Lightning's Stamkos mired in prolonged scoring drought

Lightning captain Steven Stamkos can be streaky. The two-time Rocket Richard Trophy winner as the league's top goal-scorer has been through his share of droughts in his career.

Nathan Beaulieu and Brian Flynn leave the game against Tampa

The Canadiens had two players go down on the same sequence during a penalty kill. The Montreal Canadiens have found themselves in some penalty trouble so far in this game, and while on the kill for the third time of the game in the second, some bad luck would strike. Nathan Beaulieu blocked a shot by Steven Stamkos, and came up clearly in some pain. Beaulieu in some pain after blocking a Stamkos shot.

Quick Strikes for Monday, February 8

Lots of Lightning commentary, an update on the ice complex under construction in Wesley Chapel and much, much more in today’s Quick Strikes. Steven Stamkos has always been known around the NHL to have tons of offensive talent. During Friday's game against Pittsburgh, however, he got to show off his defensive talent as well, logging more time on the penalty kill than the power play. [Tampa Tribune] While the Tampa Bay Lightning have enjoyed a resurgence as of late, winning 10 out of their last 11 games, so has Tyler Johnson. [Tampa Tribune] This is a loooong way off, but the Lightning...
