PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Tampa Bay Lightning have used the Philadelphia Flyers as a punching bag over the last several years. Thursday's meeting was a second-round knockout.

Martin St. Louis scored his second goal of the game in the middle session and Tim Taylor added a tally late in the period as the Lightning skated to a 5-2 victory over the Flyers.

Entering with a three-game losing streak, the Lightning could not have asked for a better opponent. They now have won 10 straight regular-season meetings with the Flyers, in addition to defeating them in the Eastern Conference finals in 2004.

Tampa Bay took control in the second period, turning a 1-0 lead into a three-goal advantage. Philadelphia came back with two goals in a 21-second span late in the third period but was unable to get the equalizer past Johan Holmqvist, who finished
with 30 saves to post his first NHL victory.
