Late rebound hurts Wild in 4-2 loss at Tampa Bay; losing streak reaches three games


The Wild was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Tampa Bay continued their recent tear at home, earning a 10th straight win at Amalie Arena on Tuesday after rallying 4-2 to hand the Wild a third straight loss at the end of their four-game road trip.

It was also the Lightning’s first regulation win over the Wild in nine games after the Wild went 7-0-1 the past five years.

Steven Stamkos broke a 2-2 tie 14 minutes and 22 seconds into the third period when he collected the puck from the Wild’s Ryan Hartman after a pair of tying goals from Corey Perry.

Nikita Kucherov added an empty-netter at 19:43.

A Joel Eriksson Ek breakaway at 3:43 of the second gave the Wild their first lead and eighth shorthanded goal, which is the second in the NHL, but the Lightning fought back on a Perry deflection at 9:44 mere seconds after the Wild were back at full strength after being shorthanded.

Just 1:58 later, Kirill Kaprizov buried an Eriksson Ek rebound on the power play for his team-leading 27th goal. Kaprizov’s 13 power-play goals are two shy of Brian Rolston’s 2005-06 record for most in a Wild season. Eriksson Ek is six points on a four-game point streak.

Again Tampa Bay responded, this time on the power play when Perry connected on another redirect with 1:55 left in the second.

Overall, the Lightning went 1 for 5 with the man advantage and the Wild finished 1 for 4.

Marc-André Fleury made 35 saves for the Wild; at the other end, Andrei Vasilevksiy made 34 saves.
