I was trying to get open and shoot the puck every time I could."

Steven Stamkos hasn't been prioritizing scoring goals as he's instead been setting up the red hot Nikita Kucherov.

Kucherov already has 10 goals this season and Stamkos has assisted on eight of those markers. "When you got a guy like 'Kuch' on your line, there's probably a lot of people yelling at me to shoot the puck more, but he's so hot, you just try to get him the puck," Stamkos said. "Obviously, when you're getting points, your confidence in your game is extremely high to make plays and (you) want to make plays." Stamkos hasn't just been setting up Kucherov though. Through nine games, Stamkos has an incredible 15 assists and 18 points. Stamkos has traditionally been known as primarily a goal scorer, but he's showing that he can be a league leader through other means.

Stamkos already has three goals and 15 assists in 2017-18. It's good to see Stamkos healthy and contributing to the Bolts' success again.
