The Lightning rebounded from a late loss in their previous game and jumped out to a quick start on Tuesday dropping the Los Angeles Kings 5-1 in front of an announced crowd of 16310 at The Forum. Marty St. Louis had two goals and an assist Ryan Malone had a goal and two points while Steven Stamkos had a pair of assists. Sami Salo Ondrej Palat and Teddy Purcell also scored while Ben Bishop who missed the last game with a lower body injury stopped 30 shots for his fourth consecutive victory. Slava Voynov had the only Los Angeles goal while Jonathan Quick stopped 14 shots before being replaced after giving up three goals. Before many fans were able to find their seats the Lightning jumped out to the lead and it started with Malone intercepting a Drew Doughty pass attempt in the slot area which allowed Tampa Bay to keep the puck in the Los Angeles zone. St. Louis eventually got the puck back to Sami Salo at the right point for a quick one-time wrist shot that that was deflected fittingly by Malone for his first goal of the season just 19 seconds into the game. Tampa Bay had to kill off a penalty a minute later followed shortly by missed breakaway attempts by Steven Stamkos and St. Louis to keep it a one-goal game. Later in the period Purcell took a pass from Ondrej Palat and raced through center ice along the left board sides. Purcell was able to get position on Slava Voynov and get a wrist shot off that beat Quick to the top far post for a 2-0 lead at 12:44 for his fourth goal. Los Angeles appeared to cut the lead in half in the opening minute of the second period but Jeff Carter’s goal was waived off due to contact by Mike Richards with Bishop in the crease at 32 seconds. The Lightning penalty killers which came under fire for allowing three goals on Saturday were then called on to kill off four minutes when Salo was whistled for a double minor for high sticking at 3:08. The Kings came up empty on the extended man advantage opportunity getting four shots on goal with Hedman coming up with the biggest save stopping a Justin Williams rebound chance with Bishop still on the other side of the crease. The Lightning struck again to make it a 3-0 lead when on a delayed penalty call against Daniel Carcillo Tampa Bay scored with the extra attacker as St. Louis charged in to swat a rebound of a Steven Stamkos shot at 16:22. The goal ended the night for Quick who allowed three goals on 17 shots before giving way to Ben Scrivens.
