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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
