TAMPA, Fla. – Martin St. Louis tied a Tampa Bay Lightning record with four goals, but Joe Pavelski responded scored three of his own in the second period to help the San Jose Sharks rally for a 5-4 victory on Saturday.
Pavelski beat goalie Ben Bishop twice in a span of 21 seconds midway through the period, and then added the winner a minute before the intermission.
St. Louis scored three times in a span of 7:34 in the first period for his eighth NHL hat trick. The Lightning captain's fourth goal early in the second tied the team mark set by Chris Kontos against Hockey Hall of Fame goalie Ed Belfour and the Chicago Blackhawks in Tampa Bay's inaugural game on Oct. 7, 1992.
