Lecavalier reaches 50 goals with marker in 4-2 Lightning win over Hurricanes

Martin St. Louis netted his 42nd, Vaclav Prospal had a goal and assist, and Filip Kuba broke a third-period tie for the Lightning, who twice rallied from one-goal deficits and moved past the idle New York Rangers into sixth place in the Eastern Conference.

Erik Cole and Mike Commodore scored for Carolina, which has lost three straight and is in danger of becoming the first defending Stanley Cup champion to miss the playoffs since New Jersey in 1995. The Hurricanes are tied for 10th in the East, two points below the playoff cutoff with four games remaining.
