When someone talks to me about Steven Stamkos scoring goals: And Stammer never lets a girl down. Last night he scored his 200th career goal in the Lightning win over the Flyers. Bonus yay.
Alone in my car with Game Center Live radio playing on my phone, I yelled, “Hey girl, I’m Steven Stamkos!”
Not the 200th goal.
Stammer is the 4th youngest player to reach the 200 mark (Gretzky, Lemieux and Hawerchuck were younger). It’s really impressive… now please stop reminding me that he’s 23. Steven split the Rocket Richard trophy with Crosby in ’10 and won it himself last season. He could be on his way to another with a League-leading 21 goals. The Rocket Richard Trophy has only been around since ’99 [link], and no one has won three. (Selanne got 1 and Bure had 2 – both would have won 3 each if it had been introduced earlier). Among active players, Iginla and Ovechkin have each won it twice. Did I mention #200 was an empty-netter? Who cares? You could celebrate by buying this limited edition Tissot Steven Stamkos watch in Lightning blue for $460.
Or spend $460 and get tickets to every Lightning game for a year (probably).
This morning, take a moment to applaud Stamkos’ achievement.Tags: steven stamkos, tampa bay lightning
