The Tampa Bay Lightning have won their fourth consecutive game against the Washington Capitals in an Eastern Conference Final rematch and established a franchise record for most wins in a single season. Ten games still remain to extend that record.
The @TBLightning collected their 55th win and 114th point to establish single-season franchise marks, after also doing so in 2017-18 (54-23-5, 113 points). #NHLStats #WSHvsTBL pic.twitter.com/MC9nnCXLNS— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) March 17, 2019
They’ve also became just the 12th team in NHL history with 55+ wins in a season. But despite scoring six goals, it wasn’t an easy win for the Bolts
Don’t take too much into this win (even though it secured the most wins the franchise has ever had). The biggest thing the Lightning need to do moving forward is to try and remain healthy (yes, I know Girardi and Stralman are still out currently) and clean up some of the defensive zone play. Soak the moment and then move on. [Raw Charge]
Alex Killorn registered his first career hat trick, embarassed Nick Jensen when scoring his second goal, and overshadowed another hockey player named Alex who played in the same game.
The @TBLightning can lock up the No. 1 seed in their division/conference, while the @NHLFlames and @SanJoseSharks aim to clinch spots in the 2019 #StanleyCup Playoffs. #NHLStats pic.twitter.com/mo2kTtbrGc— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) March 16, 2019
