NHL: Tampa Bay 5, Buffalo 2

BUFFALO, N.Y., Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Steven Stamkos produced the first two goals of his NHL career Thursday in leading the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 5-2 win over Buffalo.

Stamkos was the first pick in this year's NHL draft. He earned his first point with an assist Tuesday in a victory over Toronto and picked up another assist Thursday when he posted a three-point night.

Jussi Jokinen scored for the second straight game and Vincent Lecavalier added two assists, boosting the Lightning to their third win in four games. That streak follows a season-opening, five-game losing skid.

Olaf Kolzig got the win, saving 29 of 31 shots.

After going through the first seven games of the season without a loss in regulation, the Sabres have dropped three in a row. Ryan Miller allowed all five goals on 40 shots.

Buffalo had won the previous five meetings with Tampa Bay.
