The 25-year-old was a plus-2 with three shots, one hit, and one block in 17:57 of ice time. Stamkos has 30 goals and 53 points in 58 games this season. Stamkos has hit the 20-goal mark in each of his first seven NHL seasons, and it is the fourth time that he reaches the 30-goal plateau. He continues to be a top-two sniper in the league.

Steve Stamkos ripped himself for a bad turnover in Thursday's 6-3 loss to St. Louis.

He was stripped of the puck by David Backes, who set up Alexander Steen to give the Blues a 3-1 lead. "I can't make that turnover at that time of the game, that kind of killed us," Stamkos said. "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.

Steve Stamkos produced a goal and an assist in a 5-3 win against Dallas on Thursday.

Steve Stamkos tallied two goals and added an assist at the All-Star Game on Sunday in a 17-12 loss to Team Toews.

Stamkos suited up for the home side (Team Foligno) in Columbus and he had a good time. "It was a fun game," he said. "Tough one for the goalies, obviously, with the amount of skill out there. ... Obviously a lot of goals. The fans were probably happy about that."

Steve Stamkos could see himself re-signing with the Tampa Bay Lightning on July 1.

That's the earliest Stamkos is eligible to sign a new contract. If he wanted to, he could play out the 2015-16 campaign and then have his choice of teams as an unrestricted free agent, but he enjoys playing in Tampa Bay and says he wants to stay. The big question is how much he'll get paid. Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews agreed to matching eight-year, $84 million contracts, so you would have to think that Stamkos could command even more if he wanted. At the same time, the salary cap looked a lot healthier when Kane and Toews signed. Now that the Canadian Dollar has crashed, the long-term cap numbers appear less certain and it will be interesting to see if Stamkos ends up taking a little less as a result.

Steve Stamkos scored two goals in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Bruins.

Stamkos has recently been overshadowed by teammates Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat and Nikita Kucherov, but he has quietly scored four times in his last three games and 25 times on the year. Ryan Callahan also added a marker for the Lightning in the loss.

Steven Stamkos scored a goal in Monday's 7-3 blowout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

This game was not kind to the Lightning. Not only were they obliterated by the Flyers, but they lost both Tyler Johnson and Victor Hedman to injury. Stamkos' first period goal tied the game at one, but Philadelphia responded by scoring six unanswered goals. Stamkos has 23 goals and 41 points in 44 games this season. Brian Boyle and Ryan Callahan also scored for the Lightning.
Jan 12 - 9:40 PM

Steven Stamkos,Tyler Johnson and Jonathan Drouin will represent the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2015 NHL All-Star game.

Stamkos has 22 goals and 40 points in 43 games this season, while Johnson has 17 goals and 45 points in 43 games this season. Drouin was selected as one of the NHL's top rookies, and he will take part in the skills competition. "It's pretty special and a tremendous honor to be recognized,'' Johnson said. "But it's one of those things where there would be no way I would be in the running or even be mentioned in the same sentence if I didn't have the team and the line that I'm playing on. They have helped me out through the entire year and they have helped me look better."
Jan 11 - 12:39 PM

Steven Stamkos scored the game-winning goal in Tampa Bay's 2-1 win over Buffalo.

Stamkos' third period goal broke a 1-1 tie just over five minutes remaining. The game between the Atlantic division's best and worst teams finished closer than many had anticipated. Don't let the score fool you. The Lightning outshot the Sabres 47-21 in the contest. Stamkos has 22 goals and 40 points in 41 games this season. The 24-year-old is on pace to surpass the 40-goal mark for the fourth time in his career.

Steve Stamkos would like to produce more.

"I want to definitely get back to the standard I hold myself at, but when you're winning hockey games, it's that contagious attitude, how good it feels to win, to be atop the standings and hopefully go on a deep playoff run," Stamkos said. "That's when you need everyone to step up. I still feel like I have a lot more to give." Tampa Bay has been rolling thanks to the combination of Tyler Johnson, Nikita Kucherov and Ondrej Palat. Stamkos has four goals and two assists in his past 15 games and three points in his last eight outings. Despite his slump, he still leads the Bolts with 21 goals in 42 matches.
Jan 9 - 10:51 AM

Steve Stamkos netted his 21st goal of the year in Sunday's 4-2 victory over Ottawa.

He scored on a great individual effort to get his third game-winning goal of the season. "I was just trying to work hard tonight and on that one, I got the puck on the sidewall ... used my speed and strength to get to the net," Stamkos said. "It was good to see that one go in." He has four goals in his past 12 outings, which qualifies as a slump for the talented sniper. The Bolts will be hoping that this goal helps to ignite him a bit.
Jan 5 - 9:21 AM

Steven Stamkos scored the winning goal at 11:05 of the third period to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 3-2 victory against the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs Monday night.

The Leafs squandered a 2-0, first-period lead in this one. Stamkos, unguarded in front of the Leafs' crease, redirected defenseman Matthew Carle's shot from the blue line past Toronto goalie James Reimer for his 20th goal. Stamkos also had six shots on net in the game and assisted on a goal by Ryan Callahan in the second period. Callahan now has 12 goals on the season. The Lightning's other goal was netted by Valtteri Filppula (7th). Victor Hedman had two assists for the Lightning, who will travel to play the Buffalo Sabres Wednesday.

Coach Jon Cooper isn't worried that Steve Stamkos has taken a slight dip in the point department this month.

"He has been competing really hard the past few games and he's getting involved at both ends of the ice," Cooper said. "It's just the puck is not going in for him right now. But he's the last guy you have to worry about with the puck going in because it eventually will again. He can score in bunches, so right when you think he is mired in a little bit of a goal-scoring slump, he throws three right at you the next game." Stamkos has contributed four goals and four assists in 13 games during the month of December. Playing with several different linemates hasn't helped and he's projected to start Monday's match versus Toronto alongside Brett Connolly and Cedric Paquette.
