Steven Stamkos heard the boos from the Jets fans Saturday night.

It has become a tradition at the MTS Centre that the opponent's star player gets that treatment. So every time the Lightning center touched the puck, the boos rained down long and loud.

That is, until Stamkos scored his 60th goal. That is when the crowd stood and cheered as Stamkos, 22, became the 20th player to reach the milestone.

"It was incredible," Stamkos said. "I have a lot of respect for all the fans here. That made it even more special, to do it in Canada and have them give me an ovation like that. It was amazing."

It was even better to get it in a 4-3 overtime victory in the season finale. "Something I'll remember forever," he said.

Teddy Purcell finished off a hat trick with the winning goal 1:07 into the extra period. Vinny Lecavalier had two assists, and Dwayne Roloson was superb with 28 saves as Winnipeg had a 31-25 shot advantage.

As the game ended, Stamkos gave Roloson a huge hug.
