19:40 BUF Vanek (9), (Sekera, Spacek)(PP)
Steven Stamkos, who got his first NHL point in the Lightning's last game, exploded for 2 goals and an assist and first star honors. I've taken some flack for this on the Bolt Prospects message boards, but I honestly believe this young man has the best shot of any 18 year old I've seen come into the league since Kovalchuk. You get the feeling the floodgates may have finally opened in this game for young #91.
Stamkos played 13:47 and was +2 with 4 shots on goal and 2 hits. He was also 25% on draws in the contest.
