Evander Kane scored the eventual game victor while both Benoit Pouiliot and Jake McGabe added a goal and assist eeah.

Thursday night National Hockey League action comes to Amalie Arena where the Tampa Bay Lightning host the Colorado Avalanche.

Some reshuffled forward lines and the comfort of home added a spark for the Tampa Bay Lightning last time out, and they hope to build off that when hosting the New York Islanders on Tuesday. The Islanders scored both their goals in the second period (less than two minutes apart).

"They came out really strong and I think we came out flat", Gourde said.

Going up against the third-best offensive force in the league and top-ranked power play in the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Islanders are going to have to be better. Thomas Greiss stopped 28 shots. It's a tough challenge for an Avalanche team that is 12-12-2 and just dropped three straight at home, falling to 1-4-1 in their last six.

Point opened the scoring 34 seconds into the game from low in the left circle and Sustr made it 2-0 from the blue line late in the first. He's up to seven goals and 26 points in 27 games this season.

"We had the whole ice tilted and had taken the game over", Islanders coach Doug Weight said. "It's disappointing but we have to march on".

Nikita Kucherov moved onto the line with center Brayden Point and Ondrej Palat and tallied twice while Tyler Johnson was switched from third-line center to right wing with captain Steven Stamkos and Vladislav Namestnikov and scored a pair of goals. Anders Lee extended his goal-scoring streak to four games with his fifth tally in that span and captain John Tavares netted his team-leading 17th as NY won for the fifth time in its last six on the road. Robin Lehner recorded 35 stops to help Buffalo put an end to their four game slide. Central and Lightning are 8-1 in their last 9 Thursday games and under is 7-1 in Lightning last 8 vs. a team with a losing record.
