Steven Stamkos knows how to put the puck in the net and he’s been doing just that since returning to the Lightning line-up after missing most of the season with a broken right leg, but now he’s gone too far.

On Saturday, Stamkos scored in both nets. It all started with the miscue below that gave the opposing Buffalo Sabres a 3-2 lead:

Luckily for Stamkos, the error didn’t cost his team the game, as Ryan Callahan tied it at three in the third. Stamkos would make up for the earlier blunder by ripping a laser beam passed Matt Hackett to win it for the Lightning in overtime.
