Flyers stymied by Stamkos, Lightning
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Steven Stamkos had two goals and an assist, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 on Thursday night.
Vladislav Namestnikov and Jason Garrison scored the other Lightning goals. Tampa Bay has beaten the Flyers seven straight times at home, dating to February 2011.
Wayne Simmonds, Jakub Voracek and Michael Raffl netted goals for the Flyers, who had won three in a row.
After Stamkos gave Tampa Bay a 3-1 lead with his eighth goal this season from the left circle at 5:30 of the third, Voracek's in-close shot made it a one-goal game again 68 seconds later.
Garrison made it 4-2, snapping his 28-game goal drought, on the power play with 3:12 to play. Raffl cut the Flyers' deficit back to one in the final minute.
