Star Tampa Bay centre Steven Stamkos out with broken leg

BOSTON - Tampa Bay Lightning star centre Steven Stamkos has been taken off the ice on a stretcher with a right leg injury after crashing into the post against Boston.

The team's leading scorer and one of the top players in the league, Stamkos was backchecking on a play late in the second period Monday when he got tied up with Boston defenceman Dougie Hamilton. The pair went into the net hard.

Stamkos immediately grabbed his right leg and was rolling on the ice in pain.

After a brief delay, a stretcher was brought out and he was taken off to loud applause. As he was carted off, he put both hands to his face in apparent pain.

Quote of the Day

It was the look in his eyes. Hockey is the most important thing in his life. He wants to be a hockey player, and nothing's going to stop him from being a hockey player.
