While the high-scoring Tampa Bay Lightning are off to a great start, coach Guy Boucher feels they're capable of better - especially in the second period.
The Lightning's efforts against the Philadelphia Flyers over the previous two seasons haven't left much room for improvement.
Seeking a third consecutive win, Tampa Bay tries to continue its recent dominance of visiting Philadelphia on Sunday.
Tied for the league lead with 4.8 goals per game, the Lightning (3-1-0) are coming off Friday's 6-4 win over previously undefeated Ottawa. Defenseman Matt Carle, who spent the previous three-plus seasons with Philadelphia before singing with Tampa Bay, gave his team an early 1-0 lead and Ryan Malone scored the game-tying and go-ahead goals in the third period as the Lightning improved to 2-0-0 at home.
The Lightning haven't won their first three games on their own ice since opening 5-0-0 in 2007-08.
"We go back to the game plan of just playing simple hockey," Malone said.
