Tampa Bay won all three games during its just-completed home stand following a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues at AMALIE Arena on Saturday.
The Lightning opened up a 2-0 lead behind goals from Tyler Johnson and Nikita Kucherov and leaned on Andrei Vasilevskiy to shut down the Blues and preserve the win.
The Bolts improved to 4-1-0 on the season and, as of Saturday night, are tied with Toronto and Detroit for first place in the Atlantic Division.
The Lightning now hit the road for their first extended stretch away from AMALIE Arena with games in Detroit, New Jersey and Columbus.
But before the Bolts take off for the Motor City, let's rewind Saturday's action against St. Louis and dissect how the Lightning were able to reel off their third-consecutive win in Three Things from a home stand sweep.
