If a three-game winning streak fooled you into thinking the stumbling was over for the Tampa Bay Lighting, well, not so much.

The Bolts lost a 4-3 game to Winnipeg Saturday despite the 400th goal of Steven Stamkos' career. Stamkos brought the Lightning to within a goal with 2:19 to play.

Victor Hedman and Anthony Cirelli also scored for the Lightning.

"Anytime you get a milestone, it's better to get it in front of your fans." Stamkos said. "O’m sure it's one of of those mounts you reflect on after the fact. It’s pretty surreal. You never envision scoring that many goals. It would havenicer to come in a win, but t’s nice to get it out of the way."

The Lightning plays at St. Louis at 8 p.m. on Tuesday night.
