Stamkos scores 300th goal, Lightning top Penguins 4-2

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Tampa Bay forward Steven Stamkos became the third player in franchise history to reach 300 goals, and the Lightning ended a long losing streak in Pittsburgh with a 4-2 win over the Penguins on Saturday.

Stamkos knocked in a rebound off Alex Killorn’s shot midway through the first period to join Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis as the only Lightning players with 300 goals.

Anton Stralman, Matthew Carle and Tyler Johnson also scored for Tampa Bay. Ben Bishop finished with 37 saves.

Tom Kuhnhackl picked up the first NHL goal of his career for Pittsburgh. Scott Wilson added his second in as many games but the Penguins fell to the Lightning at home in the regular season for the first time since Nov. 12, 2010.

Jeff Zatkoff stopped 16 of 20 shots while making an impromptu start when Marc-Andre Fleury became ill during the pregame.
