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.

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.

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.
Oct 20 - 4:44 PM

Steven Stamkos led the way for the Lightning with three points in their 4-2 win against the Canucks on Saturday night.

Stamkos scored twice and assisted on Ryan Callahan’s power-play goal in the second period. He has five goals and seven points on the season, and could conceivably lead the league in both those categories this season. Alex Killorn picked up the other goal, while Callahan also added an assist. Ondrej Palat recorded two helpers.

Steve Stamkos and the Lightning dominated the Canadiens in a 7-1 victory Monday night.

Stamkos was a man possessed in this game and the Habs had no answer for him as he notched a hat trick to go along with 12 shots on goal. Victor Hedman also enjoyed a strong evening with a goal and three helpers in the victory while Ondrej Palat, Vladislav Namestnikov and Ryan Callahan also found the back of the net for Tampa Bay.

The Tampa Bay Lightning were frustrated with their performance in the third period against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

The Lightning were 28-3-2 when leading after two periods last season, but couldn't shut things down in the final frame against Ottawa. Tampa Bay had a 1-0 lead going into the period and they gave up two goals to Ottawa. The Lightning were able to tie the game and force a shootout but they still weren't pleased with their effort. "No excuse, you have a lead in the third period you have to hold on to it and we had some uncharacteristic turnovers and Grade A chances that we gave them," said forward Steven Stamkos. "We pride ourselves on this team in our defensive play, which looked pretty good up until that period there, we had some let downs.

Steven Stamkos centered a line with Ondrej Palat and Tyler Johnson in Tampa Bay's final preseason game on Saturday.

Stamkos scored a goal in the game, while Johnson registered an assist. Stamkos should have a huge season now that the leg injury he suffered last season is behind him. Keep Palat and Johnson in mind of draft day. They are likely to start the season as Stamkos’ full-time wingers. Palat scored 23 goals and 59 points last season, while Johnson had 24 goals and 50 points in 2013-14. Look for both players to improve on those numbers, especially if they play with Stamkos for most of the season.
Oct 5 - 10:22 AM

Steve Stamkos has played with a number of linemates at training camp.

He has primarily had Ryan Callahan on the right side, but Brett Connolly and Tyler Johnson have taken turns there as well. On the left wing side, Ondrej Palat and Nikita Kucherov have seen some time alongside Stamkos. Coach Jon Cooper said he is closing in on making a decision: "I'm getting there, I like Palat there for sure, and we've mixed a few guys around on the right side, but as a staff we have a pretty good feel for the type of player that we'd like to see him with, without affecting a lot of the other lines on our team."
Oct 3 - 9:37 AM

Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik told the Tampa Tribune that he wants Steven Stamkos to be a member of the Lightning for his entire career.

Stamkos’ contract expires at the end of the 2015-16 season, and Vinik is willing to spend the money needed to keep their star center in Tampa for the long haul. "I’ll tell Steven loud and proud that I hope you are with us for your whole career and lead us to Stanley Cups," said Vinik. "I will let Steve Yzerman handle (the negotiations)." Stamkos’ future extension will likely be worth more than 10 million dollars annually.
Sep 28 - 8:44 AM

Steve Stamkos made his preseason debut Friday night in a 6-3 win over Dallas.

Stamkos registered an assist in the contest and was happy with how his right leg felt throughout the game. "In practices and scrimmages, the skating is an asset of mine and I thought I was kind of a step (slow) last year even when I did come back [from a broken right leg]," said Stamkos. "I'm feeling good, feeling confident and mentally I'm in a much better state as well." That's a scary thought for Tampa opponents this upcoming season. We expect Stamkos to return to his 50-goal, 90-plus point level of production this campaign.
