TORONTO (Ticker) -- The Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs look to get back on the winning track Saturday when they square off at Air Canada Centre.

The Lightning have dropped two straight games following a three-game winning streak. Tampa Bay suffered a 4-2 loss to Ottawa on Thursday despite power-play goals from Brad Richards and Vincent Lecavalier.

John Grahame made 27 saves for Tampa Bay but yielded two goals in a three-minute span.

Meanwhile, the Maple Leafs have lost three of their last four games following a streak in which they won five of six.

In Thursday's 4-3 loss to Carolina, Toronto held a 3-2 advantage early in the third period before Ed Belfour surrendered a pair of goals, including the game-winner to Erik Cole with 94 seconds left.

Alexander Steen scored twice and added an assist and Matt Stajan collected a goal and two assists for the Maple Leafs, who went 0-for-6 on the power play and were outshot, 35-25.
