TAMPA Authentic Alexander Wennberg Jersey , Fla. (AP) — Adam Erne made a strong case for more playing time with the NHL-leading Tampa Bay Lightning.The 23-year-old forward scored twice in the third period, including the go-ahead goal with 1:02 left, and the Lightning extended their point streak to 14 games with a 6-5 victory Saturday night over the Montreal Canadiens.After tying it 5-all at 9:36 of the third, Erne got the winner from the right circle.“Late in the game we wanted to work the puck down low in their zone and make sure we didn’t turn it over,” he said.The left wing had been scratched in eight of the previous 15 games.“I’m just trying to earn my spot,” Erne said. “Each night it’s an opportunity to prove to the coaches and the management staff that I can be in the lineup each night.”Nikita Kucherov extended his point streak to 10 games (six goals, 15 assists) with a goal and an assist for Tampa Bay. He is the 14th player in NHL history to post multiple point streaks of 10 or more games in consecutive seasons. The only other player to do so since 1994-95 is Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin (2007-08 and 2008-09).The Lightning, who are 13-0-1 during their current run, also got goals from Yanni Gourde, Anton Stralman and Tyler Johnson. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 33 saves.Tampa Bay (30-7-2) has 62 points through 39 games, the same amount as the 1976-77 Montreal Canadiens, who set the NHL record for most points in a season with 132.This is the fastest Tampa Bay has reached 30 victories.Andrew Shaw had two goals Chris Terry Jersey Womens , and Kenny Agostino, Jordie Benn and Brett Kulak also scored for the Canadiens. Phillip Danault had three assists, and Antti Niemi stopped 26 shots.Montreal was coming off a 5-3 win Friday night at Florida.“There’s a lot of good things,” Canadiens coach Claude Julien said. “This is a team that was waiting for us. They’re the best team in the league right now, and I thought with a little bit of luck we could have easily got out of here with one, maybe two points.”Goals by Kulak, his first in 31 games, and Shaw in a 52-second span gave the Canadiens a 5-4 advantage with 6:49 left in the second.Kucherov had a power-play goal and Johnson added one at even strength 38 seconds later as Tampa Bay grabbed a 4-3 lead 8½ minutes into the second.Montreal took a 2-0 lead midway through the first when Shaw, on the power play, and Agostino scored 16 seconds apart.After Tampa Bay got goals from Gourde and Stralman, Benn ended a 27-game goal drought to put the Canadiens up 3-2 with 2:25 left in the first.Benn’s goal came 28 seconds after Gourde scored.Montreal was without goalie Carey Price for the second consecutive game. The 301-game winner has a lower-body injury and didn’t make the trip.NOTES: Chicago senior adviser Scotty Bowman, who coached the Stanley Cup champion Canadiens in 1976-77 Dennis Cholowski Jersey Womens , was at the game. … Kucherov has three goals and eight assists over his last three games. … Agostino halted a 17-game goal drought. … Tampa Bay D Mikhail Sergachev played after he was hit on the left knee by a shot Thursday. … Stralman got his first goal in 16 games.UP NEXTCanadiens: Play at Dallas on Monday night. Price will also sit out that game.Lightning: Start a three-game trip Monday night at Anaheim. ST. LOUIS (AP) — Robert Bortuzzo got mad for the St. Louis Blues, and teammate Oskar Sundqvist got even with the Washington Capitals.Alex Ovechkin scored his 30th goal of the season but the Blues came back to beat the Capitals 5-2 on Thursday night after Sundqvist knocked in the go-ahead goal.Ovechkin’s first-period score snapped a six-game drought and tied him with Mike Gartner as the only players in NHL history to begin their careers with 14 straight 30-goal seasons. Gartner scored 30 or more in his first 15 seasons for Washington, the Minnesota North Stars, the New York Rangers and Toronto from 1979-94.“He’s just an elite, elite scorer that we’re so fortunate to have on our team and, jeez, the league is even fortunate just to have this type of a player that’s a generational talent,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden said. “To score 30 again this year is quite an accomplishment after going through a long season last year, and he continues to get a year older but he still does the phenomenal things.”Ovechkin wasn’t in a reflective mood following the loss.“It’s nice to be in that company (with Gartner) but still a long way to go (in my career),” he said.Sundqvist’s goal stood as the game-winner. Sundqvist missed the first eight games of the season with head and shoulder issues after a hit from Washington’s Tom Wilson in a preseason game on Sept. 30.Wilson ended up being suspended 14 games. Bortuzzo and Wilson got into a fight early in the second period.“I don’t know whether he expected it or not,” Bortuzzo said. “I think he would have done the same thing on his side and I’m sure a lot of guys would have stepped up in this locker room. I just happened to be the guy and it is what it is.”Alex Pietrangelo had a goal and an assist for the Blues, who stopped a two-game skid. Colton Parayko Matt Read Jersey Womens , Robert Thomas and Tyler Bozak also scored, and Jake Allen made 23 saves.Brett Connolly scored for the Capitals, who had won five road games in a row. Braden Holtby had 37 saves but lost to St. Louis for the first time in his career (7-1-0).Parayko’s power-play goal tied it at 2 with 7:37 left in the second period. That ended an 0-for-21 slump with the man advantage on home ice for the Blues spanning seven games.“We just outworked them, especially in the offensive zone,” Pietrangelo said. “The penalty kill was good. The power play was good in the second period there. I think we simplified and started getting shots and all of sudden momentum started to change.”Sundqvist gave St. Louis a 3-2 lead with a diving sweep of a rebound off Pietrangelo’s shot from the point with 3:27 remaining in the second.“He got the shot through and I saw the puck and the diving during the shot was more to be sure I would be first to the puck,” Sundqvist said.Pietrangelo and Bozak added insurance goals in the third.Thomas deflected Bortuzzo’s slap shot past Holtby at the four-minute mark of the first to give the Blues a 1-0 lead.After Ovechkin tied it, Connolly gave the Capitals a 2-1 advantage three minutes into the second, poking a rebound of his own shot past Allen.NOTES: Blues RW Vladimir Tarasenko (illness) did not play. … Capitals C Evgeny Kuznetsov is one point shy of 300 for his career. … The Blues acquired G Jared Coreau from the Anaheim Ducks for future considerations. Coreau was assigned to San Antonio of the American Hockey League. … Capitals RW Dmitrij Jaskin played for the Blues from 2012-18.UP NEXTCapitals: At the Dallas Stars on Friday.Blues: Host the New York Islanders on Saturday.
