Tampa Bay Lightning at San Jose Sharks

Tampa Bay Lightning at San Jose Sharks”

Stamkos had three assists for Tampa Bay.

National Hockey League scoring leader Steven Stamkos needs only to look across the dressing room to keep track of his closest competitor.

That first line of Stamkos, Kucherov, and Namestnikov was particularly effective on Wednesday night because they were able to connect a number of sharp passes that set up clear shots on goal. "It was nice to get rewarded". "We turned pucks over, didn't forecheck and they felt comfortable". And partly that's on us. Numerous shots allowed on Vasilevskiy were simple for the netminder to stop, as the Lightning defense did a good job after that first shift at limiting the quality of chances that the Sharks would get. "But, no doubt, they create a lot as well".

Sharks starter Martin Jones allowed four goals on 21 shots and was pulled after two periods.

The Sharks (8-6-0) saw their four-game winning streak end.

"We didn't do anything well", coach Peter DeBoer said.

Sharks forward Joonas Donskoi opened the scoring 25 seconds into the contest, but were unable to score over the next 59:35.

"It's fun", Stamkos said. "Great response in the second and third".

"That was our best period all year", Stamkos said. That's against a really good team.

The game was tied 1-1 after the first period, but Tampa Bay built a 4-1 lead in the second.

Koekkoek made it 3-1 at 9:21 when he scored on a backhand between Jones' pads from close range. 5, Tampa Bay, Namestnikov 6 (Kucherov, Stamkos), 12:00. "If you miss assignments and leave them alone, they'll bury them".

The Sharks and Lightning traded goals and were tied 1-1 after 20 minutes.

"We were just uncharacteristic at times", Pavelski said. "When you play an elite team, you've got to bring your A game and we didn't do that across the board". 2, Tampa Bay, Dotchin 1 (Gourde, Point), 7:17. "That's not what we wanted".

Goalies_Tampa Bay, Vasilevskiy 12-1-1 (33 shots-32 saves).

NOTES: Tampa Bay RW Chris Kunitz appeared in his 900th career game. San Jose D Marc-Edouard Vlasic rejoined the blue line after missing one game because of a head injury.

The Lightning will be back in action late on Thursday night as their California swing continues. San Jose hosts Vancouver on Saturday. C Ryan Carpenter and D Dylan DeMelo were San Jose's healthy scratches.
