NEWARK, N.J. -- Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos is feeling as confident as he has all season.

He extended his goal streak to five games Friday to help the Lightning win their fifth straight, a 4-0 victory against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center.

"When you feel good with the puck, you're legs are moving, and you're willing to make some plays that you might not try when things aren't going well," Stamkos said. "I've gotten more goals in front of the net (lately). I've tried to make a conscious effort of going there. I always try to be a threat no matter where I am on the ice and I've definitely been getting rewarded."
