The Lightning's win over the Penguins on Thursday was one of extended streaks.
Andrei Vasilevskiy extended his personal point streak to 17 games setting a new franchise record, while Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos each extended their own personal point streaks to nine games.
Most importantly, however, the Lightning's 4-2 victory over the Penguins pushed their winning streak to five games.
The Bolts got off to a fast start with a pair of first period goals to build a 2-0 lead through 20 minutes.
Mikhail Sergachev opened the scoring midway through the period with a shot from the right point that deflected off a Pittsburgh defender and past Matt Murray. Four minutes later, Steven Stamkos doubled Tampa Bay's advantage, finishing a beautiful give-and-go passing sequence with Brayden Point.
In the second, Evegni Malkin scored at 9:25 to get Pittsburgh on the board but the Lightning had a quick response. Just 32 seconds later, Anthony Cirelli rang a shot off the left post and in to put Tampa Bay back up by two.

Things got tight for the Bolts in the third after John Marino scored three minutes in to get Pittsburgh back within a goal.
The Bolts then had to kill off an extended five-on-three situation after Sergachev and Alex Killorn were sent to the box in rapid succession. Thanks to Vasilevskiy and a few key clearing attempts, the Lightning managed to maintain their lead despite being down two men for 1:34.
Kucherov then put the game away with an empty net goal in the closing seconds to put the Bolts up 4-2.
Vasilevskiy was stellar in goal once again, finishing the night with 29 saves. His best work came with the Lightning shorthanded, making eight saves and helping the Bolts go a perfect five-for-five on the PK.
The Lightning will wrap up the homestand on Saturday night against Islanders.
