Highlighted by his first career hat trick, Anthony Cirelli paced the Lightning to a pair of victories last week. 

Cirelli had two assists in Tampa Bay's 4-3 shootout victory over the Kings at Amalie Arena on Tuesday night. He picked up the primary on Steven Stamkos' first period goal and then won a key faceoff straight back to Nikita Kucherov who wired home the game-tying goal late in the third period.

After adding another assist in the Bolts' loss in Minnesota on Thursday, Cirelli exploded for three goals in a rout of the Jets leading into the bye week. Cirelli scored twice in the first as the Lightning raced out to a big lead and then finished off the hat trick with a lucky deflection early in the third. 

Cirelli's big week broke him out of six game scoring drought. He now sits sixth on the team with 33 points.
