The Bolts veteran winger comes into this week riding a season-high nine-game point streak with six goals and 16 points in that span. St. Louis notched his fifth career hat trick, and first since October 2006, to help lead the Lightning to a 6-3 win over Florida this past Saturday.
2. STEVEN STAMKOS During his current three-game point streak, Stamkos has two goals and five points, with both of those goals coming as game-winners. He’s recorded a plus-3 rating in that span.
3. VINCENT LECAVALIER The Bolts captain recorded a season-high four-points (1G, 3A) during Saturday's 6-3 win over the Panthers. He heads into this week with points in all but two of his past nine games.
4. VICTOR HEDMAN The Lightning blue-liner has points in each of his past two games (1G, 1A), and has been a stalwart on defense since returning on Jan. 31. after missing 13 consecutive games due to a concussion.
5. NATE THOMPSON Thompson has points in all but one of his past four contests. After a small hiccup against Winnipeg last Thursday, Thompson returned to form by scoring a goal, giving him three in four games since just before the All-Star Break.
