TAMPA Adidas Michael Grabner Jersey , Fla. (AP) — The NHL-leading Tampa Bay Lightning beat one of the Western Conference’s top teams in very convincing fashion.Steven Stamkos had two goals and two assists as the Lightning won their sixth consecutive game, romping over the Colorado Avalanche 7-1 on Saturday night.“It was fun to be a part of,” Stamkos said. “I just thought that we deserved everything that we got today, including some bounces and some breaks. But when you’re on top of the puck like we were tonight, it’s going to be tough for the other team.”Stamkos scored twice in the first period and had two second-period assists. It was his franchise-best 13th four-point game.Tampa Bay also got two goals from Ondrej Palat, and Louis Domingue made 29 saves. Tyler Johnson, Alex Killorn and Anthony Cirelli had the other Lightning goals.Nathan MacKinnon had a goal for the Avalanche, who are 10-2-2 over their last 14 games. Semyon Varlamov was pulled midway through the second period after allowing five goals on 23 shots.Philipp Grubauer replaced Varlamov and gave up two goals on 15 shots.“I don’t think there’s any positive you could take out of this game,” Grubauer said. “We made it easy for them, the best team in the league.”Tampa Bay held the high-scoring line of MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog to three points. The trio entered with 48 goals and 124 points.“We weren’t giving them time and space at all,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. “When you don’t give them any space Adidas Marian Hossa Jersey , especially the big line, it can be frustrating.”Rantanen got his NHL-leading 48th point with an assist that extended his points streak to 11 games (14 assists, 19 points).Stamkos opened the scoring from the left circle off a pass through the slot by Nikita Kucherov during a power play 3:05 into the game. Kucherov has 21 assists and 26 points over his last 13 games.“I thought it started with the PP,” Johnson said. “Getting that quick goal, I think we just kept rolling with that.”After Stamkos scored on a breakaway backhander at 13:15 of the first, MacKinnon made it 2-1 just 59 seconds later.MacKinnon has 20 goals in 30 games, which ties Joe Sakic’s Colorado team record, set in 1995-96, for the fewest games needed to reach the mark.Johnson put Tampa Bay up 3-1 late in the first.Stamkos made a pass from the left circle while falling down to Yanni Gourde, who then set up Killorn’s goal two minutes into the second that put Tampa Bay ahead 4-1.Palat and Cirelli added second-period goals.“We need to be a lot better than we were tonight,” Colorado center Tyson Jost said. “Everybody knows that.”Palat had a power-play goal in the third.NOTES: Stamkos has 67 multi-goal games. … Injured Tampa Bay G Andrei Vasilevskiy (fractured left foot) and D Anton Stralman (upper body) both took part in the morning skate. Vasilevskiy could return within the next three weeks while Stralman’s status is being reviewed on a weekly basis. … Rantanen, Landeskog and MacKinnon have a point on the same goal the 17 times. … Colorado C Vladislav Kamenev left in the first with an undisclosed injury.UP NEXTAvalanche: Return home Tuesday night to play Edmonton.Lightning: Host the New York Rangers Monday night. TAMPA Adidas Chris Wagner Jersey , Fla. (AP) — The high-powered Tampa Bay Lightning just keep on rolling.NHL points leader Nikita Kucherov had a goal and three assists, Brayden Point added a goal and two assists, and the Lightning beat the Calgary Flames 6-3 on Tuesday night.Kucherov has 88 points, including seven over his last two games after going a pair of games without getting on the scoresheet.“He has that ability to find guys even when I don’t think guys know they’re open,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said.Kucherov has a career-high 63 assists. He stopped a 10-game goal drought with a pair Sunday in a 5-2 win at Florida.“Good to see we got two games with ‘W’s,'” Kucherov said. “That’s better.”Kucherov and Point (72) are the second pair of Tampa Bay teammates to reach 70 points in 57 team games. Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier did it in 2006-07.Cedric Paquette, Anthony Cirelli, Yanni Gourde and Steven Stamkos also scored for the NHL-leading Lightning, who are 5-0-2 over the last seven games. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 19 saves.“We’ve got the top guys going and we’re getting scoring from the other guys as well,” Stamkos said. “So, that’s a pretty dangerous combination to have.”Calgary, 1-3-1 in its last five games Adidas Joakim Nordstrom Jersey , got two goals from Sean Monahan. Mark Giordano had the other Flames goal, and David Rittich stopped 21 shots.“Pretty disappointing with letting that one go the way it did,” Giordano said. “Our details weren’t where they needed to be. We’ve got to be a lot sharper and its starts with me and the leaders and the older guys and it trickles down.”Monahan didn’t have a goal in his previous five games. Teammates Matthew Tkachuk (eight) and Johnny Gaudreau (six) remain in goal droughts. The trio has combined to score 82 goals.Point scored his career-high 33rd goal to open the scoring 11:54 into the game.Point’s goal came shortly after Vasilevskiy made a save on Elias Lindholm’s short-handed breakaway.Lindholm had three assists, while Gaudreau added two.After Paquette scored at 16:06 of the first, Kucherov made it 3-0 just 1:13 later.Giordano cut the Flames’ deficit to 3-1 during a 5-on-3 power play 47 seconds after Kucherov’s goal. The 35-year old became the 10th defenseman in NHL history to have 55 or more points at age 35 or older.Calgary pulled within 3-2 on Monahan’s goal at 9:13 of the second, but Tampa Bay responded 57 seconds later when Cirelli scored.“It’s a huge shift,” Giordano said. “It’s a big part of the game. Obviously you want to grab momentum when you’re back in it.”Gourde put Tampa Bay ahead 5-2 later in the second.Stamkos reached 30 goals for the sixth time during a third-period power play.Monahan had a power-play goal late in the third.NOTES: Neither Gaudreau nor Tkachuk had a shot on goal. Monahan scored on both of his shots. … The Lightning sent rookie RW Mathieu Joseph, who has 13 goals, to Syracuse of the AHL to make room on the roster for minor league D Jan Rutta. Rutta was recalled because D Erik Cernak was scratched due to an undisclosed lower-body injury. … Tkachuk played in his 200th NHL game.UP NEXTFlames: Play at Florida on Thursday.Lightning: Hosts Dallas on Thursday.
