Stamkos set up the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Florida.

He has five points in his last four games and 67 on the season. He's tied with Tyler Johnson at the top of the Bolts' scoring list and they both sit just outside the league's top-10 scorers. You know what to do.

Stamkos took on Brad Marchand in a fight in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Bruins.

Marchand had been running around a bit too much and laid a questionable hit on Valtteri Filppula. Stamkos stepped in and took him on. Stammer has just 45 PIM on the season, so this was a real rarity.

Stamkos had two goals and added an assist in Monday's win over Montreal. He now has 39 goals on the season, which ties him with Rick Nash for second in the NHL.

The first one came after a gift pass from the Habs' Max Pacioretty, who foolishly passed the puck back into his own zone where it was stolen by Stamkos who made no mistake with the gift. The second came on the power play into an empty net. He's now tied with Tyler Johnson for the team lead in points (65). #nhlstud.

Stamkos scored his 37th goal of the season in Thursday's shootout loss to the Bruins. He remains third on the NHL's goal-scorer's list.

He also received a 10-minute misconduct for pitching his stick over the glass. He broke his twig in OT and tossed it behind him; it went over the low glass. The misconduct increased his PIM total by a whopping 33 percent on the season.

Stamkos' scoring streak now stands at four games and six points, including four goals, after picking up two assists in Thursday's win over the Maple Leafs.

He has 11 points, including eight goals, in his last nine games. He might be rolling under his typical point-per-game pace, but 61 points in 66 games still puts him on the edge of the league's top-10 scorers. And there's nothing wrong with that. Use him well.

Stamkos opened the scoring with what turned out to be the game-winner Tuesday in a 3-0 win over Buffalo.

He's now got goals in three straight, having found twine four times in that span. While he's been thin on assists this year and remains short of his typical point-per-game-plus pace, Stamkos remains one of the best scorers in the league and is on pace to easily blow by 40 goals, with a shot at 50 if he lights on fire over the season's final month-plus.

Stamkos potted two goals on seven shots in Friday's impressive 4-0 shutout of the visiting Blackhawks. He now has 34 tallies on the year, three back of Rick Nash and five behind Alex Ovechkin for the league lead.

Stammer has cranked things up over the last couple weeks, bagging six goals in his last seven games. He's never been a strong plus/minus guy with a career minus-2 rating (he's also a minus-2 this year) and even though his 23 assists are nothing to write home about this season, he's simply one of the most lethal goal scorers in the game. Stamkos appears to be really finding his groove here, so don't be surprised if he goes off for something like a point-and-a-half per game in the final 19 contests of the season.

Stamkos scored his 32nd goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Coyotes. He has four goals and one assist in his last five games.He's now alone in third on the NHL's goals list and he's on pace for 43 snipes this season. But don't think that's a poor projection for a guy who's tallied 60. The Bolts' scoring is so spread around that others are getting the chances instead of him. He's just as great as he's always been.

Stamkos scored a goal and added an assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Sharks. The goal was his 30th.He has three goals and four assists in his last six games and his 53 points are in the league's top-15. Interestingly enough, his 15.8 shooting percentage is under his average 17.2 and that could spell an uptick in snipes soon enough.

Stamkos nette his 29th goal in Tampa's 6-3 loss to St. Louis on Thursday night.He's right there in the NHL's top-five goal scorers' lists, but his overall pace is a big slower than we've become accustomed. This is his first season since his rookie year (2008-09) that he's scoring at less than a point per game.
