RALEIGH, N.C. - Mark Barberio scored his first two career goals and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 on Sunday to move into a tie for first place in the Atlantic Division.

Ondrej Palat had a goal and two assists, and he and Barberio scored 1:23 apart during the Lightning's three-goal first period that also included a goal from Nikita Kucherov.

Teddy Purcell also scored for the Lightning, who pulled even with Boston atop the division with 62 points.

Ben Bishop made a career-high 48 saves for Tampa Bay. He shut out the Hurricanes in his only other two appearances in Raleigh, including a 3-0 victory on Nov. 1.

Alexander Semin, Eric Staal and Ron Hainsey each scored after Carolina fell behind 4-0.

Justin Peters gave up three goals on seven shots and exited with 4:53 left in the first.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
