Game Recap: TB 5 - PHI 3

Gettin lazy again. Valentines day and all.

From TSN:

PHILADELPHIA - Martin St. Louis had a goal and two assists to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 5-3 win over Philadelphia on Thursday night, the Flyers' fifth straight loss.

Steve Downie, Joffrey Lupul and Jeff Carter each scored for the Flyers, who are on their longest losing streak since a six-game skid in late December.

Vaclav Prospal scored his 26th goal and Dan Boyle, Jan Hlavac and Jason Ward also scored for the Lightning, who had to look good to their new management.

Tampa Bay, which started the night in last place in the Eastern Conference, has won four of five overall. The Lightning also won their eighth straight game in Philadelphia going back to the 2002-03 season and have not lost a road game in regulation since Jan. 3.

Trailing 2-1 entering the second period, the Lightning touched Biron for three goals in the period that allowed them to take over the game.

Boyle, who missed 36 games this season after wrist surgery, tied the score with a power-play goal early in the period.

Hlavac's eighth goal of the season midway through the second put Tampa Bay ahead for good, 3-2.

Boyle tried for his second goal of the game later in the period, but his slapshot bounced off St. Louis' stick and the puck popped over Biron's shoulder for a 4-2 lead.
