Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos suffered a leg injury during Monday afternoon's game against the Boston Bruins.

The Tampa Bay Tribune's Erik Erlendsson reports that Stamkos was injured after falling to the ground and sliding leg first into the goalpost on a backcheck. Stamkos appeared to be in a great deal of pain as medics on the ice stabilized his leg and placed him on a stretcher.

Aaron Ward of NHL on TSN reports that Stamkos suffered a broken tibia in the incident, and will require surgery.

The 23 year-old Stamkos leads the team with 23 points and 14 goals.
