I hope I didn’t exhaust the #sorrychuck tag this weekend, because it needs one more outing. Steven Stamkos scored his 50th goal of the season last night in Tampa Bay’s 6-1 rout of the Bruins.
I was #Landeskoging all over even though I wasn’t watching the game. Stammer was the first star, naturally.
Enjoy this out-of-focus post-game interview, which will make you feel like you had a few celebratory beers.
It’s no secret that I really want Tampa Bay to make the playoffs (just not at the expense of Washington). I refuse to acknowledge the chance this might not happen, instead preferring this formula for success:
- The Capitals win their last 12 games straight, maybe even one in regulation.
- The Lightning win 12 of their last 13, excluding the one they lose to the Caps.
- The Panthers, Sabres, Jet and Maple Leafs (and hell, the Senators too) lose all of their remaining games.
I just need more of this:
Unless Evgeni Malkin goes on a goal-scoring tear in Pittsburgh (hey, it could happen), Steven will win the Rocket Richard Trophy for most goals. He shared the award in 2010 with Crosby – also known as the Day of the Disco Suit.
Geno and Stammer are neck-and-neck for the Art Ross Trophy (most points overall), with Gingeroux hot on their heels. Sorry Claude but I want Stamkos for one, Malkin for the other and cupcakes for everyone.
I’ll be the girl in the Lightning shirt at the gym later. Come say hi.
