Ondrej Palat broke out of a seven-game scoring drought with three points in three games last week to earn Player of the Week honors.
After being held off the scoresheet in Tuesday's overtime win over Ottawa, Palat collected a goal and an assist on Thursday against Dallas. He picked up the secondary helper on Mikhail Sergachev's power play goal in the first period. In the second period, Palat had good positioning in front of the net to score on a deflection to give Tampa Bay the lead.

Palat then picked up the primary assist on the Lightning's lone goal in the 3-1 loss to Washington on Saturday. Palat was able to squeeze a feed through traffic to Nikita Kucherov who scored to tie the game at one.
Palat's 10 goals so far this season have him tied for fourth most on the team.
