Recap


Lightning 5, Ducks 1: Valtteri Filppula recorded a pair of goals and an assist as Tampa Bay rolled past visiting Anaheim for its ninth victory in 11 games.

Captain Martin St. Louis, who had been held off the scoresheet in each of the last five contests, contributed a goal and two assists while defenseman Victor Hedman had one of each for the Lightning. Ben Bishop turned aside 24 shots for his league-leading 13th victory as the Eastern Conference leaders in points beat the top team in the West.

Emerson Etem scored for Anaheim, which has dropped two straight after a nine-game point streak (8-0-1). Jonas Hiller made 15 saves for Ducks after sitting out the last three contests. 

Filppula hammered home a one-timer at the right circle after a cross-ice pass from Teddy Purcell to give Tampa Bay the lead 11:52 into the contest. Filppula’s shot from the top of the right circle deflected off J.T. Brown in front and St. Louis tapped it in at the left post for a power-play goal with 3:35 left in the opening period.

The Lightning converted with the man advantage again 3:16 into the middle period when Filppula skated in from the right wing and beat Hiller glove side. Alex Killorn chipped in his own rebound 7:35 later for a 4-0 lead before Etem beat two defensemen and ripped a shot past Bishop with 3:53 left in the second.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf, who leads the team in scoring, missed his third consecutive game with an upper-body injury. … Lightning D Sami Salo was held out for a second straight game with a lower-body injury, but coach Jon Cooper said he will likely play on the four-game trip to the West Coast that starts in Phoenix on Saturday. … Anaheim sent G Frederik Andersen (6-1-0) and D Sami Vatanen to Norfolk of the American Hockey League while G Viktor Fasth was activated from injured reserve.
