Video: Steven Stamkos shouldn’t be able to do this
There are impossible angles, and then there are angles that are impossible for mere mortals.
Steven Stamkos scored an unbelievable goal on Tuesday that falls into the latter category. Not only was it a mind-blowing goal, but it was also very important; that tally tied Tuesday’s contest at 3-3 in the dying seconds of the third period.
The Tampa Bay Lightning went from a close loss to a 4-3 shootout win against the Florida Panthers thanks to Stamkos’ heroics:
Alex Killorn captured many of our thoughts in saying “I was shocked he was trying to shoot it. Just a really unbelievably skilled play by a skilled player.”
If Stamkos was the cocky type, he’d respond “I tried to shoot it because I can.”
