VIDEO: Steven Stamkos goes coast to coast, beats Price on wrister
Steven Stamkos took the puck from behind own net and didn't stop until he was celebrating a goal on Carey Price. Coast to coast.
In the playoffs, games are supposed to tighten up and every bit of space is supposed to be tough to come by.
Steven Stamkos is immune to these expectations.
In what was a pretty simple set play, Stamkos took the puck from behind his own net and then just breezed through all three zones, going right by Brandon Prust as if he were a pylon, and fired a wrist shot that beat Canadiens goalie Carey Price on the far side.
Coast. To. Coast. What a play.
It was not Price's finest moment, getting beat from a sharp angle but credit to that shot too, perfect placement and pace.
