Tuesdays with Dani: Stamkos first to hit 30 goal mark this season

I would start this intro about how the two teams playing tonight faced off last year in the Eastern Conference final and now are at polar opposite of the Eastern Conference standings, but instead let's talk about how Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times has Steven Stamkos as one of her pluses in her pluses and minuses article, citing Stamkos being the first player to reach the 30 goal mark this season.

  • Steve Yzerman is focusing on the long-term prosperity of the franchise saying "We're not giving up our picks and our top prospects, period. I've been humbled before in this game many times.

No matter what, we're not going to sacrifice the future around here.'' (The Tampa Tribune)
