Steven Stamkos offers Auston Matthews some advice

Steven Stamkos might not be that 50 to 60 goal scorer that he once was, but he is still one of the best, and is having another impressive season.

However, the 32-year-old Lightning captain has done everything in the game including winning two Stanley Cups. Stamkos has also had both 50 and 60 goal season, so Stamkos wanted to give Toronto Maple Leafs super star Auston Matthews some advice.


Stamkos tells Matthews:

He's got to hit his 60th goal. In 2011 I didn't want to finish with 59.

With 59 people are like it doesn't matter, it does matter. Score 49 or 59 it does matter and it will haunt you.

Auston Matthew's currently has 54 goals, tying the Toronto Maple Leafs all-time record with Rick Vaive's 1982 season total. Matthews is poised to take over the record with his next goal but Stamkos is right, Matthews needs to hit 60 goals or it'll likely eat him up inside.
