The Tampa Bay Lightning (35-11-6) defeated the Ottawa Senators (19-28-5) 5-2 on Tuesday night at Amalie Arena.
The Senators scored the first two goals of the game - on the first two shots of the first period - when Tyler Ennis and Zach Sanford both scored. The Lightning were able to tie the game before the first period ended with goals from Nikita Kucherov and Brayden Point to make it into a new game.
The Lightning got second period goals from Steven Stamkos and Corey Perry, and a third period goal from Mikhail Sergachev, as the Lightning took control of the game en route to a 5-2 win.
After allowing goals on the first two shots he faced, Andrei Vasilevsky made the next 25 saves in a row to pick up the victory. Ottawa would finish the game 0-for-4 on the power play, a key difference in this game.
The Lightning continue a three game homestand when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night. Puck drop Thursday is scheduled for 7:00 PM - pregame coverage begins at 6:00 PM on News Radio WFLA.
