Steven Stamkos C TB 28 Days

Stamkos was held off the score sheet Friday against the Penguins. He has picked up points in just one of his last six games.

He's still firing plenty of pucks ... 24, in fact. But this is the first period of time this season where he's actually scuffled. It won't last, but those of you in head-to-head formats are banging your heads against a wall right now. You can't sit him, but he's not delivering. An outburst will come very soon, though.

Stamkos scored his 20th goal of the season in Monday's 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs. His goal stood as the game winner. He also added an assist.

The burst was a welcome sight -- it was his first multi-point game since Dec. 4. But despite a slow December, he's still fourth in the NHL in goals and just outside the top-10 scorers overall.

Stamkos has recorded only three goals and an assist over his last nine contests.

That level of production over that span of time certainly doesn't provide any reason for fantasy owners to sound the alarm, but it still represents the most significant dry spell of the season for Stamkos. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Bolts have gone just 3-5-1 in those contests, though a slump of some extent was probably due to occur after the team's attack torched opponents over the season's first two months. The Tampa offense still looks like one of the league's strongest units in spite of its recent downturn in productivity, and Stamkos remains the lynchpin. Stay patient with the 24-year-old, as his resume of three 90-point campaigns suggest order will restore itself eventually.

Stamkos potted his 17th goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Capitals.

He's on pace to deliver more than 90 points, including more than 45 goals. He's currently in the NHL's top-five in goals behind Tyler Seguin, Rick Nash and Vladimir Tarasenko.

Stamkos scored a goal on four shots, assisted on two more (one on the power play), went plus-2 and collected four penalty minutes Thursday in a 5-0 rout of the Sabres.

After a rare three-game stretch without a goal (though he still has two helpers), Stamkos returned to filling up the stat sheet. Curiously, the four shots represent his highest total in the last six games.

Stamkos delivered a power-play assist in Monday's 6-3 win over the Rangers. The point stretched his current scoring streak to five games and seven points, including four assists.

He's been remarkably consistent -- he's been held off the score sheet just twice in his last 16 games. And in that span, Stammer has delivered nine goals and 12 assists in that span. His 29 points put him squarely in the NHL's top-five scorers. Use him well.

Stamkos (lower body) notched a power-play goal in Saturday's win over Minnesota. It was his 14th goal of the season.

He now has 24 points in 22 games and is just one goal behind Tyler Seguin for the league lead in snipes. He's been remarkably consistent this season and has been held off the score sheet just once in his last nine. And he's never been held pointless for more than two games at a time. Whatever injury he suffered sure doesn't seem to have impacted him.

Stamkos (lower body) was on the ice for Saturday's optional morning skate and looks like he'll be in the lineup later in the evening against the Wild, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

As was believed all along, the lower-body injury Stamkos appeared to sustain late in Thursday's game won't cost him any action. Fantasy owners should have no qualms about keeping Stamkos in their lineup Saturday.

Stamkos scored his 13th goal of the season in the Lightning's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs on Thursday night. However, he may have suffered a lower-body injury earlier in the game.

In-game cameras picked up shots of him awkwardly doing the splits early in the game and then struggling with acceleration/pushing off when pivoting. And post-pivot, he appeared to have problems lengthening his stride. That smacks of a groin issue; we'll find out more in the next couple days.

Stamkos recorded a point in his sixth consecutive contest, tallying a goal and a pair of helpers in Monday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.

Stamkos now has 12 goals, good enough to tie him for the league lead. He's well on his way to another 50-goal, 90-point season as he continues to light up the scoresheet.
