Alex Killorn continues to be an offensive threat for the Lightning this season.

In four games last week, Killorn led the team with three goals as the Bolts extended their winning streak to seven.

Killorn played a big role in Tampa Bay's come-from-behind victory over Buffalo on New Year's Eve. Trailing the Sabres 4-1, Killorn got the Botls within two on a power play goal in the second period and scored the game-winner midway through the third to complete the comeback. He also picked up the primary assist on Anthony Cirelli's empty net goal late in the game.

On Saturday night in Ottawa, Killorn scored an empty net goal with less than a minute remaining to secure the win. Killorn stepped up at the redline to foce a turnover and fired the puck into the net to give the Bolts a 5-3 lead.

At the midway point of the season, Killorn is tied for second on the team with 16 goals. He also leads the Lightning with three game-winning goals.
