TAMPA, Fla. Brian Dawkins Jersey . -- Goaltender Anders Lindback had a solid performance against a familiar opponent. Lindback won in his first game against his former team, Alex Killorn had a goal and an assist, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Nashville Predators 4-2 on Thursday night. "Its always nice to get a win, especially against the old team," said Lindback, who made 28 saves. "Its always a little special." The Lightning also got goals from Martin St. Louis, Teddy Purcell and Richard Panik. Lindback stopped six shots, including a pair of quality chances by David Legwand, during a two-minute stretch late in the first period. Tampa Bay acquired Lindback in a trade with Nashville on June 15, 2012. "I know for him it was a big game," Killorn said. "Its the one he circled on the calendar. He played awesome." Craig Smith had two goals for the Predators. Matt Cullen assisted on both of Smiths goals. "Theyre playing good hockey," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said of Tampa Bay. "They play a real high-pace game." Killorn put the Lightning up 1-0 when he beat Carter Hutton from the right circle 2:25 into the game. Defenceman Victor Hedman and Jean-Philippe Cote assisted on the goal. Hedman was back in the lineup after missing the previous six games because of a lower-body injury. Cote, recalled Wednesday from Syracuse of the AHL, got his first career point playing in his first NHL game since an eight-game stint with Montreal during the 2005-06 season. The Lightning are 15-1-1 when scoring the first goal of the game. Nashville dropped to 3-15-1 when its opponent scores first. "Weve been finding out in this league getting the lead is huge," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. St. Louis made it 2-0 during a power play at 19:06 of the first. Tampa Bay had scored with the man advantage in just four of its previous 22 games. After Smith cut the Nashville deficit to 2-1 at 6:36 of the second, Purcell put the Lightning back up by two 1:51 later. Nashville got within 3-2 when Smith scored a power play with 6:58 left in the second. Tampa Bay again quickly responded on Paniks goal just 49 seconds later. "Thats not good," Smith said. "Takes the momentum away from you." Hutton was pulled after Paniks goal and replaced by Marek Mazanec, who stopped all 19 shots he faced. Hutton gave up four goals on 14 shots on his 28th birthday.

The Dallas Cowboys did, too. Staffords 1-yard lunge over a pile of linemen with 12 seconds left and Johnsons 329 yards receiving lifted the Detroit Lions to a 31-30 win over Dallas on Sunday. "I was yelling that I was going to spike the ball," Stafford recalled. "But their linebackers were just standing there." The Cowboys werent just standing around letting Johnson make catch after catch, but he made them look helpless as he tied Hall of Famer Lance Alworths mark for 220-plus yards receiving in a game by doing it for a fifth time. Johnson almost broke an NFL record, and could celebrate the feat because of a comeback from a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit that some people who entered Ford Field didnt see because they had left. "Even our fans didnt think we could pull this one out," he said. "They were leaving, but we knew we could do it." Johnsons total trails only the 336 yards receiving Flipper Anderson had for the Los Angeles Rams against New Orleans on Nov. 26, 1989 in a game that went into overtime. Anderson had 296 yards receiving in regulation. The Cowboys dared Detroit to throw to Johnson with a lot of one-on-one coverage. They usually asked cornerback Brandon Carr to do the improbable by defending him by himself, and sometimes attempted to slow him down with a zone. "He had his way," Carr said. "And, we couldnt find a way to keep him from rolling." Johnson noticed. "It was crazy," he said. "We had a lot of one-on-one coverage today, and we were able to take advantage and hit some deep balls. Matt made some great throws to me." The Lions (5-3) overcame four turnovers without forcing a turnover, becoming the first team to do that and win since New England did against Miami in 2007, according to STATS. On their last drive, Stafford threw a 22-yard pass to Johnson to set up the winning score. The quarterback caught at least some Cowboys by surprise, including linebacker Sean Lee, who appeared to expect him to spike the ball to stop the clock. "He kind of caught us off-guard," defensive tackle Jason Hatcher acknowledged. Dallas (4-4) seemed to set itself up to win three straight for the first time this year to build a bigger lead atop the NFC East when Tony Romo threw hiss second touchdown -- and third of the game -- to Dez Bryant with 6:45 left to take 27-17 lead. Max Garcia Jersey. The Cowboys, though, allowed Reggie Bush to cap an 80-yard drive with a 1-yard TD with 3:33 left. They also had to settle for Dan Baileys third field goal with 1:02 left after Tyron Smith was flagged for holding on third down, a mistake that stopped the clock even though Detroit declined the penalty. "If we dont get called for a penalty, I think they probably had 20 seconds or so left," Romo said. With no timeouts, the Lions went from their 20 to the Cowboys end zone thanks in large part to a 17-yard pass to Johnson, a 40-yard connection with Kris Durham and Johnsons 14th reception that gave them the ball at the Dallas 1. Instead of spiking the ball, Stafford took the snap and leaped with his arms extended to beat the team he rooted for growing up in Highland Park, Texas. "I was just as fooled as the defence was," Lions offensive guard Larry Warford said. Stafford was 33 of 48 for 488 yards --his second-highest total -- with a 2-yard TD pass to Johnson in the first quarter and two interceptions. Reggie Bush had 92 yards rushing and a score. Romo was 14 of 30, failing to complete half his passes for the first time since 2009, for 206 yards without a turnover. Dallas began the game without two starters on both sides of the ball: DeMarco Murray and Miles Austin on offence and DeMarcus Ware and J.J. Wilcox on defence. Late in the first half, Romo threw two straight passes to Bryant -- after not making him the intended receiver once -- and he caught the second one with his left hand, pinning it against his shoulder pad for a go-ahead, 5-yard TD with 46 seconds left in the first half. Despite leading by six in the third quarter, Bryant didnt look happy. He flapped his arms and screamed at Romo on the sideline. After the loss, Bryant insisted his demonstrative actions were a result of his positive passion. "People who have a problem with me are the people that dont understand what is going on," he said. NOTES: Lions DE Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah (left ankle), WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles tendon) and CB Bill Bentley (knee) and Cowboys RG Brian Waters (triceps), CB Morris Claiborne (hamstring) and FS Barry Church (hamstring) were hurt during the game. ...
