TAMPA , Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Lightning earned one trophy on Monday night. Starting next month, they’ll be one of the favorites in the chase for the Stanley Cup.The Lightning clinched the Presidents’ Trophy for the top regular-season mark in the league with a 4-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes.The Lightning, who have 56 wins and 116 points, will try to become the ninth Presidents’ Trophy winner to win the Cup. The Presidents’ Trophy was first awarded by the NHL in 1985-86.“Trophies are hard to win, they truly are,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. “And when you win one you should be damn proud of it. I know there are a lot of teams that have not won that trophy and I think it’s something you should embrace.”Lightning captain Steven Stamkos scored his 36th goal of the season and 384th of his career to become the Lightning franchise leader in goals, passing former Tampa Bay captain Vinny Lecavalier.“I’m very honored and humbled to be a part of history like that,” said Stamkos, who reached the record in 737 games. “Definitely happy it happened in a win and in a game like that where so many special things that happened.”Victor Hedman scored his 10th goal of the season while Anthony Cirelli and Yanni Gourde added empty-net short-handed goals in the final minute.Andrei Vasilevskiy finished with 28 saves for his 36th victory of the season, tied for the league lead.Clayton Keller scored his 14th of the season and Darcy Kuemper stopped 20 shots for Arizona, which remains one point ahead of Minnesota for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.“You’re playing a number one and I thought we handled ourselves really well,” Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said. “Guys played hard. They stuck to the system, inch here and there Patrik Laine Jersey , couple of missed nets here and there and (the Lightning) get one to start the period. You’re hoping it was one of those games that’s an overtime game. I thought it was.”Keller opened the scoring 5:03 into the game, taking a drop pass from Christian Dvorak for a one-timer past Vasilevskiy. Stamkos tied the score 1:51 later, tipping Ryan McDonagh’s shot.Hedman put Tampa Bay in front for good 44 seconds into the third period while Cirelli notched his fifth short-handed goal of the season, tied for the league lead, with a shot from his own end with 44.8 seconds left. Gourde finished it off with 8.6 seconds left.“It’s probably one of the best games we have played in the season so it’s kind of sour to walk away with no points to be honest with you,” Arizona captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson said.“I can’t forget that we’re playing against one of the best teams in the league and we matched them really, really good tonight.”NOTES: Lightning D Dan Girardi (lower body) and D Anton Stralman (lower body) each missed their fifth consecutive game. … Tampa Bay recalled D Cameron Gaunce from Syracuse of the American Hockey League. … Arizona RW Clayton Keller has four goals in four games against Tampa Bay. … Vasilevskiy leads the league with 20 victories since Jan. 1, Kuemper is second with 19. … Gourde became the fifth Lightning player to reach the 20-goal mark this season and has reached it in consecutive seasons.UP NEXTLightning: At Washington Capitals on WednesdayCoyotes: At Florida Panthers on Thursday BOSTON (AP) — It certainly appears David Pastrnak has worked the rust off.Pastrnak had three goals and two assists for a career-high five points Wednesday night, sending the Boston Bruins to a 6-3 victory over the New York Rangers.Playing his fifth game since missing 16 following left thumb surgery, the winger raised his goal total to a team-leading 36.“Pretty close,” Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said when asked if Pastrnak is fully recovered. “Obviously, a great night. He was firing the puck well. It looked like he was more comfortable handling it in traffic.”Coming off a 3-1 road trip but disappointed after blowing a two-goal lead Monday night against NHL-best Tampa Bay, the Bruins broke it open with four goals in the third period for their 12th consecutive victory at home. It’s their longest streak since winning 14 straight during the 2008-09 season.Pastrnak completed his fourth career hat trick and third this season with a power-play goal to make it 4-2 with 7:08 to play Vladimir Sobotka Jersey Womens , triggering a flow of hats that littered the ice. He became the first Bruins player with a trio of hat tricks in one season since Hall of Famer Cam Neely in 1993-94.“It helps a lot for me coming back from after a long time (away),” Pastrnak said. “It was a little bit tough at the beginning.”The Bruins had gone 1-7-2 in their last 10 games against the Rangers, including losing the first two meetings this season.Backup goalie Jaroslav Halak made 20 saves. Jake DeBrusk, Charlie McAvoy and Patrice Bergeron also scored for Boston, which went 4 for 6 on the power play.“It’s hard enough to win in this league when you don’t beat yourself,” Rangers coach David Quinn said. “We did a lot of good things early, hanging around a good hockey team, then just imploded.”Mika Zibanejad had two goals and Ryan Strome also scored for the Rangers, who have lost six of seven as the season nears a close. Their rebuilding project continues after dealing away eight players off the roster at the past two trade deadlines.Henrik Lundqvist stopped 26 shots, losing for just the second time in his last nine games against the Bruins. He made a highlight-reel save midway into the first period on Chris Wagner when he lunged across the crease to make a stick save.“They have a lot of good players, but first, to win any games we have to play smart,” Lundqvist said. “We can’t have two too many men on the ice (penalties) Carter Hutton Jersey Womens , for example. There’s no excuse for that.”Pastrnak’s second goal broke a 1-all tie at 9:15 of the second. It came off a nice setup from David Krejci, who cut around Rangers defenseman Tony DeAngelo and shifted from forehand to backhand before slipping a cross-ice pass to the winger, who sent a one-timer into the net from the right circle.Pastrnak then made a beautiful cross-ice pass to DeBrusk, who made it a two-goal lead 3:19 into the third.With the Rangers short-handed following their first too-many-men-on-the-ice penalty, Pastrnak one-timed a feed from Brad Marchand, moving Boston ahead 2:48 into the game.The Rangers tied it with a power-play goal of their own when Strome sent Zibanejad in alone and he reached back to slip a forehand behind Halak as he was moving across the edge of the crease at 16:29 of the first period.NOTES: The Bruins announced they’ve reached a 10-year agreement with their AHL affiliate in Providence, Rhode Island. They’ve been together continually since 1992. … Team president Neely met the media to discuss the agreement with Providence and was asked about the probable first-round playoff matchup with Toronto, which entered the night as the Eastern Conference’s fourth-best team. “We don’t want to look past anybody. We’ve got a strong division with Toronto and Tampa,” he said. “Would I like to see 2 play 7? Probably.” … Boston D Torey Krug returned after missing six games while he was in concussion protocol. … Nearly half (40 of 76) of the Rangers’ games have been decided by one goal. … New York D Brady Skjei took a puck off the side of the head and left the ice in the third.UP NEXTRangers: Host the St. Louis Blues on Friday.Bruins: Host Florida on Saturday. Boston beat the Panthers 7-3 on the road last Saturday.
