NEWARK, N.J.— Louis Domingue stopped 26 shots against his former team as the New Jersey Devils beat Tampa Bay 3-1 Sunday night, ending the Lightning’s franchise record-tying 10-game winning streak.

Travis Zajac, Andy Greene and Miles Wood scored for the disappointing Devils, who fired General Manager Ray Shero less than two hours before the start of the game. New Jersey made the playoffs once in his four-plus year tenure.
