After scoring 51 in the 2009-10 campaign and getting off to a torrid start this season it looked as though Steven Stamkos was a lock to hit the 50-goal mark once again this year.

But Stamkos has had trouble finding the back of the net since the all-star break, scoring a measly five goals in his past 22 games. Now, not only is he in danger of not reaching the 50-goal plateau, he faces the very real possibility of Daniel Sedin or Corry Perry keeping him from capturing his second straight Rocket Richard Trophy (Stamkos tied Sidney Crosby for the award last season).

THN’s Ken Campbell takes a closer look at the challenges of scoring 50 goals in today’s NHL.
