TORONTO - Tyler Johnson is a tough man to keep down.

One night after he took a shot in the face that caused his visor to shatter and open an 11-stitch cut over his left eye, Johnson scored two goals to help the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 2-1 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre on Monday.

Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy made 31 saves to earn his 11th victory of the season. Tampa Bay (37-22-4) has won seven in a row.
