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.
