The Tampa Bay Lightning are winners of 10 in a row for the second time this season after a 5-3 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers at Amalie Arena on Saturday.

The Lightning (39-15-5) equaled their record for longest winning streak, set from Feb. 9-27, 2019 and Dec. 23, 2019 to Jan. 11, 2020, and remain one point behind the Boston Bruins (36-11-2) in the race for the Presidents' Trophy given to the team with the best record in the regular season. They are the second different team in NHL history with multiple double-digit winning streaks within one season, joining Boston in 1929-30 (14-0-0 from Dec. 3, 1929 to Jan. 9, 1930 and 11-0-0 from Feb. 4 to March 11, 1930) and again in 1970-71 (10-0-0 from Dec. 5-25, 1970 and 13-0-0 from Feb. 23 to March 20, 1971).

Tampa Bay has won a team record 11 straight games at Amalie Arena, the longest home winning streak in the NHL this season, ahead of the nine consecutive home wins by the St. Louis Blues from Dec. 12, 2019 to Jan. 13, 2020 and Vancouver Canucks from Dec. 19, 2019 to Jan. 27, 2020. The Lightning are also 12-0-1 in their past 13 games on home ice, tying their record set from Jan. 3 to March 12, 2004 (11-0-2), the season they won the Stanley Cup.

 

Pastrnak, Rask help keep Bruins on top

David Pastrnak scored his 42nd goal of the season and Tuukka Rask made 25 saves for the Bruins in a 4-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings at TD Garden.

The Bruins have won seven straight games at home and maintained their lead over the Lightning for first in the NHL. Pastrnak is tied with Toronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews for the NHL goal-scoring lead.

Rask is 14-0-6 with a 1.97 goals-against average, .933 save percentage and three shutouts in games played in Boston this season. He's the sixth NHL goalie with a home point streak of at least 20 games in a regular season and third to do so since the start of a season.

Toffoli powers Kings in Stadium Series

Tyler Toffoli scored all three goals for the Los Angeles Kings, and the game-winner with 55 seconds left in the third period, in a 3-1 victory against the Colorado Avalanche in the 2020 Navy Federal Credit Union NHL Stadium Series at Falcon Stadium on the campus of the United States Air Force Academy.

The forward became the first to score three goals in an outdoor game and took over the Kings goal-scoring lead with 18, one ahead of Anze Kopitar and Jeff Carter. Toffoli is two goals from his fourth 20-goal season in the NHL and his 34 points tie his total from last season.

Jonathan Quick made 32 saves, including 15 in the first period, to win his second outdoor game (2-1-0). He is the fifth NHL goalie with multiple regular-season wins in games played outdoors, joining Henrik Lundqvist (4-0-0), Braden Holtby (2-0-0), Craig Anderson (2-0-0) and Ty Conklin (2-1-0).

 

Fleury gets 60th NHL shutout in win for Golden Knights

Marc-Andre Fleury made 19 saves for the Vegas Golden Knights to earn his 60th regular-season shutout in a 1-0 win against the New York Islanders at T-Mobile Arena. He moved past Evgeni Nabokov (59) for sole possession of 18th place in NHL history.

Vegas (30-22-8) is tied with the Edmonton Oilers for second in the Pacific Division, one point behind the Canucks.

 

Campbell off to strong start with Maple Leafs

Jack Campbell made 25 saves for the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 4-2 win against the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre. The goalie is 3-0-1 with a 2.40 GAA and .919 save percentage in his first four games with the Maple Leafs after he was acquired in a trade with the Kings on Feb. 5. He is the 12th Maple Leafs goalie to earn at least one point in each of his first four-plus games with Toronto. Jean-Sebastien Aubin owns the longest run of 12 games from March 26 to Oct. 12, 2006 (9-0-3).
