The Lightning did well to capitalize on some early penalties to stake themselves to a 2-0 lead and they never really looked back. Phoenix had a bit better play at even strength, but the Lightning turned it up when they needed to in order to salt the game away in the third. NHL teams should beware: the Lecavalier line is starting to click.
