TAMPA -- Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos tied a franchise record with his eighth career hat trick in a 7-1 win against the Montreal Canadiens at Amalie Arena on Monday.

The goals were Stamkos' first three of the season. He now shares the record with Martin St. Louis, who played 13 seasons for the Lightning.

"It's nothing you really think about before a game," Stamkos said. "You just want to make the right plays and get quality shots. The shots went in tonight and things got rolling pretty quickly. From a confidence standpoint it's good to see the hard work pay off with a team victory. That is the most important part."

BOSTON -- Although forward Jarome Iginla and the Colorado Avalanche left TD Garden on Monday with two points in the standings, the veteran right wing found out that he's not much of a villain in the eyes of Boston Bruins fans.

Former Bruins Phil Kessel, Tim Thomas and Tyler Seguin have returned to the Garden in recent years and heard jeers from the crowd. Iginla, who left the Bruins as an unrestricted free agent over the summer after one season wearing black and gold, received a light cheer when the starting lineups were announced before the Avalanche's 2-1 victory. He barely heard a peep the rest of the night.

The win and the reception made Iginla's first game against the Bruins since he shared the Boston team lead with 30 goals last season a success.
