Victor Hedman was one of four Lighnting players to record points in both of the team's games last week. 

In Wednesday's win over Pittsburgh, Hedman scored a goal with less than a minute remaining in regulation to break a tie game and give the Bolts a 3-2 victory. The goal came on a Lightning power play and capped a third period comeback for the Lightning.

Hedman then picked up the secondary assist on Tyler Johnson's goal in Saturday night's overtime loss to the Predators. Hedman began the play for the Lightning, firing the puck into the slot that eventually came free for Johnson to score a go-ahead goal. 

Through 10 games this season, Hedman leads the Lightning in average in time on ice and his nine points rank third.
