Yippee, goals.

The Tampa Bay Lightning , scoreless, punchless and hapless in its last two games, finally found the net again Thursday night in a 4-2 victory over Chicago. It snapped a three-game losing streak for the Bolts.

In all, the Bolts’ scoreless streak lasted 1:46.50 of ice time.

Brayden Point’s tip-in snapped this streak and tied the game at one. Mikhail Sergachev scored his first goal of the season to put the Bolts up 2-1.

Former Lightning forward Corey Perry tied the game, but Victor Hedman knocked in the winning goal. Brandon Hagel added an empty-netter.

Goaltender Jonas Johansson faced just 15 shots, making 13 saves for his fifth win.

Anthony Cirelli left the game with a hand injury.

The Bolts are home in Amalie Arena against Edmonton at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
