Lightning score 3 goals in 3rd period to hold off Flyers

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Richard Panik, Eric Brewer and Steven Stamkos had third-period goals to help the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 on Thursday night.

Tyler Johnson had the other goal for Tampa Bay, which moved within a point of Montreal for second place in the Atlantic Division.

Wayne Simmonds and Sean Couturier scored for the playoff-bound Flyers, who are tied for third in the Metropolitan Division with Columbus.

Anders Lindback played in place of injured Tampa Bay starting goalie Ben Bishop, who may not be ready for the start of a playoff series next week against Montreal due to an upper-body. Bishop, 37-14-7 this season, left Tuesday night's game against Toronto early in the first period after it appeared he hurt his left elbow.
