Bolts by the numbers: December 26 edition

Who's hot heading into this week:

1. DOMINIC MOORE
The Lightning forward has points in five of his past seven games, registering two goals and five points in that span. He has been held off the score sheet in two of the past three games, but held a four-game point streak, his longest since the 2008-09 season, leading up to the Bolts’ match-up with Columbus on Dec. 17.
2. VINCENT LECAVALIER
The Bolts captain has points in all but two of his past six games with a goal and five points over that stretch. He assisted on Pavel Kubina’s goal in the team’s last game on Friday night at Colorado and has four assists in his past five games.
3. MARTIN ST. LOUIS
The winger has recorded points in two straight contests since returning from injury on Dec. 21 at San Jose. St. Louis also had points in consecutive games prior to suffering facial and nasal fractures, which in addition to his current streak, gives him points in each of his past four individual games played.
4. ERIC BREWER
Brewer has points in three of his past four games, registering a goal and two assists. He logged 26:00 of ice time against the Avalanche on Friday night, which was just the sixth time all season he has played more than 26 minutes in a single game.
5. TEDDY PURCELL
The Bolts forward, like Brewer, has recorded points in three of his past four outings. He has logged over 16 minutes in ice time in each of his past two games, which marks the most since he saw 17:37 of playing time back on Nov. 28 at Minnesota.

Bolts By The Numbers

Game-winning goals by Vincent Lecavalier, which ties for third-most in the league. Wins when trailing after two periods, tied for most in the NHL. Game-deciding goals by Dominic Moore in the team’s past five shootout wins.
Of 13 total home games, number which have been sellouts at the St. Pete Times Forum this season, in which a capacity crowd of 19,204 has filled the seats to cheer on the Bolts. 
Consecutive seasons in which captain Vincent Lecavalier has scored at least 10 goals in each, good for the NHL’s fifth-longest active streak.
Goals by Steven Stamkos this season, which is tied for second among all NHL skaters. Ten of Stamkos' goals have come on home ice.
Combined goals by Vincent Lecavalier and Steven Stamkos this season, which are just seven behind the NHL’s leading teammate goal-scoring duo of Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp who together have accumulated a total of 38.
