Lightning find spark as they face Islanders

On Saturday night in a rout of the San Jose Sharks, the Tampa Bay Lightning gave their fans a glimpse of how they are supposed to be playing.

The Lightning, who won 62 games last season and were victorious 32 times at Amalie Arena, blitzed the visiting Sharks in a 7-1 win, pulling away by way of a four-goal third period.

Tampa Bay hosts the New York Islanders in a 7 p.m. ET start on Monday.
