In three games last week, Brayden Point was the Lightning's most balanced offensive player. 

Point scored twice and added three assists to lead the Bolts to three-straight victories over the Golden Knights, Penguins and Islanders. 

He opened the scoring in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Vegas with a goal halfway through the first period, taking a feed from Nikita Kucherov and wiring the shot past Marc Andre Fleury. Point also picked up the primary assist on the game-winning goal, firing a shot that Steven Stamkos deflected into the net.

On Thursday against Pittsburgh, Point once again picked up the primary assist on a goal from Stamkos. The two executed a beautiful give-and-go passing sequence that ended with Point feeding Stamkos for a one-timer from in close. 

Point scored with a slapshot on a breakaway 14 seconds into the second period in a 3-1 victory over the Islanders on Saturday. He followed that up with a nice play that allowed Stamkos to score an empty net goal. Instead of going for the net, Point banked a pass off the boards to Stamkos for a key insurance goal late in the third. 

After picking up an assist in Monday's game agains the Blue Jackets, Point's point streak now sits at seven games.
