NHL: Steven Stankos scores three points to give the Flyers a 4-0 win over Lightning

Steven Stamkos had three points, and four separate scorers helped the Tampa Bay Lightning to an easy 4-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

For his part, Andrei Vasilevsky made 34 saves, his first shutout of the season and 27th in his career in the NHL.

The first game Tampa (11-4-3) played after forward Braden Point fell into action, he would be absent for four to six weeks.

In addition to Stamkos, who scored his 10th goal of the season, Jack Bogosian and Corey Perry also hit lightning strikes. Both players have yet to find the back of the net earlier this year.

Cubes Alex Barre-Boulette, who was promoted to the Stamcos trio due to a point injury, scored another goal for Jon Cooper after beating Carter Hart with a sharp shot after its captain won a throw-in game.

Stamkos now has 493 points on the Tampa Rink, which puts him ahead of Martin St.-Louis (491) in this chapter in Lightning history.

The Flyers (8-6-3) were hit for the second time in a row.

Slight luck to the flame

A little luck helped the Calgary Flames to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks.

With less than six minutes to go in the third period, the two teams drew 2-2, with Matthew Takachuk trying to catch teammate Johnny Goudrow on the net for the Blackhawks. However, the puck deflected over defenseman Seth Jones and fell behind Mark-Andre Fleury.

Flames added two goals in the empty net after thanks to Trevor Lewis and Goudrow. The Alberta Troops recorded their fourth consecutive victory and increased their lead over the Edmonton Oilers to three points, topping the Pacific Division with 29 points.

The Flames goaltender was not busy in the game with 21 shots against his goal. Mark-Andre Fleury stood for the Hawks with 34 saves.
