Coleman scores 2, Lightning beat Blue Jackets 3-1

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Ondrej Palat scored the tiebreaking goal in the third period and Curtis McElhinney stopped 24 shots, leading the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 3-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.

Blake Coleman had two goals, including an empty netter with 25 seconds left for Tampa Bay, which pulled to within a point of second-place Florida in the Central Division standings.

"It's been a little up and down for us in the past couple of games to find our groove," said McElhinney, who allowed seven goals to Nashville in his last start. "It was nice for me to get in and get a win for the team, and it's obviously a big win for us moving forward.
