After being labelled as the Stanley Cup favourites, the Tampa Bay Lightning have lost two games in a row after winning their opener. 

Back to back 4-3 losses has one of their top players pretty upset and not very optimistic. 

Steven Stamkos says the team will go nowhere if they keep it up. 

"We just continue to be the freewheeling team that thinks we can just come into games and win because we're skilled," Stamkos told Diana C. Nearhos of the Tampa Bay Times. "We keep falling back into the same old habits that we've been doing, that cost us the season we had last year.

"Unless we change things, it's going to be a really, really, really long year."

After winning the Presidents' Trophy last year, the team was swept by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round. 

"Everyone is sick of talking about it and not doing it," Stamkos said. "Let's go do it."
