    Mikhail Sergachev's dramatic return gets perfect Steven Stamkos reaction

    The Tampa Bay Lightning managed to keep their season alive in Game 4 by picking up a 6-3 victory over the Florida Panthers, and they got a surprise boost to their lineup in the form of Mikhail Sergachev. After suffering a fractured tibia and fibula back on February 7th, the overarching assumption was that Sergachev would be out for the remainder of the season, but he attacked his rehab and managed to return to the ice with his team's season on the line. Sergachev picked up an assist while also recording a hit and two blocked shots in his return to action for Tampa Bay, and his presence lit a spark under his teammates. After the game, Steven Stamkos shouted out Sergachev for pushing himself to find his way back for the Lightning, showing how fired up he was to see one of the team's top defenseman back in the fold.
