Lightning tie franchise record with tenth-straight win

Pat Maroon scored the lone goal and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 23 saves as the Lightning shut out the Flyers 1-0 on Saturday night.

The victory pushes Tampa Bay's winning streak to a franchise record-tying ten games.

Offensively, the Lightning got all they would need on a second period goal from Maroon. Anthony Cirelli flipped the puck into the offensive zone and Maroon was able to win the puck from Matt Niskanen and fire the puck past Carter Hart.

For the second-straight game, a lot of the credit for the shutout belongs to the skaters in front of Vasilevskiy. Tampa Bay limited the Philadelphia to only 23 shots on goal and kept the Flyers scoring chances to a minimum.

When he was called upon, Vasilevskiy came up big. His best save of the night came five minutes into the third period when he stretched out to rob Travis Sanheim on a redirection in the crease. He was also sharp on the power play, making five saves as the Bolts' PK was perfect in three opportunities.

The Lightning will face a quick turnaround as they now travel to New Jersey to face the Devils on Sunday night.
