Lecavalier lifts Lightning over Kings

Feb 7, 2007 - 3:23 AM
TAMPA, Florida (Ticker) -- Vincent Lacavalier is still hot.

Lecavalier scored in regulation and also tallied in the shootout to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings.

The center started the shootout by beating goaltender Sean Burke between the pads before Brad Richards and Martin St. Louis also scored to give the Lightning their ninth win in 11 games.

Lecavalier gave Tampa Bay a 1-0 lead at 2:23 of the first period with his league-leading 34th goal. He beat Burke with a slap shot from the right faceoff circle.

He has goals in four straight games and 13 goals and eight assists in his last 14 contests.

Defenseman Mike Weaver scored his first two career goals for Los Angeles. His first sliced Tampa Bay's lead to 2-1 at 1:13 of the third period on a slap shot from the right circle. He later tied the game at 7:41 when his slap shot from the point sailed past goaltender Johan Holmqvist.

Blair Jones scored his first career goal and Holmqvist made 29 saves for Tampa Bay. Burke recorded 27 saves.
