Tuesday, 3 am.

A bad start got even worse for the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night.

The Lightning fell into a tie for fifth in the Atlantac division, giving up three goals in the final period in a 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers, the seventh-place team in the Metropolitan.

The Rangers scored three times in the final seven minutes to beat the Bolts, who fell to 5-4-2 on the season. Tampa Bay has lost three of its last four games.

"We have a lot of skill, sometimes we just don't use it," Lightning forward Brayden Point said. "Our passes are a little bit off right now. ... Sometimes pucks don't bounce your way. We just got to stick with it."

In the slow start, Bolts' goaltender and Vezina winner Andrei Vasilevskiy is just 5-3. Hart Trophy winner Nikita Kucherov scored the LIghtnings’ goal, but it was only his fourth of the season

The Bolts play in New Jersey tonight.
