It wasn’t just the team captain, it was the whole team! Steven Stamkos set a new record for most goals by a Tampa Bay Lightning player, and the team’s win ensured the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference lead for regular season and the President’s Trophy for best record in the NHL.
Steven Stamkos scored his 384th career goal with the Tampa Bay Lightning, passing Vincent Lecavalier.
The Tampa Bay Lightning earned the President’s Trophy for the first time in franchise history. It only took them 73 games to achieve that goal, and that’s the second-fastest in NHL history. (Detroit Red Wings did so in 71 games in the 1995-96 season)
This makes the Lightning the first Tampa Bay area team of the four major sports to finish the regular season with the best overall record.
