Gourde keys Lightning surge in 6-2 win over Islanders

Gourde scored two of Tampa Bay's three goals late in the second period and the Lightning beat the New York Islanders 6-2 on Tuesday night.

Going into Tampa Bay tonight, the New York Islanders have to change one thing.

"They came out really strong and I think we came out flat", Gourde said. "You can always go back to the Stammer-Kuch-Vladdy line, but right now, I think it's good we switch lines, and we got a little life", Palat told reporters after notching two assists on Saturday. Barzal's power play tally cut the Lightning's lead to 2-1 at the time.

Barzal, who leads all National Hockey League first-year players with 26 points and is being heralded as a strong candidate for Calder Trophy honors, picked up an assist on Eberle's 11th goal of the season just under two minutes later to even the contest. Eberle tied it 2-all just 1:51 later.

Kunitz had a third-period goal.

The Isles, who beat the Lightning in Tampa, 5-3, back on November 18, failed to capitalize on their chances down the stretch despite outshooting the Lightning 29-23 over the final 40 minutes of regulation.

"We weren't very good for a majority of the game", said star center John Tavares, who had an assist.

The Islanders went 11 minutes without a shot to start the first and were outshot 11-2 overall in the period.

For Colorado, this will be the first of a hard four-game trip to the east coast. He's up to seven goals and 26 points in 27 games this season.

The Lightning hope to improve on their solid start to the homestand when they welcome the Colorado Avalanche to AMALIE Arena.
