The Tampa Bay Lightning have rolled over a lot of teams on the way to the NHL's best record. Their latest win came against an Anaheim Ducks team that had handed them one of their two regulation losses this season. J.T. Brown scored the tiebreaking goal in the third period, leading the Lightning to a 2-1 victory Sunday night for their fourth straight win. Vladislav Namestnikov also scored for Tampa Bay and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 28 shots. "It was definitely a goaltending duel tonight," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. Anaheim goalie John Gibson had 35 saves and was put under almost constant pressure, particularly in the first two periods when the Lightning outshot the Ducks 29-14. "We didn't have a very good start obviously," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "They managed the puck, had control of the puck much more than we did early in the hockey game. We were standing around watching. We were playing in awe of them." Jakob Silfverberg scored Anaheim's lone goal.
