Tampa, FL. -- Saturday’s game against the division-rival Florida Panthers was set to be memorable for Martin St. Louis before it even started.

Playing in his 900th career game, St. Louis scored three times to record his fifth career hat trick and help the Tampa Bay Lightning rebound from a previous loss by earning a 6-3 victory over the Southeast Division-leading Panthers at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Steven Stamkos added his league-leading 34th goal of the season, and Nate Thompson also scored for Tampa Bay, which has won six of its past seven..
