Previous Game: Ducks Come Up Short in Loss to Lightning

Thursday, 11.14.2013 / 10:45 PM / News
TAMPA -- Emerson Etem scored Anaheim's lone goal in a 5-1 loss to the Lightning at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Martin St. Louis and Valtteri Filppula each had three points, and goaltender Ben Bishop made 24 saves for his NHL-leading 13th win for the Lightning.

"It was a tough one. Not a really good start for us," said Ducks forward Mathieu Perreault. "They got the lead and [we thought] This can’t be happening to us. Even though we had a couple guys who are injured, we need to battle harder for sure."

The win put Tampa Bay's record against the Western Conference at 7-0-0. The Lightning (14-5-0) open a western road trip Saturday against the Phoenix Coyotes and play their next four games against those teams.

The Lightning built their lead to 4-0 with two second-period goals before Anaheim got on the scoreboard.

Filppula scored his second goal of the game on a power play 3:16 into the second. It was the second time this season the forward had two in a game.

Alex Killorn charged the Anaheim net and lifted a rebound over Jonas Hiller at 10:51. St. Louis had an assist on each of the second-period goals.

Anaheim's Emerson Etem found some open ice in front of the Tampa Bay net and scored his fifth goal of the season at 16:07.

The Ducks will close out the second of back-to-backs tomorrow night in Raleigh.

"The positive is we started out the last road trip 0-and-2 and we finished off strong," said Etem. "That’s our goal, to get two big wins coming up. We’ve just got to get back to playing the game we know we can play. That’s playing simple, getting a lot of shots on net and getting the shots on net early. We’re going to get back to that."
