TAMPA -- Brett Connolly scored the go-ahead goal 8:37 into the third period and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the St. Louis Blues 4-2 on Saturday night at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Connolly, playing his first game since being recalled from the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League on Thursday, snapped a 2-2 tie when he deflected a shot by Radko Gudas three seconds after a hooking penalty to Vladimir Sobotka expired.

Valtteri Filppula, who earned the second assist on Connolly's goal, added some insurance with 3:59 remaining. Alex Killorn had a goal and two assists for the Lightning, and Ben Bishop stopped 28 shots for his ninth victory of the season.

Tampa Bay improved to 10-4-0 this season and is 6-2-0 at home.

Alex Pietrangelo and Jaden Schwartz scored for the Blues (8-2-2), and Jaroslav Halak made 21 saves.

Pietrangelo opened the scoring 7:50 into the game when his shot from the blue line went through a tangle of bodies and past Bishop. The goal was Pietrangelo's fourth in the past four games; he leads all NHL defensemen in goals. David Backes and Alexander Steen assisted.

Killorn tied it at 10:44 with an unassisted goal. He picked up a loose puck in the St. Louis zone, cut across the slot and had his first shot blocked, but recovered the carom and beat Halak for his fourth of the season. Killorn has scored in both games since being moved up to the first line with Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis.

Stamkos put the Lightning ahead at 1:43 of the second period. He and St. Louis broke in 2-on-1 against Halak, and Stamkos roofed a shot from the edge of the crease for his 11th of the season. Killorn and Mark Barberio earned assists; the point was Barberio's first in the NHL.

This time the lead lasted for just over two minutes, until Jaden Schwartz got the puck in the low slot and ripped a shot past Bishop at 3:45 for his third of the season.
