TAMPA Womens Paul Byron Jersey , Fla. (AP) — the Vegas Golden Knights didn’t fold.Instead, they rallied to beat the NHL-leading Tampa Bay Lightning.Alex Tuch scored the only goal in a shootout and the Golden Knights halted a four-game skid with a 3-2 victory Tuesday night.Vegas got goals from Cody Eakin and Valentin Zykov in regulation. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 24 shots.“Definitely a good feeling,” Fleury said. “Playing the best team and coming up with a win is a good confidence booster.”Brayden Point and Mathieu Joseph scored for the Lightning, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 35 saves. Steven Stamkos had two assists to give him 14 points over his last 10 games.“It wasn’t our worst game we’ve played all year, it wasn’t our best,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. “It comes down to the shootout. Two good goalies, it’s probably just going to take one.”The Golden Knights, helped by a power play, outshot Tampa Bay 6-0 in overtime.“Vasy stood tall,” Stamkos said.Vegas had lost five of six coming in. The Golden Knights scored seven times in the victory and had a combined seven goals in the losses.“I know we lost the past four games before this Authentic Shea Weber Jersey , but even though it was in a shootout I thought that we played hard and played pretty good defensively,” Tuch said.Zykov tied it 2-all 5:22 into the third period on his fifth career goal and first since March 26.Tampa Bay took a 2-0 lead at 14:19 of the second when a video review overturned a no-goal call on Joseph for goalie interference. Stamkos’ shot went off a Vegas defender and Fleury before going into the net off Joseph.Eakin made it 2-1 on a breakaway 2:09 later off a pass from Jon Merrill.“It was big. It got us back in the hockey game,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “We played a good, hard game against a real good team. So, we’re happy to end that streak, for sure.”Point opened the scoring 6:36 into the game with his 31st goal on a power play. He returned after missing one game with what appeared to be a right leg injury.Nikita Kucherov got his 59th assist on Point’s goal and has an NHL-best 81 points.The Lightning’s league-leading power play went 1 for 5 against the Golden Knights, who ranked second on the penalty kill. Vegas failed to score on three power plays, including one that came late in the third.Golden Knights center Ryan Carpenter was shaken up late in the second after going into the boards on a check by Cedric Paquette. Carpenter tried skating off the ice twice on his own and needed a teammate and later a linesman to keep him from falling to the ice.Gallant had no update after the game on Carpenter’s injury.NOTES: Paul Stastny’s seven-game point streak ended. Stastny had three quality chances stopped by Vasilevskiy. … Lightning RW Ryan Callahan was scratched for the third time in four games.UP NEXTGolden Knights: Complete a four-game trip Thursday night at Detroit.Lightning: Host the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night. The Los Angeles Kings will try to avoid their longest losing streak in nearly 11 years when they begin a seven-game homestand against the New York Rangers on Sunday afternoon at Staples Center.The Kings (2-7-1) have lost six in a row and haven’t led at any point during that streak. Los Angeles hasn’t lost seven in a row since an eight-game skid in January 2008.“Losing in this game is not enjoyable,” Kings coach John Stevens told reporters after a 4-1 loss at the Minnesota Wild on Thursday. “We’re in this business to win, so at the end of the day, results are two points whether you do good things or don’t do good things.”Article continues below ...The Rangers (3-6-1) are also looking for improvement after coach David Quinn said they played their worst game of the season on Thursday night in a 4-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks Victor Mete Jersey , which opened a four-game road trip.New York was outshot 37-19 and produced just one shot on goal in the third period.“We’ve done a good job of skating and competing, but that certainly wasn’t the case tonight,” Quinn said.The Kings should get a boost with the return of right winger Dustin Brown, who broke a finger in the final preseason game and has been sidelined since. Brown, who will turn 34 on Nov. 4, scored a career-high 61 points last season and was plus-31 in 81 games.Brown’s offensive abilities couldn’t arrive at a better time. The Kings haven’t scored more than two goals in each of their past six losses, and haven’t led since a 3-0 win on Oct. 11 at the Montreal Canadiens.“We’ve just got to bear down offensively, especially in the blue paint, inside the dots,” Stevens said. “Those are the areas, I think Colton Sissons Jersey , that we can come up with some more pucks if we get a few more pucks to the net. You can’t play perfect. You can’t win 1-0 every night. It’s tough to win that way.”The Kings will likely be up against veteran goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, in his 14th NHL season.Lundqvist has started eight of 10 games this season and owns a 2-5-1 record with a 2.61 goals-against average and .920 save percentage.Lundqvist has struggled at Staples Center in recent years, however.He lost all three of his starts in Los Angeles during the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals and the Kings won the series in five games. He has lost both appearances at Staples Center since those Finals as well, giving up seven goals on 66 shots (.894 save percentage).Rangers defenseman Adam McQuaid left in the first period of the loss to Chicago with an unspecified injury and his availability against the Kings is in doubt. Tony DeAngelo, another right-shot defenseman, would likely slide into the lineup after serving as a healthy scratch the past six games.The Kings are hoping the next seven games on their home ice will help turn their season around.“We always want to be a good home team, so no better time to go home than right now and get things back on track,” Kings forward Anze Kopitar said.
