Ondrej Palat scored a pair of goals as the Tampa Bay Lightning picked up a 4-2 road win against the Arizona Coyotes Saturday night.
Palat scored the game-winner 3:27 into the third as he skated in on former Bolts goaltender Mike Smith and beat the veteran goalie blocker side for his 14th goal of the season.
The Bolts (37-18-6) extended their lead to 3-1 when Callahan scored his 18th goal of the season. Defenceman Mark Barberio had skated around the net and just as he was about to shoot, Callahan shot the puck at the same time confusing Smith who was beaten short-side.
Mark Arcobello got Arizona (20-32-7) within a goal at 11:42 of the third as he capitalized on a Steven Stamkos turnover to score on a breakaway. However, Stamkos would seal the win on the power play with an empty net goal with less than five seconds to play.
Tampa Bay went 2-for-6 with the man advantage while Arizona failed to capitalize on their lone opportunity.
Tampa Bay completes its five-game road trip Sunday when they play the Colorado Avalanche.
