Recap: Detroit vs. Tampa Bay

Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Ben Bishop made 28 saves to record his third shutout of the season, and the Tampa Bay Lightning halted a seven-game road losing streak by topping the Detroit Red Wings, 3-0.

Tyler Johnson, J.T. Brown and Alex Killorn all scored in the third period for Tampa Bay, which won away from home for the first time since Nov. 12 at Montreal.

"We've had some pretty good luck against Detroit so far this year," said Bishop. "They're a good team over there. I thought the guys did a good job eliminating second chances. I was able to see most of the pucks. We did a good job."

Petr Mrazek, making his second start of the season, stopped 24 shots in Detroit's fifth consecutive loss.

"We're not scoring as a group right now at all," said Detroit head coach Mike Babcock. "So we have to continue to check real well and not give up much. I thought it was a tight game both ways. We've got to find a way to win a game."

A turnover by Detroit in its zone led to Johnson ending the scoreless stalemate. Tomas Tatar gave the puck away and the Lightning capitalized in transition, with Ondrej Palat feeding Johnson in the slot for a one-timer at the 3:13 mark of the final frame.

Brown doubled the advantage when he went to the crease and tapped in Nate Thompson's pass behind Mrazek at 9:16.

With 7:43 remaining, Palat was whistled for hooking, but Detroit failed to break through on its third power play.

Killorn was awarded an empty-net goal with 1:15 to play.
