It was his seventh goal in six games.Beauvillier pulled New York within two, backhanding the puck through Vasilevskiy’s five-hole for his 15th at 3:21. Beauvillier then deflected Johnny Boychuk’s slap shot from the right point with his 16th at 4:36.”We looked pretty good for two periods,” Hedman said. ”Obviously in the third period we were on our heels a little bit. We’ll take the two points and get a good night’s sleep tonight.”Point extended Tampa Bay’s lead to 4-1 on a short-handed 2-on-1 break for his 28th at 2:43 of the second.With the Islanders still on power play, Pulock got them within two just 47 seconds later.Lee scored from the left side to pull New York to 4-3 at 5:15 of the middle period.Miller gave the Lightning a two-goal lead on a 2-on-1 rush at 8:27 with Tampa Bay’s league-leading 263rd goal of the season, breaking the franchise record set in 2014-15.Sergachev made it 6-3 on the power play for his ninth with 8:38 remaining in the second, and Miller’s power-play goal, his 20th, made it a four-goal game with 1:40 left.The Lightning, who didn’t travel to the New York area until earlier in the day because of the snowstorm in the northeast on Wednesday, got on the scoreboard with two quick goals to start the game.Cirelli scored on a wraparound off Gibson’s stick 2:09 into the first period, and Johnson made it 2-0 just 26 seconds later on a wrister from the right circle for his 21st.The Islanders were on a 4-on-3 power play when Pulock fired a one-timer from the left faceoff dot to make it 2-1 with 9:36 remaining in the opening period.Hedman restored the Lightning’s two-goal lead from the left circle for his 14th with 5:43 to go in the first.NOTES: The Lightning bested their previous mark for wins set in 2014 when they went 50-24-8 en route to reaching the Stanley Cup Final. … Miller has seven goals and 12 points in 11 games since being acquired from the New York Rangers at the trade deadline. … Tampa Bay’s Yanni Gourde had two assists to give him 58 points, second among rookies – trailing only the Islanders’ Mathew Barzal, who leads with 76. … Barzal had an assist on Beauvillier’s second goal for his 56th assist, breaking a tie with Nicklas Backstrom (2007-08) for the second-most by a rookie since 1995.

(AP) Panthers coach Bob Boughner went from hopeful to desolate to elated in a matter of seconds.Filip Forsberg’s apparent tying goal with 0.6 seconds left was disallowed due to goalie interference, giving Florida a 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.”It was a crazy finish Authentic Matt Ioannidis Jersey ,” Boughner said. ”Ten seconds to go and you’re thinking it’s over, then you see the clock tick down and the puck go in.”Viktor Arvidsson was posted in front of Florida goalie Roberto Luongo on the play, and his stick made contact with Luongo as he tried to shove in a rebound. The puck slid under Luongo in the crease, and Forsberg swooped in for an easy score. It was called a goal on the ice, but replay officials ruled that Arvidsson had interfered with Luongo, saying his stick ”caused Luongo to spin and cause the covered puck to come loose.””Obviously, at first, I wasn’t quite sure what happened, but once I saw the replay, the puck was between my legs and the guys just basically pitchforked me,” Luongo said. ”And as he spun me around, the puck came loose. I was happy that they made the right call there because it was going to be a little bit upsetting if that would have been a goal.”The Predators didn’t agree.”We scored a goal to tie the game with less than a second left, and then they take it away from us,” Forsberg said. ”This one was clearly a goal. The puck is never covered, the goalie had no clue where it is, and it ends up on my tape and it’s in.”Luongo tied a season high with 45 saves. Colton Sceviour scored the winning goal and Jonathan Huberdeau also scored for Florida. Luongo started his second game in two nights and had to take fluids intravenously after Monday’s 3-2 win over Carolina.”After last night’s game, I made sure that I did whatever was necessary to get the recovery needed within 24 hours to play again. I was happy the way I felt,” Luongo said.Roman Josi scored for NHL-leading Nashville Matt Ioannidis Jersey Elite , and Pekka Rinne made 31 saves. The Predators would have clinched the Western Conference with a win.”We played a good game,” coach Peter Laviolette said. ”Their goalie played really well. There’s a lot at stake for them as well. Our guys played hard, we just couldn’t hit the back of the net.”The Panthers are four points behind the Philadelphia Flyers for the second wild card in the Eastern Conference and five behind the New Jersey Devils with a game in hand.”It was a great to finish to a hard-fought game by both teams,” Boughner said. ”A tough test in back-to-back against the best team in the league. (Luongo) made some amazing saves when they had their pushes. He was the difference tonight.”Sceviour stretched the Panthers lead to 2-0 at 10:33 of the third. Evgenii Dadonov flipped the puck from behind the net back to Sceviour on the right side, who poked it past Rinne.”I was the beneficiary there,” Sceviour said. ”(Dadonov) did a lot of the work there and made a heck of a pass. I just had to put it in pretty much an open net.”The Predators closed to 2-1 on Josi’s goal with 3:52 left in the third. Josi fired a shot from in front that got past Luongo.Huberdeau’s deflection gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead with 1:30 left in the first.
