Posted: Updated:

TAMPA, Fla. -- Former Spokane Chief Tyler Johnson scored his second goal of the season as the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Minnesota Wild 3-1 on Thursday night.


Johnson, the AHL MVP last season for the Syracuse Crunch, scored on a power play goal in the first period on a wrister past Minnesota netminder Josh Harding.  The Spokane native has now scored in three consecutive games after notching assists against the L.A. Kings and Pittsburgh Penguins in his two previous games.

Johnson now has 10 points on 5 goals and 5 assists in his 21-game NHL career.
