Stralman's two goals help Lightning top Avalanche

(TSX / STATS) -- DENVER -- Thanks to a sloppy third period, the Tampa Bay Lightning watched their big lead shrivel into a nail-biting finish on Saturday night.

The NHL's best team will savor this victory -- one that nearly got away.

Anton Stralman scored twice, Yanni Gourde had a goal and two assists, and the Lightning frantically held on to beat the Colorado Avalanche 6-5 for their seventh straight win.
