TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Steven Stamkos and Ondrej Palat both had a goal and an assist to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning past the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 on Monday night.

Valtteri Filppula and Tom Pyatt also scored for the Lightning, who moved into a second-place tie with Montreal — with one game at hand — in the Atlantic Division after completing a 3-1-2 homestand. Ben Bishop extended his single-season team record with his 32nd win.

Vancouver, which started play 10th in the Western Conference, is 3-6-1 in its last 10 games. Alexandre Burrows scored two goals, and Jannik Hansen added a short-handed tally for the Canucks.

After Pyatt scored midway through the third period, the Canucks got within one on goals by Burrows at 11:44 and Hansen at 15:16.
