The Tampa Bay Lightning are not happy with their power play of late.
Some of the team's players felt like their power play cost them Saturday's game against Washington, when they didn't capitalize on a two-minute 5-on-3 chance. "Maybe I just got to start blasting the puck and get back to some old habits and good things are going to happen,’’ captain Steven Stamkos said. "Early on (in the power play), take a few shots on net and if it doesn’t go in, create some scrambles then we can make some plays. We’re trying to be too cute. We have to find a way to be better.’’ The Lightning's overall power play numbers aren't terrible. They have the ninth best unit in the NHL at 21.7%. Dec 14 - 12:30 PM

Jon Cooper would like Steve Stamkos to be more selfish going forward.

"He's a shooter, and we want him to continue to shoot the puck, because not a lot of guys are as gifted putting the puck in the net, and that's what we want him doing." Stamkos has 16 goals in 28 games this season (on pace for 47 goals). It's scary to think that Stamkos could stand to shoot more.

Steven Stamkos rang in a goal and two assists in Thursday night's 5-0 romp over the Buffalo Sabres.

Stamkos has as many goals (16) as assists so far this season, and got back on track Thursday after having a five-game point streak snapped by the Sabres on Tuesday. The 24-year-old sniper has gone consecutive games without a point only once this season, a back-to-back affair on Oct. 21-22.
Dec 5 - 12:41 AM

Steve Stamkos is currently on a four-game scoring streak.

Stamkos has only picked up a point in 14 of his last 17 games. He has 15 goals and 28 points in 24 games this season. Stamkos is on pace to score 50-plus goals for the third time in his career. He is and will continue to be an elite fantasy option for many years to come.

Steve Stamkos scored a goal and two assists in Tampa Bay's 4-3 win over the Rangers on Wednesday night.

Stamkos has now registered a point in nine of his last 10 games. The 24-year-old sniper now has 15 goals and 27 points in 23 games. He's on pace to score 53 goals this season, and if stays healthy, it shouldn't surprise anyone if he surpasses that number. Ryan Callahan (twice) and Nikita Kucherov also scored for the Lightning.

Steven Stamkos scored in the Lightning’s 2-1 win over the Wild on Saturday night.

Stamkos’ power-play goal is his 14th marker of the season, which puts him in a tie atop the goal-scoring list. His 24 points are third-best, two. In his last nine games, he has failed to get on the score sheet just once. Suffice to say, he will be among the league’s top producers all season long. Alex Killorn got the other goal. Anton Stralman assisted twice, while Jason Garrison and Ryan Callahan recorded the other assists.
Nov 22 - 10:21 PM

Steven Stamkos sniped his 13th goal of the season in Tampa Bay's 5-2 loss to Toronto on Thursday night.

The superstar now has 15 points in his last 12 and 23 points through 20 games this season. HIs team, however, is struggling after two consecutive 5-2 losses. Stamkos will try to help the Bolts get back on track at home Saturday against Minnesota.
Nov 21 - 12:22 AM

Steve Stamkos scored his 12th goal of the season on Monday night to tie him for the league lead.

He also added two assists in a 5-1 win over the New York Rangers. Stamkos is currently tied for third in the NHL with 22 points in 19 contests. He has picked up at least one point in six straight games.
Nov 18 - 9:32 AM

Steven Stamkos scored his 11th goal of the season on Thursday night, but it was all the offense the Lightning could muster in a 2-1 loss to San Jose.

Stamkos is on a four-game point streak and currently has 18 points in 17 games thus far. Expect the league's best sniper to stay on track for just over the point-per-game pace and make a bid to break the 50-goal plateau for the first time since 2011-12.
Nov 13 - 11:29 PM

Steven Stamkos scored a pair of goals in Tampa Bay's 4-3 shootout win over Detroit.

Stamkos now has 10 goals on the season. Stamkos tied the game at one, and then gave the Bolts a 2-1 lead. The 24-year-old now has 16 points in 15 games this season. He was named the game's second star. Stamkos is one of the three best fantasy options going forward. He should be untouchable in every fantasy league.
Nov 9 - 9:38 PM

Steven Stamkos has not had to carry the entire scoring load this season.

The Bolts have a tremendously balanced attack that is not totally reliant on Stamkos and top line wingers Valteri Filppula and Ryan Callahan to score. The second unit of Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson and Nikita Kucherov has been more prolific so far this season, while third-line center Vladislav Namestnikov (three goals) and fourth-line pivot Brian Boyle (four goals) have also contributed. Tampa is a dangerous team. Just imagine if Jonathan Drouin kicks it up a notch.
Nov 8 - 11:45 AM

Steven Stamkos fired home two goals and an assist on Thursday night en route to a 4-3 Lightning win over the Flyers.

The sharpshooter now has eight goals and four assists in just 11 games so far on the season. Valtteri Filppula helped out his captain by assisting on both of his goals and registering three assists in total on Thursday. Stamkos is on pace for 60 goals this season, which is quite a bit more attainable than Rick Nash's current pace for 84 goals.
Oct 30 - 11:20 PM

The Steven Stamkos - Jonathan Drouin connection is already well underway.

Stamkos opened the game's scoring on Friday night off a pretty give-and-go rush in the first with Drouin. So beware rest of the NHL. Stammer only had one other shot on goal and skated over 23 minutes. Relatively quiet, but also highly efficient. The Lightning won the game 4-2.
Oct 25 - 12:33 AM

Steve Stamkos earned the third star of the week for the period ending Oct. 19.

He led the NHL with five goals and recorded six points in three games. Stamkos kicked off the week with his eighth career hat trick and a career-high 12 shots in a 7-1 win over Montreal.
