Lee Stempniak scored two goals in quick succession in the third, but could not quite tie the game as the Carolina Hurricanes lost a 3-2 decision to the Edmonton Oilers Tuesday night.

Stempniak scored at the 3:18 minute mark in the third and then again less than one minute later at 4:14. He was unable to capitalize on his momentum, however, because he was sent to the penalty box at the 5:00 minute mark for high-sticking Patrick Maroon. The Hurricanes were hoping they could do to the Oilers what the Jets and Canucks did to them in the first two games and that was overcome a big deficit. In their first two contests the Canes had a lead of at least three goals at one point.

Lee Stempniak has signed a two-year, $5 million contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Stempniak is getting a nice raise from the $850,000 contract he signed with the Devils last off-season. He managed 16 goals and 41 points for New Jersey in 63 games before he was dealt to Boston where he had 10 points in 19 games. All-in-all, he had a good fantasy season last year but don't expect 51 points this season. A 40 point year is more likely so draft him accordingly.

Lee Stempniak may remain with the Bruins if his salary demands aren't too high.

He earned a one-year, $850,000 deal with the New Jersey Devils in October after he joined the team in September on a professional tryout.

Boston forward Lee Stempniak scored in the Bruins' 5-2 loss to the Rangers in New York Wednesday night.

It was Stempniak's first point in seven games. His high-profile linemates assisted on the goals. Brad Marchand, who was pointless in his previous five games, picked up his 21st assist of the season while Patrice Bergeron notched his 34th. Frank Vatrano had Boston's other goal, his seventh of the season. The Bruins never led in this one, trailing 3-0 until Stempniak's goal and 4-1 until Vatrano's.

Lee Stempniak hasn't picked up a point in the last six games.

He generated six points in his first four games with the Bruins. Stempniak isn't alone, as linemates Patrice Bergeron (scoreless in four) and Brad Marchand (pointless in five) have also struggled to pick up points lately.

Lee Stempniak has been a great fit alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand since he was acquired from New Jersey.

He has recorded one goal and five assists in five games with the Bruins. "You always try and hit the ground running," Stempniak said. "I think part of (the success with Bergeron and Marchand) is they have a tremendous amount of chemistry between themselves. They make plays, they handle the puck, they're tough to play against and they're always around the puck. They're tenacious. Those things tend to allow you to have the puck a little bit more, get more chances and spend more time in the offensive zone."
