Filppula's goal helps Lightning beat Flyers 6-3, snap Philly's home-winning streak at 10

PHILADELPHIA - Valtteri Filppula scored the go-ahead goal during a wild second period and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Flyers 6-3 Saturday to snap Philadelphia's 10-game home winning streak.

Ryan Malone had two goals, Alex Killorn, Teddy Purcell, and Martin St. Louis also scored goals for the Lightning, who moved into a tie with Boston for first place in the Atlantic Division.

Jakub Voracek had two goals and Wayne Simmonds also scored for the Flyers, who were 7-1 in their previous eight games. The Flyers hadn't lost at home since Nov. 5 against Carolina.

Goaltender Steve Mason had his worst game for Philadelphia, allowing five goals for the first time in 41 games with the team since being acquired last April. He was pulled for Ray Emery after the second period.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
