Tampa Bay Lightning – 1st Atlantic Division

The Tampa Bay Lightning are one of the hottest teams in the NHL having won their last six games, including a 5-2 victory over the Calgary Flames, a 7-4 decision against the Columbus Blue Jackets and a 4-3 shootout victory over the Detroit Red Wings in the past week.

Cedric Paquette and Tyler Johnson each had three goals over the week’s three games while Ryan Callahan led the way with a goal and four assists. Lightning captain Steven Stamkos chipped in with two goals and a helper.

The Lightning’s depth has been on display all season long as they battled through a barrage of injuries while maintaining one of the top spots in the Eastern Conference and sit two points ahead of the Montreal Canadiens for first in the Atlantic.
