, Pierre-Cedric Labrie and Steven Stamkos — with his 27th goal — scored for Tampa Bay (17-22-4).

Mike Santorelli also beat Lightning goalie Ben Bishop in the shootout. No Tampa Bay skaters scored on Ondrej Pavelec.
