Video: Steven Stamkos' 40th Goal Of The Season

Who could have guessed that Steven Stamkos would have 17 more goals than his next closest teammate on the Tampa Bay Lightning after 64 games? The 20-year-old is having an incredible sophomore year with 76 points, only trailing linemate Martin St. Louis. Stamkos scored twice yesterday against Atlanta to reach the 40-goal plateau and added an assist. You can see No.40 below.

"This kid is special." You got that right. Currently on a 16-game point streak where he's produced 29 points, Stamkos is tied with Dany Heatley for the most powerplay goals (16). With 18 games to go for the Lightning and at the rate he's going, 50 goals is a possibility for the kid who struggled notably during the first half of his rookie campaign.
