The Lightning, paced by Stamkos' two goals, pulled away from Dallas in the second and third periods, scoring five unanswered goals in a 6-1 demolition of the Stars.

Underrated Lightning penalty kill quietly one of NHL's best

The unit will be tested on Thursday against Dallas' League-best power play

by Bryan Burns / TampaBayLightning.com

There's plenty to like about the start the Tampa Bay Lightning have had to the 2017-18 season.
