MONTREAL - The points keep piling up for the Tampa Bay Lightnings surprising line of Tyler Johnson, Nikita Kucherov and Ondrej Palat. Denarius Moore Raiders Jersey .Johnson scored twice in a four-goal second period and his linemates each got two assists as the Lightning ended the Montreal Canadiens six-game winning streak with a 4-2 victory on Tuesday night.The five-foot-nine Johnson, who was never drafted because he was thought to be too small, moved into third place in NHL scoring with 45 points in 41 games.The unit has been especially hot of late. In their last seven games, including six victories, Palat has 13 points while Kucherov and Johnson have 11 each.Theres just good chemistry there, said Johnson. Things are clicking.We know where each other is. Things are just working for us now, which is awesome. The good thing is we know we can be better.The win put Tampa Bay (26-12-4) into top spot in both the Eastern Conference and Atlantic Division, two points ahead of Montreal (26-12-2), which has two games in hand.Brett Connolly and J.T. Brown also scored for Tampa Bay, while Dale Weise and Max Pacioretty replied for the Canadiens.There were not high expectations on any of the Johnson line before they reached the NHL. All three were acquired in 2011, with Kucherov drafted 58th overall and Palat 208th.But they have found a recipe for success together, although they admit it helps that Tampa Bays top line led by two-time 50-goal scorer Steven Stamkos usually plays against opponents top checking units and defence pairings.Hes the guy you have to worry about, said Johnson. He takes a lot of attention off us. That makes it a little easier.Stamkos, the Lightning captain, marvels at the lines production.(Johnson) is a pretty smart player, and the guy who flies under the radar a bit is Kuch, said Stamkos. He makes some unbelievable plays.Palat is the guy who can put points on the board, but he also grinds it out, goes in front of the net. They know where each other is on the ice. Its nice to watch.The Canadiens played their first home game since Dec. 20 after winning five straight on the road, but did not play a smart game. The result was they were outshot 36-22 and saw their string of 16 wins when scoring first in a game come to an end.We forgot the reasons we were having success, said Montreal coach Michel Therrien. We didnt deserve to win.We have to put this behind us and get our focus, our work ethic and our discipline back for our next game (Saturday night at home against Pittsburgh).The Canadiens thought they had a goal only two minutes in, but Andrei Markovs shot hit the inside of both goalposts and stayed out. Then the Bolts Valtteri Filppula was stopped on a short-handed breakaway by Carey Price.Montreal didnt get its first shot until 13 minutes in, but soon after, they opened the scoring when Weise was at the far post to redirect Tomas Plekanecs shot past Ben Bishop at 15:07.The Lightning tied it 3:17 into the second when rookie Jonathan Drouin hit a goalpost, but then got the puck to the net on another chance a moment later and Brown banged in the rebound. A slashing call Therrien tagged as undisciplined on P.K. Subban led to Johnsons goal at 10:42 on a feed from Kucherov, and a Tom Gilbert giveaway during a line change saw Connolly score on a 4-on-2 rush at 18:16.Palat poked the puck in through a scramble in Prices crease on a power play at 19:38.Pacioretty got one back 5:01 into the third as he went in alone and scored off Bishops glove. A rivalry has been building between the teams, which started when Montreal swept the Lightning in the opening round of playoffs last spring. In their first meeting of the 2014-15 campaign on Oct. 13, the Bolts won 7-1.Tampa Bay has taken the edge in the standings, although they are only halfway through the season.Theres still a lot we have to work on, said Johnson. The playoffs are a completely different story. Once we get there, points dont matter any more. Its how youre playing the game.Notes — The Lightning announced Tuesday that defenceman Radko Gudas will be out four months with a right knee injury. . . Filppula played his 600th NHL game.

NEW YORK -- It looked like Ohio States winning streak to start the season was over. The third-ranked Buckeyes were down eight points to Notre Dame with less than 2 minutes to play and their offence was nowhere to be found. They still had their tough defence and somehow they were able to turn the game completely around and beat the Fighting Irish 64-61 on Saturday night in the BlackRock Gotham Classic at Madison Square Garden. "I dont really know what happened. It was a big blur," Ohio State senior guard Aaron Craft said. "We never stopped. We never gave up. Guys were running around getting tips and guys made big free throws." While a few players did come up with big defensive plays, it was mostly one guy who made the free throws for the Buckeyes (12-0). Lenzelle Smith Jr. scored seven of his nine points in the final 33 seconds -- including going 5 of 5 at the line -- to lead the rally. "Im still trying to figure out what happened," Ohio State coach Thad Matta said. "My mind was fixated on if we wanted to foul with the time situation or do we play it out defensively and all of a sudden it was closer and closer and closer and we get the lead. It happened quick, It was a great win." The Buckeyes went 9:10 without a field goal and at one point were 6 of 21 from the field as Notre Dame (8-4) opened what seemed to be a comfortable lead late. Jerian Grant hit a 3-pointer as the shot clock was expiring to give the Fighting Irish a 58-50 advantage with 1:54 to play. "I am so thoroughly disappointed," Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said. "We had such a good chance at such a great win." The Buckeyes turned up the defensive intensity and they converted consecutive steals into a 58-56 deficit with 40 seconds to go. Demetrius Jackson made two free throws for Notre Dame a second later. Smith was fouled taking a 3-pointer and he made all three free throws to bring Ohio State within 60-59 with 32 seconds left.. Marquette King Raiders Jersey. . Steve Vasturia, who was in the game because point guard Eric Atkins had fouled out, missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with 31 seconds left, his first free throw attempt of the season. Smith scored down low on a nice pass by Craft to give the Buckeyes a 61-60 lead with 16 seconds to go. After a Notre Dame turnover, Smith made two free throws for a 63-60 lead with 9.8 seconds left. Grant made one free throw with 6.7 seconds left and Craft made one free throw with 3.3 seconds left. Jackson missed a potential tying 3 as the buzzer sounded. "They really turned the heat up on us and flustered us. We had a hard time doing anything right," Brey said. "We didnt have Atkins but the other guys should have handled it better." LaQuinton Ross had 16 points and 11 rebounds for Ohio State while Amir Williams had 13 points and Shannon Scott and Craft both added 10. Grant had 18 points for Notre Dame, which committed five of its 13 turnovers in the final 2 minutes, while Garrick Sherman had 14 and Pat Connaughton 13. "Im a senior and I have to find a way to not turn the ball over when we didnt have our point guard in there," Grant said. The Buckeyes shot 34.5 per cent in the second half (10 of 29, including missing all nine 3-point attempts). They went 9:10 without a field goal in the second half, and thats when Notre Dame opened a 52-44 lead with 5:33 to play. Williams dunked on the next possession to end Ohio States long drought. "They packed that zone in and I dont think we were trusting the system as much as we needed to," Craft said. "We took some bad shots and didnt attack. We were letting the missing offensively affect us defensively and let that get tied together and thats not what good teams do." Notre Dame opened the second half on a 9-2 run that tied the game at 35. The run was started by a 3-pointer by Atkins, the Fighting Irishs first in seven attempts from beyond the arc.
