If the turnaround is to come perhaps it will start with the stars.

Perhaps it will happen in an intense game, perhaps in overtime. Perhaps it will come on a perfect pass from Steven Stamkos to Nikita Kucherov, who will poke it past an Honored opponent such as Pekka Renne of the Nashville Predators for a 3-2 overtime win 2:345 into extra time.

"He found my stick," Kucherov said later. "I got lucky."

It was the 10th goal of the season for Kucherov, and the second assist of the night for Stamkos.

It was only the second win for Tampa Bay in Nashville since 2008-2009.

Goaltender Andrei Vasilevsky had 30 saves on the night.

Also scoring for the Bolts were Victor Hedman and Ondrej Palat.

Tampa Bay is home on Thursday night against Minnesota. The puck is scheduled to drop at 7 p.m.
