PHILADELPHIA -- Steven Stamkos had his second hat trick of the season and added two assists, and the Tampa Bay Lightning overcame a two-goal deficit Thursday night to beat the Philadelphia Flyers, 8-7. The 20-year-old Stamkos leads the NHL with 19 goals and 35 points. Nate Thompson scored the tiebreaking goal at 5:19 of the third period, flicking a rebound off Dana Tyell's shot past backup goalie Brian Boucher to complete the scoring. Philadelphia, whose 10-game points streak ended Tuesday night in Montreal, lost its second straight and also had its seven-game home winning streak stopped.

SOCHI, Russia -- Injuries continue to deplete the field for the Sochi Olympics men's hockey tournament even before it starts. Team Finland took a double hit on Friday when it lost forward Valtteri Filppula of the Tampa Bay Lightning to a broken ankle and forward Mikko Koivu of the Minnesota Wild to an ankle injury. Koivu had undergone ankle surgery on Jan. 6 and has not been cleared to return. “I'm not going to go to Olympic Games this year. I just don't feel healthy enough to feel that I can play at the level that I want,” the two-time Olympian said during a news conference Friday in St. Paul, Minn.

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the last week: + Tampa Bay center Steven Stamkos became the first player to score 30 goals this season, reaching that mark Friday. But he's one of the few bright spots for the Lightning in a season gone sour. Tampa Bay's defense and goaltending have declined sharply and the team is winless in seven games in January. The Lightning will be sellers at the Feb. 27 trade deadline. + The Detroit Red Wings set a club record Monday by winning their 15th straight home game.

Moguls freestyler Heidi Kloser wasn't about to let a broken leg and torn knee ligaments stop her from marching in the opening ceremony at the Olympics. That's how much the moment meant to the 21-year-old from Vail, Colo. She ended up marching in the parade, on crutches, no less, on Friday. She tweeted a picture of herself, beforehand in Olympic garb, saying: "Excited that I still get to walk!" Just a day earlier, Kloser's Olympic dream came to an end as she crashed in a training run and had to pull out of the event not long before qualifying started.

DUCKS AT TAMPA BAY When: 4:30 PST. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio: 830. Update: Gone along with a 2-0 lead to lowly Florida on Tuesday was the Ducks' nine-game unbeaten streak. Although center Ryan Getzlaf (upper-body injury) remains "iffy" to play after brief skate Wednesday, goalie Jonas Hiller (flu) said he's ready to go. The Lightning test became a bit easier when NHL leading scorer Steven Stamkos broke a leg Monday in Boston. Still, the Atlantic Division leaders rank fifth in penalty killing, 10th in shots against and goalie Ben Bishop has a league-best 12 victories.

SOCHI, Russia - Canada's Olympic hockey selection committee snubbed speedy Tampa Bay Lightning forward Martin St. Louis when it submitted its Sochi roster a month ago. The committee didn't make that mistake again Thursday, when it had to find a replacement for injured Lightning center Steven Stamkos. St. Louis, the NHL's scoring champion last season, took the open spot hours after the Lightning said tests had showed that Stamkos had not fully healed from surgery he underwent in November to insert a rod in his broken leg. St. Louis' speed should be an asset to Team Canada on the Olympic-sized rink, which is 15 feet wider than NHL ice surfaces.

Mike Smith made 33 saves and the Tampa Bay Lightning finished off the New Jersey Devils, 4-2, on Sunday in the completion of a game that was suspended two nights earlier because a lighting problem created a safety issue for the players. Tampa Bay led, 3-0, when play was suspended Friday night with 9:12 left in the second period and it merely had to kill off the final 29:12 on Sunday to end a 10-game losing streak against New Jersey. Steven Stamkos scored twice -- once on Friday and once Sunday -- and Steve Downie and Brandon Bochenski added goals in the game in which the players agreed not to protest playing three days in a row. The Devils played in Montreal and the Lightning was in Philadelphia on Saturday.

SOCHI, Russia -- The Canadian men's hockey team is expected to announce a replacement for injured center Steven Stamkos within the next 48 hours, Hockey Canada spokesman Brad Pascall said Thursday. Stamkos, of the Tampa Bay Lightning, underwent surgery in November to insert a rod into his broken leg and appeared to be progressing rapidly.

Pluses Dallas Coach Glen Gulutzan is keeping the Stars in playoff contention in the West - and might have saved his job - with wins over the Ducks, Kings, San Jose Sharks (twice) and Nashville Predators. They're younger and grittier since they traded Brenden Morrow, Derek Roy and Jaromir Jagr and they've banded together. Player to watch: right wing Alex Chiasson, who has six goals and seven points in six games since his post-trade deadline promotion. The New York Islanders' impressive push has them in position to earn their first playoff berth since 2007.

TAMPA, Fla. — The Kings are nearly unbeatable when scoring at least three goals. Too bad for them it has happened only 16 times this season. Kyle Clifford and Dustin Penner had second-period goals to lead the Kings past the Tampa Bay Lightning, 3-1, Tuesday night. Anze Kopitar also scored for the Kings, who are 15-0-1 when scoring three goals or more. Jonathan Quick, who began the game with a 2-0-0 record and a 0.38 goals-against average in three games against Tampa Bay, made 24 saves.
