Tampa, Fla. — Nathan Horton scored two goals, and the Boston Bruins beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2 last night.

Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand also scored for Boston, which improved to 6-1-1 on the road.

After blowing a two-goal lead, the Bruins took a 3-2 advantage on Marchand’s goal from the slot with 6:02 to go in the second. Horton extended the lead to 4-2 when he redirected Zdeno Chara’s pass at 2:33 of the third.

Tampa Bay got goals from Steven Stamkos and Cory Conacher, but the Lightning’s two-game winning streak, which followed an 0-5-1 stretch, was snapped.

The Bruins took a 2-0 lead early in the first on goals by Horton and Bergeron.

Horton scored on the rebound from the low left circle 1:11 into the game. Bergeron made it 2-0 when he beat goalie Anders Lindback from the right circle at 3:50.

Horton has 26 goals and 46 points in 45 games against the Lightning.

Tampa Bay got within 2-1 on Stamkos’ 11th goal of the season with 11:47 left in the first. Teddy Purcell set up the goal after winning a battle for the puck in the slot.

Purcell finished with two assists.

Conacher got a wrist shot from the left circle past Tuukka Rask 9 minutes into the second that tied it 2-2. The rookie snapped an eight-game drought with his sixth goal of the season.

Notes: Boston D Dougie Hamilton had two assists. ... Stamkos has four goals in three games. ... Boston LW Milan Lucic was back in the lineup after he missed Sunday’s 3-2 win at Winnipeg because of a personal matter. ... Tampa Bay D Keith Aulie didn’t play due to flu-like symptoms.

Blue Jackets 3
Red Wings 2

Detroit — Vinny Prospal scored with 24.7 seconds left, capping a comeback that lifted Columbus over the Detroit.

Blue Jackets center Artem Anisimov was alert and moving when he was taken off the ice on a stretcher Thursday night after being struck in the head by Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey.

The 24-year-old Russian center was taken to a hospital as a precaution because he said his head hurt, according to team spokesman Todd Sharrock.

Anisimov was on his back, motionless, early in the second period after Quincey appeared to hit him in the head with his left fist and forearm. Quincey skated off the ice following the collision and went to Detroit’s dressing room with an injured left leg.

Panthers 5, Flyers 2

Philadelphia — Jonathan Huberdeau and Peter Mueller each had two goals to help Florida snap a five-game losing streak.

Tomas Kopecky also scored for Florida, which was 0-2-3 since a 3-2 shootout victory in Philadelphia on Feb. 7. Scott Clemmensen, who backs up Jose Theodore, stopped 32 shots to earn his first win since April 7.

Luke Schenn and Jakub Voracek scored Philadelphia’s goals in the third period.

Devils 3, Capitals 2

Washington — Ilya Kovalchuk scored the tiebreaking goal on a 5-on-3 power play with about 8½ minutes left to complete the Devils’ comeback victory over the Capitals, who have yet to beat any of the Eastern Conference’s elite teams.

Washington led 2-1 entering the third period, thanks to power-play goals by Mathieu Perrault and Mike Ribeiro.

Jets 4, Hurricanes 3

Raleigh, n.c. — Blake Wheeler scored his second goal of the game with 4:54 remaining to lift Winnipeg over Carolina.

Wheeler sped in on a partial breakaway after Carolina defenseman Joe Corvo slipped near the blue line and beat goalie Cam Ward.

Maple Leafs 3, Sabres 1

Toronto — James van Riemsdyk scored two goals to lead Toronto past Buffalo, spoiling the NHL head coaching debut of Ron Rolston.

Rolston, who until Wednesday was the head coach of the AHL’s Rochester Americans, was hired as the Sabres interim coach following the club’s decision to fire Lindy Ruff.

But the Sabres, who have dropped three straight and five of six, were booed off the ice following Tuesday’s loss to Winnipeg.

Islanders 4
Canadiens 3 (ot)

Montreal — Rookie defenseman Thomas Hickey scored in overtime for his first NHL goal, and New York rallied to snap the Canadiens’ six-game winning streak.

Matt Moulson scored twice and Frans Nielsen added a goal in the third period for Islanders (7-9-1), who trailed 2-0 and 3-1 but came back to end a two-game slide and win for the third time in 10 games.

Max Pacioretty had two goals, and Travis Moen added one for the Canadiens (11-5-2).
