NHL: Steven Stamkos Scores No. 54 and 55 to Pad Rocket Richard Lead (Video)

1 of 3

    Don't tell Steven Stamkos there's nothing left to play for.

    For all intents and purposes, the Tampa Bay Lightning's season is over, sitting a distant nine points back from the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference with time dwindling down.

    Yet, despite his team's disappointing venture through the 2011-12 season, Stamkos continues his goal-scoring assault.

    Stamkos scored both Lightning goals in a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Bruins last night, adding to his Rocket Richard lead over Evgeni Malkin and further proving his unwavering effort.

    Check out goals No. 54 and 55 of Stamkos' extraordinary scoring campaign.

    Stamkos' wrist shot is something to behold. Not only is it from a difficult angle, but it came at top speed. Check out the bend in the stick as well. His release is, well, "lightning" quick (pardon the pun).
