The Lightning are 2-6-2 in their last 10 home games.
"I'm glad that we got the result ... that's very important,"
Lightning coach John Tortorella said. "The thing I liked is how we

Donald Brashear scored for Philadelphia, 2-3-1-1 through seven

franchise record for the fastest two goals.
It was Clymer's first goal in 34 games.
"We have been working hard and we've been playing well
