Stamkos scores twice, Bolts beat Oilers

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Steven Stamkos had two goals to help the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 on Thursday night for their sixth win in seven games.

Stamkos, who extended his goal-scoring streak to five games, has 13 goals this season. Ben Bishop made saves on first-period breakaway shots by Mark Arcobello and Taylor Hall.

Taylor Fedun and Hall scored for the Oilers, who have lost six of seven. Fedun, playing in his second game, also scored in his NHL debut Tuesday night at Florida.

Hall, the first overall pick in the 2010 draft, returned after missing seven games due to a knee injury. His in-close power-play goal got Edmonton within 3-2 midway through the third.

Stamkos put the Lightning up 1-0 when he beat Devan Dubnyk from the high slot 7:37 into the game. The center has eight goals and 12 points during a seven-game point streak.

After Fedun scored at 10:11, Stamkos gave Tampa Bay a 2-1 advantage on a wraparound goal with 52.7 seconds left in the first.

Bishop turned aside all 15 shots he faced in the second. Tampa Bay got the lone goal during the period to go up 3-1 when Tyler Johnson scored from the low shot at 18:33.

Valtteri Filppula added an empty-net for the Lightning with 1:05 to play.

The Lightning are 6-0-0 against Western Conference teams this season.

NOTES: Tampa Bay starts a three-game road trip against Atlantic Division foes Saturday at Detroit. The Lightning will also play at Boston and Montreal. ''I think it will be a big test,'' Stamkos said. ... Edmonton LW Jesse Joensuu (back), D Anton Belov (lower back) and D Justin Schultz (groin) are all practicing. LW David Perron (neck) could soon resume practicing with the team. ... Oilers LW Linus Omark played after being recalled from Oklahoma City of the AHL on Wednesday. ... As part of Military Appreciation Night, the Lightning wore camouflage jerseys during the pregame skate.
