Steven Stamkos Gets A Birthday Pie To The Face (Video)
No matter how many goals you have or where you rank among all NHLers in goal scoring, you are never safe from the Tampa Bay tradition of getting a face full of shaving cream on your birthday. Steve Downie and Ryan Malone proved this yesterday morning when they shared their foamy gift with the NHL’s leading goal-scorer, Steven Stamkos, on his 22nd birthday.
Unfortunately, that face full of foam would be the only gift Stamkos would receive from his teammates yesterday, as he accounted for the Lightning’s only goal during a 3-1 loss at home to the Los Angeles Kings.
Needless to say, the Lightning still owe their team’s best player a real birthday gift. A playoff appearance would be nice, but with two teams and nine points standing between them and the Southeast Division leading Washington Capitals, an expensive dinner seems much more practical at the moment.
