Bolts Crush Sharks

Andrei Vasilevskiy made 37 saves, Steven Stamkos had two power-play goals and an assist, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the San Jose Sharks 7-1 on Saturday night.

Tampa Bay also got two goals from Tyler Johnson. Alex Killorn, Victor Hedman and Carter Verhaeghe had the other goals, and Killorn added three assists.

Vasilevskiy made a hell of a pad save on Kevin Labanc, who skated down the slot and took a pass from Joe Thornton 6 minutes into the second.

After tying Stan Mikita, Joe Mullen and Darryl Sittler for 49th place on the NHL power-play list on his first goal with 27 seconds to go in the second.

Stamkos then tied Glenn Anderson for 48th with his 151st career man-advantage goal in the third.

The Lightning converted two of four chances with the advantages.

This win over the San Jose snaps a three game losing skid and showed us the Bolts we’re used to seeing, hoping this play sticks instead of what we’ve seen recently with these losing streaks stacking up on each other.

Lightning take on the N.Y. Islanders next.
