There's a reason Steven Stamkos is a two-time Rocket Richard Trophy winner. The Lightning sniper has a nose for the net and he certainly showed it again against the Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday night.

The Lightning sniper has a nose for the net and he certainly showed it again against the Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday night in Tampa, Fla.

Trailing 1-0 in the second period, Stamkos tied the game after breaking in from the right side. As the 23-year-old was going to down to the ice after getting hooked by Leafs defenceman Mark Fraser, Stamkos fired a backhand shot over goalie James Reimer.

The goal was Stamkos's 29th of the season, two shy of league-leading Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals. Tampa Bay eventually won the game 5-2 over the Leafs.
