Maple Leafs beat NHL-leading Lightning 4-2

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Although they trail Tampa Bay by 14 points in the standings, the Toronto Maple Leafs are having some head-to-head success against the top team in the NHL.

Mitch Marner scored a go-ahead goal late in the second period, Nazem Kadri and Patrick Marleau each had a goal and an assist, and the Maple Leafs beat the Lightning 4-2 on Thursday night.

"I think we embrace the challenge of playing against the best, and I think we've proved time and time again even though there's tough parts to the season we compete with the best," Kadri said. "I think that's an important note to take out of this game."
