Lightning visit Coyotes in apparent mismatch

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- If there ever were a trap game for the NHL-leading Tampa Bay Lightning, the Thursday contest against the Arizona Coyotes is it.

The Lightning (22-6-2) have won five consecutive games and six of their last seven. Goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy is playing at a Vezina Trophy level, with a 20-4-1 record and a 2.15 goals-against average. Center Steven Stamkos and right winger Nikita Kucherov share the league lead with 42 points apiece, while Kucherov and Washington's Alex Ovechkin each have an NHL-most 21 goals.

Already, the Lightning are looking like a team that could go far in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
