NHL: Painful fall for Stephen Stamkos

The Tampa Bay Lightning will be keeping a close eye on the condition of captain Stephen Stamkos after a 3-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

The striker left Saturday’s game in the first half. Stamkos fell dramatically onto the ice after making contact with Joey Anderson. He tripped after being knocked down by a Hawks player’s skate and got up in pain.

He headed to the locker room and the organization confirmed moments later that he would not return to action without giving more details about his injury.

On the scoreboard, Brayden Point made it one with two goals, one of which broke the tie late in the game.

After opening the scoring for Tampa, Point hit the target for 43H times this season with only a minute remaining in the third period. With the score 2 to 1, Brandon Hagel closed the books in an empty net.

Only Taylor Radish got better than Brian Elliott’s 23 pinch saves. Petr Mrzek was busier as he made 34 saves.

In 65 games this season, Stamkos has scored 27 goals and 66 points. The Lightning are third in the Atlantic Division with 82 points.
