Steven Stamkos reaches 60 goals
WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos has joined the NHL's 60-goal club.
He scored at 3:29 of the third period at the last home game of the Winnipeg Jets.
Although they chanted "No goal Stamkos" all night every time he had a chance at the puck and booed initially, Winnipeg fans gave him a standing ovation a few seconds after he scored.
Just 19 players have scored 60 goals or more in a single season.
The exclusive group includes players such as Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Brett Hull.
