For the second time in three games, it’s been Stammer time times two, but this time, it was a pair of quick strikes for the Lightning forward.
Steven Stamkos netted a pair of goals in 32 seconds in the second period against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday to help the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 5-2 win.
The first came on a Bolts power play at 6:21, when he snuck a shot from the circle past Jackets goalie Joonas Korpisalo. Still on the man advantage, he quickly followed up with a seeing-eye snipe from virtually the same spot at 6:53 for his fourth multi-goal game of the season.
The Tampa Bay captain also scored two goals against Ottawa in a 5-2 win on Dec. 20 as well, and now has five goals in four games following a 10-game stretch without finding the back of the net. Through 35 games on the season, he's racked up 14 goals.
