Prospal powers Lightning past Bruins

TAMPA, Florida (Ticker) -- Vaclav Prospal scored a power-play

goal to snap a tie with 93 seconds remaining as the Tampa Bay

Lightning snapped a four-game losing streak with a 4-3 triumph

over the Boston Bruins on Sunday.

Jeff Halpern and Adam Hall scored 15 seconds apart in the first

period and veteran Mark Recchi also tallied for Tampa Bay, which

entered the contest 0-3-1 in its last four games.

Karri Ramo turned aside 40 shots for the Lightning.

Phil Kessel and defensemen Zdeno Chara and Andrew Ference scored

for Boston, which fell to 1-4-2 in its last seven games.

Marc Savard notched two assists and Manny Fernandez finished

with 14 saves for the Bruins.

With the game tied at 3-3 late in the third period, Ference was

whistled for a delay of game penalty after wristing the puck

into the crowd.

Prospal then accepted a centering feed from Halpern and quickly

shoveled the puck past Fernandez for his 15th goal of the

season.
