Lightning tries to handle Penguins' offensive power

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Lightning and Pittsburgh Penguins meet Saturday night in Tampa, coming off opposite ends of 5-1 scores on Thursday, with the host Lightning scrambling to get back on track and the Penguins scoring at prolific levels.

"It's fun, but we have more confidence, and all four lines are playing amazing," Penguins center Evgeni Malkin said after a 5-1 win at the Florida Panthers on Thursday. "Everyone has helped our team win."

The Penguins (17-7-3) have scored 24 goals in the last four games -- all wins -- raising their scoring average to 3.4 goals per game, second-best in the NHL. The Lightning (14-12-2) are 1-5-1 in their last seven, including a 5-1 home loss to the Canucks on Thursday, putting them at the other end of the spectrum.
