TAMPA — Martin St. Louis tied a Tampa Bay scoring record, it just wasn’t enough to lift the Lightning to a win.

Just two minutes into the second period, St. Louis had matched the club mark with four goals on the game. The Lightning had the lead, but it wouldn’t last.

Joe Pavelski scored three straight goals of his own in the second period to help the San Jose Sharks rally for a 5-4 victory on Saturday.

Pavelski beat goalie Ben Bishop twice in a span of 21 seconds midway through the period, and then added the winner a minute before the intermission.

St. Louis struck three times against goalie Antti Niemi in a span of 7:34 in the first period for his eighth NHL hat trick. His fourth goal early in the second equaled the team mark set by Chris Kontos against Hockey Hall of Fame goalie Ed Belfour and the Chicago Blackhawks in Tampa Bay’s inaugural game on Oct. 7, 1992.

St. Louis scored twice on the power play against a penalty-killing unit that hadn’t allowed a goal in six consecutive games. His four goals were one more than San Jose had allowed in its previous four games combined.

Tampa Bay sustained its fifth straight one-goal loss at home.

“Spotting him with four goals, it’s lucky we won the game,” said Sharks captain Joe Thornton. “He’s been a great player for a lot of years. He knows what to do when he gets the puck.”

Thornton also reached a milestone, joining Hall of Famer Bobby Hull in 48th place on the NHL career list with 1,170 points with his assist on Pavelski’s winner.

“Right place right time,” Thornton said. “He just has a knack for finding the back of the net. For us to come back down 4-2, it was big for us.”

Matt Nieto and Patrick Marleau put San Jose ahead 2-1 with goals three minutes apart midway through the first period. St. Louis scored his first goal in between, then struck twice more before the intermission.
