TAMPA http://www.officialcanucks.com/authentic-adidas-sven-baertschi-jersey , Fla. (AP) — A three-point night from Steven Stamkos sent the Tampa Bay Lightning into their extended All-Star break with another victory.Stamkos scored a pair of goals in the third period and Tampa Bay beat San Jose 6-3 Saturday night.NHL points leader Nikita Kucherov added a pair of assists.Victor Hedman finished with a goal and two points.Alex Killorn, Mathieu Joseph and Yanni Gourde also scored for Tampa Bay, which is 6-2 since the Sharks ended the Lightning’s 16-game streak of consecutive games with a point on Jan. 5.Andrei Vasilevskiy made 36 saves and recorded his 20th victory of the season.Evander Kane had two goals, and Marcus Sorenson also scored for the Sharks, who dropped their second consecutive game since winning seven in a row.Martin Jones stopped 20 shots and had his personal eight-game winning streak halted.“I didn’t think the score was super indicative of how the game went,” said Kane, who has four goals in two games against Tampa Bay this season. “I thought we carried the play to be honest for most of the game. But every mistake we made or when we took penalties, they capitalized on those opportunities.”San Jose played without All-Star defenseman Erik Karlsson, who was a late scratch despite participating in warmups.“He’s been dealing with something for a little while here and he felt that he was going to be able to play through and just couldn’t Alex Tuch Jersey Kids ,” Sharks’ coach Peter DeBoer said. “We’ll see how he feels (Sunday). I don’t have a full report on what is it. We’re not going to risk anything with him.”DeBoer indicated shutting down Karlsson for the final two games before the All-Star break is an option they will consider.The Lightning pulled away in the third on a pair of goals from Stamkos. He took a pass from Kucherov and scored on a wrist shot high to the stick side at 5:08, and added a power-play goal with a one-timer off a pass from Hedman at 14:15 for his 26th goal of the season. Stamkos reached the 25-goal mark for the ninth time in his career.“It’s been a lot of fun contributing to the team with the season we’ve been having so far as a team,” Stamkos said. “I got off to a little bit of a slow start, but I feel in rounding out my game, I’ve found myself putting myself into better positions to create offense and score some more goals.”Kucherov’s two assists gave him a league-leading 56 on the season. He has 78 points overall.Joseph opened the scoring for the Lightning with his 12th of the season, taking a rebound of a shot by Anthony Cirelli and netting a backhand at 3:32. Killorn made it 2-0 on another rebound at 17:51.Kane cut the lead in half with a power-play goal with 20.1 seconds left in the first period.San Jose tied the game on the opening shift of the second period as Kane pounced on his own rebound off the end boards 58 seconds in.But Gourde answered at 7:29, while Hedman scored a power-play goal at 12:01 to regain the two-goal edge.“You have the 2-0 lead and give it up, that’s tough,” Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said. “But I thought we settled down (after the tying goal) and (Gourde) gets a big one to give us the lead. I liked the way we weathered the emotions of ‘we coughed up the lead now we need to go get it back.’ It showed a little maturity.”NOTES: Lightning RW Yanni Gourde scored his first goal since Dec. 29. .

(AP) The Tampa Bay Lightning know the grind.Back in the Eastern Conference final for the third time in four years, the Atlantic Division winners led the NHL in scoring this season but have been even more impressive defensively through the first two rounds of the playoffs.”I think if people looked at our team in the regular season … we had the most goals scored in the league or close to it. So, we’re kind of looked at as that team, the high-flying Bolts that can score and defense isn’t really important to them,” coach Jon Cooper said.”To us, all along it has been (important). To win in the playoffs, you have to have that,” Cooper added. ”Probably the one thing that’s gone under the radar is how physical we’ve been in both series. I think that’s really helped the cause to where we were. It’s difficult in an 82-game season to bring that kind of intensity every single night. In the playoffs guys are more dialed in.”Sunday’s 3-1 victory closed out the team’s second-round matchup against the Boston Bruins in five games.Coming off a week’s rest, the Lightning allowed six goals in losing Game 1.Over the last three games of the series Cody Eakin Jersey , including a pair of wins in Boston, Tampa Bay neutralized the Bruins’ high-scoring line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak while not allowing an even-strength goal.Much of the credit goes to the line of Brayden Point, Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat, which rebounded from yielding 11 points to the Bergeron line in the series opener to move than hold their own against the Boston trio the rest of the way.”It’s a four-line effort. You have to have depth. You have to have it. It’s the way everybody bought into their rolls and contributed,” Cooper said.The Lightning’s depth also showed offensively, with 12 players combining to score 17 goals in the second round.Point, J.T. Miller and Anton Stralman scored in Sunday’s clincher against Boston.”For sure, you don’t expect to come in and beat a team like that in four straight games after dropping the first one. We expected a long series Youth Colin Miller Jersey ,” Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said. ”I don’t think any team goes in thinking you are going to clean out a team in the second round in five, but it happened. When you play the right way, you get rewarded for it.”Tampa Bay is the eighth team since 1998 to reach a conference final three times in a four-year span.The Lightning defeated the New York Rangers in 2015, advancing to the Stanley Cup Final, where they lost to Chicago in six games. They lost the 2016 East final to the Pittsburgh Penguins in seven games.”It’s good, but it will be gratifying if we win two more series,” forward Ryan Callahan said. ”We’ve been here before, so the shock and awe of really getting this far really isn’t there. We are happy with our first two series, but there is so much more work to do and we realize that.”The Lightning will face either Washington or defending champion Pittsburgh. The Capitals lead that semifinal series 3-2 heading into Game 6 on Monday night.”We’ll watch it for sure Calvin De Haan Jersey Womens , but I think the most important thing at the end of the day is just getting our rest,” Point said, looking ahead. ”We’re going to be ready when our time comes, hopefully prepare well, and play some good games.”—
