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.

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
