Shootout
PHI- Richards, Timonen
TB- Moore

Dominic Moore and Victor Hedman were the game's first and third stars.

I give a lot of credit for how the Lightning responded to falling behind by a pair of goals. They responded to adversity the exact opposite to how they did in the last Buffalo game, and that's a welcome sight to see.

Good news/bad news: the Lightning fall 5 points back of the Flyers for 1st place in the conference, but they did move to 6 points ahead of Washington in the Southeast Division with 25 games left in the regular season.

Johan Harju was +1 in 8:24.

Michael Vernace had his first NHL assist and was +1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 10:44.
