(Sports Network) - The Tampa Bay Lightning shoot for their third straight win this evening when they host the Carolina Hurricanes in the opener of a home- and-home series at St. Pete Times Forum.

Tampa Bay made it two in a row with Saturday's 6-4 win over the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Center. Nikita Alexeev scored a pair of goals and extended his points streak to a career-high five games to lead the Lightning.

Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis, Andreas Karlsson and Brad Richards also scored for the Lightning, who have won three of their last four games and notched a season high in goals. Lightning goaltender Marc Denis stopped 29 of the 33 shots he faced.

Tampa Bay played well without leading scorer Ryan Craig, who is expected to miss the next four weeks with a sprained right knee.

Meanwhile, the defending-champion Hurricanes ended a two-game losing streak with Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win against the Atlanta Thrashers at the RBC Center.
