TAMPA: Nikita Kucherov stopped an 11-game goal drought, Andrei Vasilevskiy made 27 saves for his NHL-best 32nd victory, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Thursday night.

Yanni Gourde, Adam Erne, Steven Stamkos and Victor Hedman also scored for the Lightning, who returned home after a 5-3 trip.

Vancouver’s Brock Boeser scored his 26th goal and Anders Nilsson stopped 31 shots.

After Gourde got his 20th goal during a power play at 1:38 of the second, Erne made it 3-0 with 6:20 left in the second in his first NHL game this season.

Elsewhere, Clayton Keller scored Arizona’s fourth straight goal at 3:55 of overtime to give the Coyotes a comeback 4-3 victory over Minnesota.
