Video: Stamkos scores on his own net (but collects two goals for the Bolts)

Mar 29, 2014, 9:36 PM EDT

Despite missing a significant chunk of the 2013-14 season, Steven Stamkos has 23 goals as of Saturday. That doesn’t mean that he’s immune to a bad bounce or two, however, as a pass he made during a delayed penalty ended up in his own empty net during tonight’s game vs. the Buffalo Sabres:

Cory Conacher was credited with the goal, which gives him seven this season.

To be fair to Stamkos, he generated a goal for Tampa Bay tonight, too. He remarkably hit that 22-goal mark in just his 29th game. In other words, the Lightning can give Stamkos a hard time about this without losing sleep about it.

In the interest of fairness, here is Stamkos’ 22nd goal.

Update: He also scored the game-winner in overtime, so it didn’t take him long to get the last laugh.

    A great goal scorer cant help but find the net.

    If this was Crosby we’d never hear the end of it, but besides that things happen to all players even Stamkos caliber guys, oh well.

    Why would you bring Crosby into this? The jealously is amazing at this point.

    This has nothing to do with Crosby… And it DID get its own post after all.

    Who’s jealous? Ok maybe I’ll try and find reason with your point, I’m jealous other really good players can not get heat for every little thing they do good or bad.

    Okay, you asked for it, so here it is.

    At least Stamkos is not such a dink like Crosby is. Some great players are also class acts.
