Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Two points against Wild
Sergachev collected two assists while adding four shots on net, five hits, two PIM, a blocked shot and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Minnesota.
It was a typically full line in the box score for Sergachev, although he was also mostly responsible for a short-handed tally by the Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek as the Tampa Bay defenseman whiffed as he tried to bat the puck out of the air at the Minnesota blue line before losing a race to Eriksson Ek, who then scored on a breakaway.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: First goal since return from injury
Sergachev scored a goal in Saturday's 5-3 win over Arizona.
He wired a shot from the point that deflected off the stick of Arizona's Lawson Crouse and knuckled past Karel Vejmelka to knot the game 2-2. It was Sergachev's first goal since his Dec. 20 return from an upper-body injury. It has taken him a bit to get back up to speed since his return, but the defender now has two points (one goal, one assist) over his last three games. Victor Hedman has started to erode Sergachev's power-play time over the last month, so it may be hard for the 24-year-old to keep his torrid early season pace going.... See More ... See Less
