TAMPA, Fla., April 21 (UPI) -- Jiri Tlusty scored twice in the first period Sunday and the Carolina Hurricanes rode his efforts to a 3-2 victory over Tampa Bay.

Dan Ellis turned aside 35 shots in notching the victory.

Steven Stamkos scored his 28th goal of the season and Martin St. Louis also found the net for the Lightning.

Anders Lindback made 25 stops in the loss.
