TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Teddy Purcell had a goal and two assists, Martin St. Louis contributed four assists, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Philadelphia Flyers 5-1 on Sunday night.

Tampa Bay also got goals from Eric Brewer, Vincent Lecavalier, Victor Hedman and Steven Stamkos. St. Louis has eight assists and 11 points this season.

The Lightning continued their season-long domination of the third period - outscoring opponents 13-1 - with goals by Hedman and Stamkos.
