Stamkos, Kucherov lead Lightning past Penguins, 7-1

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov are making it look easy and the Tampa Bay Lightning are reaping the benefits.

The Tampa Bay stars both extended their season-opening points streaks to nine games and the Lightning routed the two-time Stanley Cup Pittsburgh Penguins 7-1 on Saturday night.

"Just proud of the way we played throughout the whole game," Stamkos said. "Sometimes those are tough games to play but we played the right way."
