Dominic Moore scored the tying short-handed goal with 1:57 left in regulation and then netted the only goal in the shootout to help the Tampa Bay Lightning snap a five-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Rangers on Thursday night.

The Lightning ended their skid despite not having star forward Martin St. Louis in the lineup for the first time in 500 games. St. Louis was struck near his left eye Thursday morning by a shot taken by Moore and sustained facial and sinus fractures. The 36-year-old St. Louis hadn't missed a game since Nov. 15, 2005.

Ryan Malone had gotten Tampa Bay even at 1-1 in the second.

Ryan Callahan and Artem Anisimov scored for the Rangers, who remain one win shy of 2,500 career victories over team history.

"We knew they would be desperate," said Lundqvist, who has started all 26 games for the Rangers against the Lightning since 2005. "We had a couple of big chances to kill the game. Instead they came back and tied it. We just have to move on."

Callahan's power-play goal at 7:49 of the first gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead. However, New York dropped to 12-1-1 in games in which it scored first. Malone's sixth of the season tied it at 11:23 of the second. Malone intercepted a pass by Ryan McDonagh in the defensive zone before beating Lundqvist for the unassisted goal.

THE BIGGER PICTURE
This game was a learning experience that didn't cost the Blueshirts a full two points in the end. Although they were clearly the superior team throughout, they didn't make sure to put the game out of reach, and that came back to bite them in a skills competition.
