TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Teddy Purcell scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 on Monday night. Purcell's in-close deflection at 9:25 of the third came shortly after the Lightning killed off a short-handed situation. Ondrej Palat, Tom Pyatt and Steven Stamkos also scored for Tampa Bay, which improved to 12-1 when leading after the first period. Stamkos scored his 21st goal this season into an empty net with 3 seconds to play. Maxime Talbot and Claude Giroux had goals as Philadelphia fell to 0-11 when trailing entering the second period. Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen played in his 1,000th NHL game on his 38th birthday. He is the 282nd NHL player, and sixth from Finland, to reach the milestone. Pyatt put the Lightning up 2-1 after skating down the slot and redirecting Tyler Johnson's pass past Ilya Bryzgalov with 2:57 left in the first. Giroux got the Flyers even at 2 from the left circle at 15...

Would Tampa Bay Lightning trade Martin St. Louis?

So this is pure speculation and makes sense only Martin St. Louis, with a no-move clause in his contract, determines leaving gives him the best chance to again play for a winner before he retires. Consider these circumstances: When St. Louis in July 2010 signed a four-year, $22.5 million contract extension, he did so with the notion the organization, under new ownership and management...

He suffered a shoulder injury after the Flyers’ Zac Rinaldo drove into his left shoulder...

Lightning all over the Flyers in win

The Lightning were outshot 30-27 by the Philadelphia Flyers but their aggressiveness proved to be too much to matchup with. Goalie Anders Lindback got the start in net for the Bolts and stopped 28 of 30 shots to help Tampa Bay win 4-2.  Steven Stamkos contributed big Monday night. Stamkos got his 200th goal, albeit an empty net, to make him the third fastest to reach that mark among...

Game 27 Inside the Numbers: Hurricanes at Lightning

A 4-1 loss where the losing team manages to create only 11 total scoring chances is pretty bad and that's what happened to the Hurricanes last night against Tampa Bay. It's easy to write off this game as a poor effort by the entire team, but I think that's just a lazy way of analyzing the game. There were several players on the Hurricanes who worked hard and had good...
