The Tampa Bay Lightning certainly put on one heck of a show against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The two points that the Lightning earned in this encounter allowed them to regain their spot in the Eastern Conference Standings. There is no denying that one of the driving forces in this game that opened the door for the win was the natural hat trick from Lightning captain Steven Stamkos.
The action would be spread across two periods of play. The first of which would not come until just over the halfway point in the period.
At 13:22, Stamkos would capitalize on the power play, notching goal number one; his 17th of the season.
What did you think of Stammer’s performance in last night’s game against the Maple Leafs? Do you think he has what it takes to lead the Lightning into the post season? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
