VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Steven Stamkos scored his 500th NHL goal, then added two more for a hat trick, leading the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 5-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks Wednesday evening.

Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov each had a goal and an assist in Tampa Bay’s fifth straight win. Alex Killorn had two assists and Brian Elliott stopped 37 shots.

Andrei Kuzmenko and Quinn Hughes each scored a power play goal in the third period for Vancouver (18-23-3).

Canucks goaltender Spencer Martin allowed four goals on 10 shots before being called off just after the halfway point of the first period. He was replaced by Collin Delia, who made 14 saves.

The Lightning (29-13-1) also beat the Canucks 5-4 in Tampa last week.

Vancouver hasn’t won in regulation since a 4-2 win over Colorado on Jan. 5. The Canucks are 2-8-0 in their last 10 games.
