Stamkos had surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital on Tuesday to stabilize the leg.
"Nice to be back home in Tampa," Stamkos said via his Twitter account. "Can't thank all the staff at Mass General enough for all their hard work and dedication the past 4 days!"
The Lightning said Tuesday his rehab will begin immediately but have not outlined a timetable for his return to play. The forward was tied for the NHL lead in goals (14) and points (23) when he was injured.

Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up. He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this.
