TAMPA -- Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos scored his 250th NHL goal 47 seconds into the second period against the Washington Capitals at Amalie Arena on Tuesday.

Stamkos took a centering pass from Ryan Callahan and sent a wrist shot around the defense of Brooks Orpik and past goalie Braden Holtby on the stick side to tie the game 2-2.

The Capitals won 5-3.

"People may not believe me, but all that stuff, whether it's 200 or 250 … it doesn't register to me," Stamkos said. "If you get to the big one of 500, maybe that's something different, but there's a lot of hockey to play and my focus right now is producing and scoring goals and helping our team win, and it wasn't good enough [Tuesday]."

TAMPA -- Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos didn't want to make a big deal about closing in on his 250th NHL goal.

Truth be told, he doesn't think it's much of a milestone.

"It's kind of cool to think about when you are getting close to something like that, but I never really thought something-and-50 was a milestone," Stamkos said before scoring that goal against the Washington Capitals on Tuesday. "I think when you get to 200, 300, 400 … I mean it's halfway to 500, but if we're at 499 one day you can ask me if I'm thinking about the next goal. Not that I am taking it for granted, it's always fun to score goals, but I want to help this team."

Stamkos scored 47 seconds into the second period at Amalie Arena. It tied the game 2-2, but the Lightning lost 5-3.

MONTREAL -- They wouldn't have stopped of their own accord. No, they only stopped because she asked them to.

The capacity crowd at Bell Centre on Tuesday wanted more than anything to show their appreciation, especially after a moving video tribute to the late Jean Beliveau got them even more eager to do so.

From afar, the fans in this city watched Elise Beliveau show her strength this week in greeting every single person who visited Bell Centre on Sunday and Monday as her husband lay in state. She shook hands and accepted condolences from a public that was almost as much a part of her family as her own daughter and grandchildren.

Finally, given the opportunity to do so in the same venue, but one now meant for such an outpouring of gratitude, the fans at Bell Centre stood and cheered.

And cheered some more.

OTTAWA – Former Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean said Tuesday he hasn't second-guessed himself about any of his decisions behind the bench.

MacLean, who was 114-90-35 in four seasons with the Senators, was fired Monday and replaced by Dave Cameron, who was an assistant on MacLean's staff.

"I have no regrets over the way I did anything. I have no regrets. I can't change anything. It's all done," MacLean said. "All I can change is maybe what I would do going forward. But I'm not changing nothing that I did behind me and I don't regret anything I did, the way I did it, how I did it. I did it the best way I thought it would be to get the team to play in June. That's all it was about."

OTTAWA -- Dave Cameron apparently doesn't do anything too quickly.

The new coach of the Ottawa Senators jokingly said he holds the record for taking the longest to get an undergraduate degree at University of Prince Edward Island, at 10 years.

"I enrolled in '76, graduated with the class of '86," said the 56-year-old, who became the Senators' 10th coach when Paul MacLean was fired Monday.

Cameron was pursuing his career as a hockey player during that 10-year span, which included three NHL seasons with the Colorado Rockies and the New Jersey Devils.

It's taken him a long time on a long road, but he has his first job as an NHL coach.

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- A potential World Cup of Hockey and the status of the next wave of outdoor games were key topics of discussion when the NHL wrapped up its annual December Board of Governors meeting here.

On the final day of the two-day meetings, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said the reincarnation of the World Cup of Hockey remains a work in progress, but significant headway has been made toward being able to announce details of the tournament, which is rumored to be scheduled to be held before the start of the 2016-17 season.

"We're focusing, together with the [National Hockey League] Players' Association, on a point in time where we will have an announcement where we can get past the rumor stage and actually get specific with you as to what it will look like," Bettman said Tuesday. "We are not at that point yet, but the Governors were given an update as to where we are."

Tuesday, 12.09.2014 / 2:48 PM / News

Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry will miss 3-4 weeks with a knee sprain, the team announced Tuesday.

Perry was injured in the first period Friday against the Minnesota Wild when he was knocked into the boards along the right wall on a hip check by Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard. Favoring his left leg, he needed assistance to leave the ice and immediately left the bench.

"The day after it was pretty stiff, but it's feeling better every day," Perry said in comments tweeted by the Ducks. "We're thankful it was only a sprain and not a tear."

Perry's 14 goals are sixth in the NHL. He has 22 points in 23 games.

Tuesday, 12.09.2014 / 2:07 PM / News

The Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday signed goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov to a one-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Bryzgalov, who has not played this season, will report to Norfolk of the American Hockey League on a conditioning stint.

The 34-year-old split last season between the Edmonton Oilers and Minnesota Wild after his contract was bought out by the Philadelphia Flyers in the summer of 2013.

Bryzgalov was 7-1-3 with a 2.12 goals-against average and .911 save percentage down the stretch for the Wild as injuries plagued their goaltenders, and he appeared in nine Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.

— Lightning forward J.T. Brown after his first Media Day experience on Tuesday in preparation of Game 1 on Wednesday
