DETROIT - Ben Bishop made 28 saves for his sixth career shutout and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-0 on Sunday.

Tyler Johnson, J.T. Brown and Alex Killorn scored.

Petr Mrazek stopped 24 shots for Detroit, which lost its fifth in a row.

Johnson opened the scoring 3:13 into the third period, tipping in a loose puck from the front of the net for his eighth goal.

Brown scored at 9:16, beating Mrazek on a tip off Nate Thompson's pass from the corner.

Killorn added an empty-net goal.

Detroit's Johan Franzen went to the dressing room after taking a glove to the face from Tampa Bay's Radko Gudas early in the second period and did not return. When Franzen got back to the bench he yelled at Gudas as he skated by the Wings' bench and Franzen received an unsportsmanlike penalty 4:35 into the middle period. Todd Bertuzzi served the penalty.

The Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk hit the goal post with 6:08 remaining in the opening period. The Lightning's Purcell hit the goal post 7:12 into the game.

NOTE: An apparent goal by Detroit's Gustav Nyquist 2:02 into the game was waved off because it was ruled the whistle had blown. The puck was beside Bishop in the crease. ... The Red Wings recalled RW Tomas Jurco from their AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids on Sunday and he made his NHL debut. He replaced LW Justin Abdelkader in the lineup. Abdelkader is going through the NHL's possible concussion procedure after taking a shoulder to the head from Pittsburgh's Deryk Engelland on Saturday night. ... Tampa Bay C Valtteri Filppula is a former Red Wing. He signed with the Lightning as a free agent in July. ... Lightning vice-president and general manager Steve Yzerman played his entire Hall of Fame career with Detroit.
