Stamkos lifts Lightning over Canadiens

Steven Stamkos had two goals and two assists to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens in the NHL on Thursday.
Martin St. Louis and Pavel Kubina scored the opening two goals for Tampa Bay, 7-1-1 in its past nine games.
Stamkos made it 3-1 at 1:46 of the third when he beat goalie Carey Price with a backhander after a spin move in the slot during a penalty shot. The center extended Tampa Bay's advantage to 4-1 on a wraparound goal, his 31st of the season, with 15:20 left.
Lightning rookie goalie Cedrick Desjardins won in his NHL debut, making 27 saves.
Max Pacioretty scored for the Canadiens.
Thrashers 3, Bruins 2, SO
In Atlanta, Tim Stapleton and Bryan Little scored in the first two rounds of a shootout to lift Atlanta over Boston.
Toby Enstrom had two power-play goals for the Thrashers, who snapped a four-game losing streak and ended the Bruins' winning streak at three.
