DETROIT -- The Tampa Bay Lightning ended almost 20 years of futility at Joe Louis Arena on Saturday night. Teddy Purcells goal at 3:51 of overtime gave Tampa Bay a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings. It was the Lightnings first win in Detroit since Jan. 12, 1994. They had been 0-10-1 at Joe Louis Arena since then and had an all-time record in Detroit of 1-13-1. "That was in the past. There a new staff, a new team," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. "We need to win games here if were going to have any chance of making the playoffs." The teams are now both in the Eastern Conferences Atlantic Division. Ryan Malone and Steven Stamkos also scored for Tampa Bay. Ben Bishop stopped 25 shots. "We stayed with it and its a good feeling right now," Stamkos said. Henrik Zetterberg scored both goals for Detroit, which lost its fifth straight at home. Jimmy Howard made 31 saves. "In the end we got ourselves a point in a game we could have come up with nothing. So good for us," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "What I didnt like was when we lost our composure, when we gave up chances for no reason. Their speed with our inability to move the puck from the back today made us slower. I thought they were a quicker team than we were." Purcell got his fifth goal, from the slot, after a pass from Richard Panik preceded by Kyle Quinceys turnover behind the Detroit net. "Panik made a great play on the forecheck to pressure him and was able to throw it out in front," Purcell said. Babcock said: "We had the puck and Q (Quincey) was coming around the net and their guy was quicker and stole it from him." Zetterberg tied the game with 4:12 left in the third on a slap shot from the right circle for his second of the game and 10th goal of the season. Stamkos gave the Lightning a 2-1 lead with 7:10 left in the second period. He beat Howard with a wrist shot from the right circle. Stamkos 14th goal came four seconds after Tampa Bay had killed off 5:24 of consecutive Detroit power-play time with 36 seconds of it a two-man advantage. In all, the Lightning had only been at even strength for 13 seconds of the previous 7:37 when the final penalty ended. "That was probably the turning point," Purcell said. "... Very difficult to kill six or eight minutes of a power play. And then Stammer gets one shot and scores." The goal extended Stamkos goal streak to six games and his points streak to eight. The Red Wings have scored on only one of their past 20 power-play chances. "It was better tonight than last game. Its something we have to work on. Its really important to take advantage of that," Zetterberg said. "You got to practice on it, put more time on it. We have to really bear down when we get our chances and score goals." Zetterberg opened the scoring 3:51 into the game when he intercepted Stamkos pass in the slot and put a wrist shot past Bishop. Malone tied it at 1 with 9:49 remaining in the opening period when he put in the rebound of his own wrap-around attempt. It was Malones second goal.

MIAMI -- LeBron James says his new protective mask is hot, uncomfortable and prone to fogging up. Plus, as teammate Dwyane Wade pointed out, it looks weird. So James is in the market for design suggestions. "Ive been talking to Marvel Comics for the last couple of days, and DC Comics, to try to come up with one of the greatest masks of all time," James said with a chuckle Wednesday. "So well see what happens." James spoke after trying out his new mask for the first time in practice. He plans to use it Thursday when the Miami Heat play the New York Knicks. The game will be the first for James since he broke his nose last Thursday in a victory at Oklahoma City. He and his mask took part in contact drills Wednesday, and coach Erik Spoelstra was encouraged by James progress. "Hell give it a shot Thursday," Spoelstra said. "He was able to go through today without any hiccups. But he also didnt take a hit today." Given James aggressive style of play, hes bound to receive an inadvertent blow to the face sooner or later. Thus the mask. "It lessens the impact," said James, who wore a mask 10 years ago to protect a broken cheek. "You can still feel it, because the nose is still tender. But it definitely lessens the pain." James had removed his clear mask by the time media were admitted to the gym for the end of practice, but teammates provided a description. "He looked like every other player in a mask -- it looks weird," Wade said. "He looks like the LeBron that wore a mask the first time, only about 30 pounds heavier, a little more muscular, a little less hair." Said Shane Battier with a grin: "As long as No. 6 is in uniform, he looks all right to me." James was on a roll when hurt. On Thursday hell try for his fifth consecutive 30-point game, which would be the second-longest such streak in Heat history. The Heat have won five consecutive games and trail Easstern Conference leader Indiana by one game.dddddddddddd But theyve been prone to stumble against weak opponents, and their next three games are at home against team with losing records -- the Knicks, Magic and Bobcats. Nine of the Heats 14 defeats, including one against the Knicks, have come versus teams that are below .500. "You dont want to lose to the good teams. And you dont want to lose to the teams that arent as good," Wade said. "So then you would be 82-0. Youve got to lose to somebody. You cant play your A game for 82 games, so you have some of those moments. It happens to every team. Were no different." Lately the two-time defending NBA champions have been consistently on their A game, in part because of stout defence. They held Oklahoma City to 81 points, which tied the Thunders season low, then held Chicago to 79 in a victory Sunday as an antsy James watched from the bench. The injury-plagued Knicks have lost their past three games, and in their season of upheaval, the latest jarring development came Tuesday. Point guard Raymond Felton was arraigned on two felony weapons possession charges following an early-morning arrest. After going 54-28 last season, the Knicks are 21-36. "They havent forgotten how to play," Spoelstra said. "Theyve been injury-riddled all year long, and thats tough to deal with. That adversity coming into our game is irrelevant. Im sure theyll be ready." The Knicks split two games earlier this season against Miami, and theyre one of the few teams with a player who can match James basket for basket. Carmelo Anthony has scored more than 40 points in three of the past four games. James said hes sorry to see his friend endure such a difficult season in the standings. "I want him to win, and I want him to succeed," James said. "Obviously he has been playing great basketball, but I definitely dont like seeing him lose the way theyve been losing." ' ' '
