Martin St. Louis scored the tiebreaking goal in the third period and added an empty-netter to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning past the Winnipeg Jets 4-2 in a penalty-filled game Tuesday night.

Valtteri Filppula and Ondrej Palat also scored for the Lightning, who won for the sixth time in seven road games. They handed the Jets their fourth consecutive loss overall.

Olli Jokinen and Dustin Byfuglien scored for Winnipeg, and goalie Ondrej Pavelec had an assist.

The Jets were outshot by a wide margin for most of the game but still went into the third tied at 2. They scored two power-play goals and had managed to kill off four of the chances they handed Tampa Bay until St. Louis tipped in Victor Hedman's point shot at 8:39 on a fifth power play.
