Reuters

Goaltender Ben Bishop made 33 saves and center Steven Stamkos scored his 30th goal of the season, as the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the San Jose Sharks 5-2.

Stamkos reached the 30-goal mark for the fourth time in his career and the first time since the 2011-2012 season when he scored 60 goals.

The victory launched a five-game road trip for the Lightning, who had lost on their past five visits to San Jose.

CAPITALS 5, DUCKS 3

Left winger Alex Ovechkin scored two goals and added two assists, as the Washington Capitals beat the Anaheim Ducks on the road.

Ovechkin’s second goal was his 36th of the season, the best in the NHL, while left winger Andre Burakovsky also scored twice for Washington (30-17-10).

BLACKHAWKS 2, PENGUINS 1, SO

Right winger Patrick Sharp scored the tiebreaking goal to lift the Chicago Blackhawks to a shootout win against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Center Jonathan Toews and right winger Patrick Kane also scored during the shootout for the Blackhawks, who completed a regular-season sweep against Pittsburgh.

BLUES 2, PANTHERS 1, SO

The St Louis Blues won for the 15th time in 18 games when they edged the Florida Panthers in a shootout.

Center Jori Lehtera scored the game-winning shootout goal after the Panthers had tied it with a goal by center Nick Bjugstad with 1 minute, 13 seconds left in regular time that deprived St Louis goalie Brian Elliott of what would have been a franchise-record-tying 20th shutout.

FLYERS 2, SABRES 1

Left winger Michael Raffl scored with 7 minutes, 15 seconds remaining to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Right winger Matt Read also scored for the Flyers (24-22-10), who extended their point streak to nine consecutive games.
