PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Andrei Vasilevskiy turned away all 32 shots he faced to pick up his second consecutive shutout, leading the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 3-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat and Jonathan Drouin scored goals for the Lightning, who extended their win streak to four games and improved their record to 12-6-1.

The Flyers (8-8-3) lost in regulation for the first time since Nov. 11, ending a 2-0-1 streak. They went 0-for-5 on the power play.

In his last appearance, Vasilevskiy stopped 24 shots in a 4-0 win over the New York Islanders. The Lightning hasn’t lost since then, outscoring their opponents 15-4 on their road trip, which ends Monday night in Nashville.

They return home to play the Flyers again on Wednesday before hosting the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday.
