NEWARK, N.J. -- This season's edition of the Tampa Bay Lightning owns the team record for wins and is likely to set the team record for points.
With 51 wins, the Lightning exceeded the total of the 108-point 2014-15 club that reached the Stanley Cup Final. They also own 106 points, matching the total by the 2003-04 championship team, which held the record until 2015.
Tampa Bay gets its first opportunity to match the club record for points in a season Saturday when it visits the New Jersey Devils.
The Lightning (51-19-4) might be playing for a chance to exceed the mark but are 0-1-1 in the first two meetings with New Jersey. >> Read more
