TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Braydon Coburn broke a scoreless tie early in the third period and Ben Bishop made 31 saves to help the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Detroit Red Wings 2-0 on Wednesday night in Game 7 of the first-round series.
Ryan Callahan set up Coburn's third goal in 79 career postseason games with a pass through the slot to the top of the right circle, where the Tampa Bay defenseman sent a shot over goalie Petr Mrazek's right shoulder.
Anton Stralman added an empty-net goal with 1:18 remaining, ensuring the Lightning would win their first Game 7 at home since they beat Calgary in the 2004 Stanley Cup Final.
Tampa Bay, which rallied from a 3-2 series deficit, advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals against Montreal. The Canadiens host Game 1 on Friday night.
