Tampa Bay's Garon shuts out Sabres

Pavel Kubina scored the eventual game-winning 0 from St. Pete Times Forum.

Martin St. Louis scored and added an assist, while Victor Hedman added an empty-net goal for the Lightning, who have won two straight since dropping five in a row.

Ryan Miller made 23 saves on 25 shots in defeat for Buffalo which was unable to dent Garon's armor and had its three-game winning streak snapped.

Prized free-agent acquisitions Ville Leino and Christian Ehrhoff were a combined minus-4 for the Sabres.
