Steven Stamkos had a great goal during a 4-3 Monday night win over the Colorado Avalanche.
During a bit of chaos in front of the net during the second period, Stamkos found himself on the ice behind the net. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
With the puck right in front of him and the goalie caught up in the confusion, Stamkos tapped it into the net for a great goal.

That’s about as sexy as it gets when it comes to goals in the NHL. Stamkos was in the right place at the right time and showed great awareness.
When you’re on the ice in the NHL, you always need to have your head on a swivel. That’s exactly what Stamkos did here, and it resulted in putting a point on the board.
We love seeing big hits and great goals, and Stamkos got the latter done in impressive fashion with this one.
There’s a reason why he’s one of the best players in the league. Props to him for putting together another great highlight!
