Incredible billboard for the Tampa Bay Lightning

Valtteri Filppula has a pretty hard shot. How hard is it? Enough to blaze across a highway and rip another billboard in two. As seen on Reddit Hockey, Filppula is on one side of the highway taking a slapper. The Tampa Bay Lightning also purchased a billboard on the other side of the road with a phony company’s ad being torn apart by the puck. Awesome concept and execution. Wonder...

Steven Stamkos can end Sidney Crosby’s reign on top

For about a thousand good reasons, Sidney Crosby is considered the best player in the world. It probably has a thing or two to do with the fact that he’s the defending MVP and scoring champion, winning the latter by a mile and a half last year as the only player to hit the 100-point […] The post Steven Stamkos can end Sidney Crosby’s reign on top appeared first on Two Pad Stack.

Video: Steven Stamkos does the field goal challenge

Watch Steven Stamkos shoot pucks through the uprights. As cool as it is seeing Stamkos split the posts from some serious deep yardage, the star of the show is the fact this video brings back the idea of the glowing puck. Feel free to debate the legitimacy of this video, but it’s still cool seeing Stamkos put a puck through from 91 yards.

It's good: Steven Stamkos takes his slapshot to the football field

Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos is known for his stick-handling. After all, he has led the NHL in goals twice in his six-year career (60 in 2011-12 and tied with Sidney Crosby with 51 in 2009-10). But how would the nearly healthy Stamkos -- who is is second among active players with 233 goals since the start of the 2008-09 season -- fare if his shot was transported to another...
