TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ Cedric Paquette scored his first two NHL goals as Tampa Bay finished a perfect four-game homestand.

Tampa Bay also got goals from Brian Boyle, Tyler Johnson and Valtteri Filppula. The Lightning had scored 15 goals during three wins earlier in the homestand against Arizona, Philadelphia and Washington.

Jiri Hudler and Sean Monahan scored for the Flames, who had won three in a row. Mark Giordano had two assists.

After Paquette scored 61 seconds into the second period, Boyle put Tampa Bay up 3-1 at 4:02 on the rebound after Jonas Hiller stopped the forward’s initial shot during a short-handed breakaway.

Monahan’s power-play goal 20 seconds after Boyle scored cut the Calgary deficit to 3-2.

Johnson’s first goal in 12 games made it 4-2 at 40 seconds of the third, and Filppula added an empty-net goal with 2:10 to play.
