07:41 AM ET 02.20 | After a 10-day break, the Lightning, along with the rest of the NHL, is back. Top center Steven Stamkos is included in that group after missing three months with a broken leg. The two-time Rocket Richard Trophy winner passed the 14-week mark since having surgery to insert a titanium rod and continues to skate with the team. His next scheduled X-ray will take place early next week to determine whether or not he will be cleared to return in time for Tampa Bay's next game. "It feels good now, and it's getting better, that's important," said Stamkos. ... "I'm definitely very close, but the kind of thing I'm putting into my head is that if I'm not back for that (four-game) road trip (that starts in Nashville), then worst-case scenario is when we get back home (March 6). The best case is I'm ready for Nashville."

Yup.

That is why Canuck is forbidden from using the "Stay Puff" nick name.

Could he put up another outstanding performance tomorrow???
