Tommy Wingels scored two goals and Patrick Marleau added a goal and two assists to help the San Jose Sharks get their first home win in more than a month with a 5-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night.

Brad Stuart and Brent Burns also scored for the Sharks, who looked well-rested after having three days off following a winding, five-game road trip in which they changed time zones after every game. Antti Niemi made 36 saves and Logan Couture had three assists.

Tyler Johnson scored for the Lightning, who dropped their season-worst third straight game on a rough West Coast trip that ends Friday night in Anaheim. Tampa Bay has been outscored 16-6 in losses to Phoenix, Los Angeles and San Jose as they are struggling since losing star center Steven Stamkos to a broken right leg last week.
