Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - Bryan Little scored the deciding goal with 4:08 left to play, enabling the Winnipeg Jets to avenge an earlier lopsided loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning with a 2-1 decision over their Southeast Division rival at Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Eric Tangradi netted his first goal as a Jet and Al Montoya turned back 28- of-29 shots to help Winnipeg gain payback for last month's 8-3 shellacking at the hands of the Lightning in its most recent visit to Tampa.

The win also halted a two-game overall losing skid and was only the Jets' second in their last 11 trips to Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Steven Stamkos came through with his league-leading 18th tally of the season for the Lightning's lone score. Anders Lindback finished with 26 saves in the loss, Tampa's sixth in its past seven outings.
