DeAngelo followed up consecutive first star games with a second star effort Thursday in a 6-4 win over Cristiano DiGiacinto and Windsor. DiGiacinto scored the game’s opening goal and had several opportunities throughout the game while a desperate Windsor team tried to get at least a point. The Spits entered the game in a 3-way tie for eighth in the West. As for DeAngelo, he now has a 20-game point streak and is averaging more than two points per game since joining the Soo. He has 16 points in his last five games. Not everything was positive, however, as DeAngelo tried to get his first career hat trick into an open net twice while protecting a one-goal lead. The second attempt was from his own end line and caused an icing. Soo coach Sheldon Keefe took DeAngelo off the ice and sat him on the bench. The Greyhounds scored into an empty net seconds later.

NHL Game Night: 3-5-15 Maple Leafs at Lightning

Efficient.

TOR-2
TB-4

Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 27 shots for the victory.

First Period
4:25 TB Kucherov (24), (Palat, Johnson)
15:17 TB Callahan (21), (Stamkos)

Second Period
6:48 TOR Booth (2), (Holland)

Third Period
6:31 TB Namestnikov (4), (Sustr, Hedman)
15:14 TB Killorn (13), (Stamkos, Garrison)(PP)
17:42 TOR Panik (10), (Phaneuf, Kadri)

Ryan Callahan, Steven Stamkos, and Vladislav Namestnikov were the game's three stars.

That's a beautiful thing. The Lightning went out and built a 2 goal lead over 40 minutes of hockey while holding their opponent to just 14 shots, and proceeded to get the back breaker on the power play in the Third Period to get that all-important three goal lead. That last part is critical, and although it may be a mirage, it's nice to see the Lightning starting to get those put-away markers on the PP of late.

Now you put a little heat back on Montreal and see if some things can shake loose in the division crown race.

Nikita Nesterov had 1 shot and 1 hit in 14:53.

Namestnikov had a goal on a beautiful setup from Sustr and was +1 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 10:00. Made the most of his minutes, for sure.
