Steven Stamkos wasn't pleased with the way his team came out in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final against Washington.

The Bolts found themselves down 4-0 after two periods on home ice and they managed just 10 shots on goal through 40 minutes. "It's disappointing and frustrating when you don't come out the way you want to play,'' Stamkos said. "It's one thing if you play well and you don't get the win. But I don't think we deserved to be in that game." The Lightning will look to even up the series when they host Game 2 on Sunday night. They can't afford to go to Washington down 0-2, so they'll need their best effort.

The Bolts captain finished the night with a minus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 19:19 of ice time.

Miller hasn't exactly been firing on all cylinders in the postseason, but they have made contributions. "Everybody asked, 'Why didn't they have two or three points a night?' You know what they did? They didn't get scored on, and when we needed them, they came up huge for us," coach Jon Cooper said.

Steven Stamkos knew it was only a matter of time before Tampa Bay's top line got going offensively in Round 2 of the postseason.

We knew eventually it was going to come." He scored the game-tying goal Friday in Tampa Bay's 4-3 OT win and he added an assist on Nikita Kucherov's first marker of the series.
May 6 - 9:58 AM

May 3 - 9:51 AM

Steven Stamkos has one goal in his last 19 appearances dating back to the regular season.

Stamkos hasn't picked up a point through two matches versus Boston and he needs to get going again.
May 2 - 9:12 AM

Steven Stamkos felt that the Lightning did better in Game 1 on Saturday than the score suggested.

The Lightning suffered a 6-2 loss to Boston. "I mean, other than the score," Stamkos said, "I thought we played pretty well." Tampa Bay did out shoot Boston 36-24 and the contest was close for through 40 minutes. Boston scored three unanswered goals in the third period to turn it into a blowout. The loss certainly hurts Tampa Bay, especially seeing as it came at home, but this series is far from over.

Steven Stamkos recorded at least a point in each game of the first round.

The Lightning bested the Devils in five games while Stamkos contributed a goal and six points. It was a good showing out of Stamkos, though Nikita Kucherov was their standout player with five goals and 10 points in the first round. Still, that's part of the Lightning's strength. They have a superstar in Stamkos, but the Lightning have so many offensive weapons that Stamkos doesn't always need to be the hero.
