Steven Stamkos and his looming goal-scoring milestone
Very minor news update for tonight's game (and upcoming games against the Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes if necessary): Steven Stamkos is currently at 249 career goals scored in his seven season NHL career. His next goal is #250. If he accomplishes it tonight, it will be done in game #439 of his career.
Stamkos is #3 in franchise history for goals-scored behind Martin St. Louis (365) and Vincent Lecavalier (383). Stammer also happens to be #4 in franchise history in points with 458, behind Brad Richards (489), Lecavalier (874) and St. Louis (953).
And he's not yet 25 years old...
