Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos nets 50th goal against Panthers
Tampa Bay Lightning star center Steven Stamkos scored his 50th goal Saturday against the Panthers. His second goal of the game, both on the power play, was his 50th and came 5:28 into the second period and gave Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead. He is the 88th player to reach 50 goals, and the second Lightning with Vinny Lecavalier, who had 52 in 2006-07. Stamkos also tied Washington's Alex Ovechkin for the league lead in goals. Both are one ahead of Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby, who also is playing Saturday.
