DETROIT - Ben Bishop made 28 saves for his sixth career shutout and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-0 on Sunday.

Tyler Johnson, J.T. Brown and Teddy Purcell scored.

Petr Mrazek stopped 24 shots for Detroit, which lost its fifth in a row.

Johnson opened the scoring 3:13 into the third period, tipping in a loose puck from the front of the net for his eighth goal.

Brown scored at 9:16, beating Mrazek on a tip off Nate Thompson's pass from the corner.

Purcell added an empty-net goal.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
