TAMPA, Florida (Ticker) - The surging Tampa Bay Lightning try to keep rolling when they host the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday.

Tampa Bay has won three straight games and 10 of 12. Vincent Lacavalier netted the game-winner in Tampa Bay's 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday, continuing his hot streak.

Lecavalier has goals in three straight contests and has 12 goals and eight assists in his last 13 games. The center has 33 goals this season, tying Washington's Alex Ovechkin for the league lead.

Teammate Martin St. Louis is second in goals with 32 and has been as consistent as Lacavalier of late. The right wing has nine goals and 17 assists in his last 18 games.

The Kings try to build off a 7-0 romp over Florida on Saturday. Michael Cammalleri and Alexander Frolov each had two goals and Sean Burke steered aside 40 shots to record his 38th career shutout.

Los Angeles claimed Burke off waivers from Tampa Bay on January 18. The 40-year-old netminder has been reasonably solid with the Kings, going 2-2-1 with a 2.44 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage.
