Stamkos hits 50, Bolts strike down Bruins

Steven Stamkos became the first player to reach goal burst to subdue Boston, 6-1.

Tom Pyatt, Nate Thompson and Ryan Shannon tallied in the opening minutes for the Lightning, who snapped a three-game skid.

Dustin Tokarski earned his first NHL victory, stopping a career-best 33 shots.

Jordan Caron supplied the lone offense for the Bruins, losers of three in a row and five of seven.

Marty Turco started the game but was yanked after allowing three goals on six shots in less than five minutes. Tim Thomas filled in for just under 19 minutes before Turco was reinserted. The former's ledger ended with four scores allowed on 12 shots, and the latter was dented twice on five shots.
