With an assist on Ryan Malone’s goal in the first period, Martin St. Louis reached 900 career points in a Tampa Bay Lightning uniform.
“It was fast. I told Bugsy [Malone] on the bench “Whoa. This team is fast.” So I couldn’t wait until the TV timeouts,” said St. Louis.
St. Louis extended his point streak to five games in tonight’s game. He has 10 points over that span (four goals, six assists). He currently ranks second in the NHL in points this season. He finished the game with two goals and an assist and was named the game’s first star.
“We gave up at least one point last game and in this league; you get a home start you can’t lose two in a row. We got some good teams coming in and I thought we answered pretty well from the get go,” St. Louis said.
