Steven Stamkos already has 31 goals this season, one behind the NHL leader, and potted 51 last year as a 19-year-old. He’s as big a scoring threat as anyone on the planet, so when he gets a penalty shot, he’s not only expected to score, he’s expected to do something incredible.
Unfortunately, that’s not what happened last night. Take a look:
