PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Tom Sestito scored his first two goals in three years to lead the Philadelphia Flyers over the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Ilya Bryzgalov made 21 saves, shutting down the NHL's highest-scoring team to help the Flyers win their second straight game and improve to 4-6.

The Lightning, who entered averaging 4.9 goals per game, had dominated the series, winning seven of the previous nine meetings.

Benoit Pouliot scored for Tampa Bay. Steven Stamkos was held without a point for the first time this season as the Lightning (6-3) lost their second consecutive game.

Less than 2 minutes after Pouliot tied it in the third period, Sestito scored the go-ahead goal on a nearly identical move.
