Flyers Shutout In Tampa 4-0

Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - Dwayne Roloson stopped all 38 shots he faced to post his fourth shutout of the season, as Tampa Bay opened up its post All- Star schedule with a convincing 4-0 victory over Philadelphia at St. Pete Times Forum.

Teddy Purcell scored twice with Steve Downie and Steven Stamkos adding a goal each for the Lightning, who have won all three meetings this season against the Atlantic Division leaders and have taken six in a row overall.

Roloson upped his record since being acquired from the Islanders to 8-3-0 for Tampa Bay, which improved to 3-0 on its current franchise-record 12-game homestand.

Sergei Bobrovsky was tagged in the loss for three goals on six shots in one period for the Flyers, who had won eight of 10 prior to the All-Star break and surged to the top of the NHL standings with the effort.

Brian Boucher finished up by allowing one score on 16 shots.
