4. 1000th Career Game

Great accomplishment for any player, but even more special when it is with the same team that drafted him.

3. 50th Goal in 2006-2007

First player in Lightning history to score 50 goals in a season and lead the league in goal scoring.  Finished the 06-07 campaign with 52 goals.

2. Lecavalier Hoisting Stanley Cup

The ultimate goal for every hockey player and Lecavalier was a big part of the team’s championship.  Scored big goals throughout the playoff run for the Lightning.

1. Lecavalier vs. Iginla Fight in SFC

The Stanley Cup Finals.  Two star players.  High emotions.  Gloves dropped.  Nothing better than seeing the stars and leaders for their respective teams fighting.

My name is Stephen Ness and I'm blogging for the Lightning. I've played and been obsessed with hockey since I was 5 years old. Growing up in the Boston area, I fell in love with the Lightning and my favorite player, Marty St. Louis, in 2003. 10 years later, I'm still rooting for the team in hope they can win another Cup for Marty and Vinny. I'm currently studying Sport Management and Accounting at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst while running track for the school. My goal is to have a career in hockey's front office and blogging helps keep me as close to the game as possible.
