Lightning strikes twice, burns Penguins again

(TSX / STATS) -- TAMPA, Fla. -- The high-octane Tampa Bay Lightning offense steamrolled right over the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins for the second time in 10 days.

Steven Stamkos tied a career high with four points while Nikita Kucherov scored twice and had a season-high three points to lead Tampa Bay to a 7-1 victory on Saturday at Amalie Arena.

Rookie defenseman Mikhail Sergachev had his third consecutive multi-point game with a goal and an assist. Andrei Vasilevskiy finished with 28 saves as his bid for a second consecutive shutout ended with 1:42 left in the game on a Jake Guentzel power-play goal.
