Mar 17, 2007 - 2:38 AM
TAMPA, Florida (Ticker) -- Jason Pominville is heating up for the Buffalo Sabres.

Pominville scored two goals, including the eventual game-winner, as the Sabres posted a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The right wing has scored in three straight games for Buffalo (46-19-6), which extended its lead to four points over the idle New Jersey Devils (43-20-8) for first place in the Eastern Conference.

Pominville netted the clincher when he took a pass from Daniel Briere and beat Tampa Bay goaltender Marc Denis between the pads to give Buffalo a 3-1 lead at 10:24 of the first period.

Vincent Lecavalier scored twice for the Lightning (39-29-4), who fell four points behind the Atlanta Thrashers for first place in the Southeast Division.

Lecavalier, who leads the league with a career-high 48 goals, has six tallies in his last five contests.
