Lightning look to complete sweep of Blue Jackets

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov is having the kind of season that should yield a number of awards, while the Eastern Conference powerhouse club has its eyes on the biggest prizes.

Winners of five straight and seven of its last nine, Tampa Bay (44-11-4) opens a two-game road trip when it plays at the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena on Monday night.

The Lightning, wearing their recently unveiled third uniform on Saturday night, beat Montreal for the third time this season and look to do the same to Columbus. The Lightning have won the first two of the three-game season series against the Blue Jackets by a combined score of 12-2 -- 8-2 on Oct. 13 and 4-0 on Jan. 8.
