Point has goal, 3 assists as Lightning beat Senators 5-2

TAMPA, Fla. ( Associated Press) — Brayden Point had a goal and three assists, Steven Stamkos extended his goal streak to five games, and the Tampa Bay Lightning rebounded from an early two-goal deficit to beat the Ottawa Senators 5-2 on Tuesday night.

Point has five goals and 11 points during a seven-game point streak and has a goal in three straight games. Stamkos has scored six times and added a pair of assists during his run.

“Definitely didn’t start out great but I guess that’s why you play 60 (minutes),” Point said. “I think our team did a good job to rally back, and get back in it.”

Nikita Kucherov, Corey Perry and Mikhail Sergachev also scored for the Lightning, who moved past Florida into first place in the Atlantic Division. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 25 saves.

Ottawa got first-period goals from Tyler Ennis and Zach Sanford, and Matt Murray stopped 17 shots.

“We came out the way we had to, we just made some bad puck decisions that ended up in the back of our net,” Senators coach DJ Smith said.
