He did it: Steven Stamkos scores No. 60

Apr 7, 2012, 9:16 PM EDT

The Tampa Bay Lightning won’t look back at 2011-12 with a ton of fondness, but you can forgive Steven Stamkos for holding some nice memories. The elite sniper accomplished a rare feat on Saturday as he scored his 60th goal of the season.

As the NBC Sports Network gang points out, it only makes sense that Martin St. Louis collected a primary assist. The pint-sized winger’s precise passes have fueled many of Stamkos’ goals since he entered the league – particularly in the last three seasons.

Stamkos is just the second player (Alex Ovechkin did it in 2007-08) to score at least 60 since Jaromir Jagr reached the mark all the way back in 1995-96.

      Guy Boucher also revealed that during game 3 of the Penguins series last year Stamkos broke his clavicle. That means he played the series against Washington and Boston with a broken clavicle on top of taking that puck to the face. This guy is a class act, a great player and a MAN to top it all off.

    Props to the Jets fans who gave him the applause he deserves – 60 goals is an impressive benchmark by any means

    Good for Stamkos. I don’t get to see a lot of the Bolts, but he seems like a classy kid. And kudos to the Jets fans for saluting Stamkos on #60 – class act by them.
