ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. - They probably could nickname Steven Stamkos the Punisher.

The Tampa Bay Lightning centre does make opponents pay for their mistakes.

On Thursday the Oilers made two in the first period, both which ended up in the back of their net in a 4-2 loss to the Lightning.

Tyler Johnson and Vatteri Filppula added the other for the Lightning, while Taylor Fedun and Taylor Hall countered for the Oilers in the loss.

Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop was outstanding, turning aside 37 shots in the win. Devan Dubnyk made 22 saves for the Oilers.

Stamkos opened the scoring in the first period, picking up a puck just inside the Oilers blue line, left behind by Nail Yakupov, who was jumping out of the way to avoid a hit.

Stamkos then wired a shot over the shoulder of Oilers goaltender Devan Dubnyk into the top corner of the net.
