PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Vincent Lecavalier scored in regulation and then added a goal in the shootout as the Tampa Bay Lightning extended Philadelphia's franchise-worst home losing streak to 11 with a 4-3 victory over the Flyers on Tuesday night.

Martin St. Louis, and Ruslan Fedotenko also scored for the Lightning, who have won six straight road games. Brad Richards scored the other goal in the 2-0 shootout.

Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, and Peter Forsberg had goals for the Flyers, who have not won at home since Nov. 24 when they beat Columbus in former Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock's debut behind the Blue Jackets bench.

Tampa Bay's Johan Holmqvist had 29 saves before posting a perfect shootout. Robert Esche stopped 30 shots for Philadelphia.

St. Louis put Tampa Bay ahead by putting a rebound into an open net at 6:32 of the second period while the Lightning had a two-man advantage.

The Flyers responded, taking a 2-1 lead with a pair of short-handed goals.

Mike Richards picked up a loose puck deep in the Flyers zone, skated down the right side, and scored on a slap shot from the right circle 51 seconds after St. Louis' goal.
