TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Steven Stamkos scored his 12th and 13th goals of the season Thursday in boosting Tampa Bay to a 4-2 triumph over Edmonton.

The Lighting won their third in a row and have captured six out of seven. Ben Bishop made 38 saves and Stamkos, a two-time NHL goal scoring leader, continued his hot streak.

Both of the Stamkos goals came in the first period to give Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead. Tyler Johnson added a Lightning goal in the second period and Valtteri Flippula scored into an empty net with 1:05 to play.

Devan Dubnyk stopped 22-of-25 shots in the loss.
