And chief among those players is franchise legend Martin St. Louis.
St. Louis scored his 300th career goal with the Lightning the other day, putting him 61 goals behind fellow line-mate Vincent Lecavalier for the franchise record. In the aftermath of the game, head coach Guy Boucher had some touching words to say about St. Louis, which you can find below the jump:
