Lightning looking to turn around woes vs. Flyers

Tampa Bay (6-10-7) at Philadelphia (11-7-5), 7:00 pm EST

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Tampa Bay Lightning haven't won on

the road since the last time they were in the "City of Brotherly

Love."

Captain Vincent Lecavalier and the Lightning will try to end a

four-game winless streak Tuesday when they visit the

Philadelphia Flyers.

Tampa Bay has gone just 1-3-3 since Rick Tocchet replaced Barry

Melrose behind the bench, failing to win away from the St. Pete

Times Forum over that stretch. The Lightning's last win on the

road was at Philadelphia on November 8.

Since that 2-1 triumph, Tampa Bay has posted just one win in ten

games and made a debatable coaching change.

Lecavalier, who was rumored to be instrumental in Melrose's

departure after just 16 games, leads the club with 10 goals and

20 points on the season.

The streaky Flyers have dropped back-to-back contests (one in

overtime) after winning six games in a row.

Captain Mike Richards had a pair of goals Saturday, but

Philadelphia still suffered a 4-2 setback to the Toronto Maple

Leafs.
