Flames to face Avalanche with NHL playoff matchups set

The Lightning matched an National Hockey League record with their 62nd win, using a three-goal second period Saturday to beat the Boston Bruins, 6-3.

Tampa Bay now has 62 wins to tie the 1995-96 Red Wings team and leaving many wondering if this is the best regular-season team in the league's history.

The Lightning's playoff spot has been locked up for a month, it's top seed for two weeks.

Kucherov will nearly certainly win the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL's leading scorer with 128 points (41 goals, 87 assists) barring a record setting night Edmonton's Connor McDavid, who trails by 12 points.

Kucherov finished with 41 goals and 87 assists, putting him in position to win the Art Ross Trophy awarded to the NHL's leading scorer. "That's a result of us playing the right way and winning games". "Thanks to all the guys in the room for helping me out, I wouldn't be where I am now". Stamkos scored a shorthanded goal and Russian Nikita Kucherov notched an empty netter for the Lightning in front of a crowd of 17,600 at the Boston Garden arena. "It's a team effort". The 2005-06 Red Wings had 31.

Nashville finished off a tight three-team race for the division crown with a 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Predators (47-29-6) will play the Dallas Stars in the Western Conference first round.

Tampa built on the momentum of that Stamkos goal with a go-ahead goal from Anthony Cirelli scored just 4:07 later to leave the B's stunned and give the Bolts a 3-2 edge through 40 minutes of action.

Blues' goaltender Jake Allen turned aside 26 shots in claiming his first shutout of the season and Colton Parayko notched a power play goal in the second period to claim the win.

And the Lightning needed just 53 seconds to continue their offensive assault on the B's, as Nikita Kucherov nearly effortlessly split Zdeno Chara and Charlie McAvoy before he tucked a lovely backhand look through Tuukka Rask. It was his 34th goal of the season which established a franchise record for the Predators.

The NHL will unveil the first-round playoff schedule on Sunday morning. Cirelli's goal 4:07 later moved the Lightning ahead 3-2.

McDavid was driving hard to the net with the puck when he was chopped down by Mark Giordano.

The Oilers said initial X-rays were negative but McDavid would be evaluated by team doctors on Sunday.
