Speedy ‘gifted’ forward has ability to push Tampa Bay over the top
TAMPA, FLA. — By the time the mad ride ended, the memory of Steven Stamkos’s first goal was gone, or nearly. Neither the Montreal Canadiens nor the Tampa Bay Lightning could hold a lead for longer than three minutes and 15 seconds in Montreal’s 5-4 Game 1 victory, and by the end, Stamkos wasn’t what people will remember. They will remember the adrenalin of overtime sloshing back and forth, which was ended — a little improbably — by Dale Weise.
