Steve Stamkos hasn't scored a goal after three games against the Red Wings in the playoffs.
He had eight shots in Game 1 and two assists in Game 2, but he was held in check on Tuesday in Detroit when matched up against Pavel Datsyuk. "Does Stammer wish he has a goal or two in this series? For sure," said coach Jon Cooper. "Do I think Detroit will keep him down the whole series? I don't. It's just a matter of time." He will look to get on the board in Game 4 Thursday night.

Steve Stamkos said the Lightning have a "quiet confidence" going into the playoffs.

"We are turning the page here from just being satisfied with getting into the playoffs," he said. "This is two years in a row here getting in and we are ready to make some noise. We have to have that belief and confidence heading in that we are not satisfied with just being in it." Stamkos has just 22 games of NHL playoff experience under his belt, but he has produced eight goals and 17 points during that time.

Steven Stamkos netted two goals and had an assist in the Lightning’s 4-0 win against the Panthers on Saturday night.

Stamkos also had five shots on goal and a plus-two rating, scoring on the power play and at even strength. While he has 42 goals, his 71 points have come without much fanfare thanks to a second line that has been among the league’s best. Of course, Stamkos is still a game-changing player and one of the best fantasy assets around. Ryan Callahan and Tyler Johnson each had a goal and an assist.

Steve Stamkos has not scored a goal in seven games.

Saturday night against the Panthers would be a good time for Stamkos to break out of his longest scoring drought since 2009. "It's obviously tough. You don't want to go through stuff like that," said Stamkos. "I just want to keep working hard. For me, it's about trying to get back to before the streak, (when) I was doing well." We have a feeling Stamkos will bulge the twine Saturday night.

Steven Stamkos wasn't impressed with his team's effort during Saturday's 4-0 loss to Detroit.

"We did not play well,’’ Stamkos said. "The compete level wasn’t there, we didn’t generate much so that’s a tough one. When you play like that you can’t expect to win, and we had some spurts but we didn’t really do too much today.’’

Stamkos was assessed a 10-minute misconduct penalty in overtime after he broke his stick on an attempted one-timer and inadvertently tossed it into the stands. He wasn't able to participate in the shootout. "I don't know how many sticks I've broken in that situation this year," said Stamkos. "Then I'm obviously a little frustrated that it broke in that situation and to see it go over the glass, I knew right away it was a 10 (minute penalty)."

"We had the momentum, we were getting some chances, it's a 2-1 (game) and I screwed up. I can't blame anybody else but myself for that one. ... It was tough. For me personally, I was feeling really good, had an extra step and then that happens. It's unacceptable for that to happen at that point in the game and I take full responsibility for that." Stamkos scored his 29th goal of the year in the defeat.
