Steven Stamkos has 2 goals as surging Lightning beat Oilers, 4-2

TAMPA, Fla. - Steven Stamkos had two goals to help the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 on Thursday night for their sixth win in seven games.

Stamkos, who extended his goal-scoring streak to five games, has 13 goals this season. Ben Bishop made saves on first-period breakaway shots by Mark Arcobello and Taylor Hall.

Taylor Fedun and Hall scored for the Oilers, who have lost six of seven. Fedun, playing in his second game, also scored in his NHL debut Tuesday night at Florida.

Hall, the first overall pick in the 2010 draft, returned after missing seven games due to a knee injury. His in-close power-play goal got Edmonton within 3-2 midway through the third.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
