LIGHTNING LOSES KEY PLAYER BEFORE PLAYOFFS; HEDMAN TO PLAY THROUGH INJURY

The Tampa Bay Lightning announced on Sunday afternoon that forward Barclay Goodrow would be out indefinitely after suffering a upper-body injury in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Florida Panthers.

Goodrow likely suffered the injury when he fought Florida Panthers forward Noel Acciari late in the third period on Saturday night.





The injury news keeps getting worse for the Lightning as defencemen Victor Hedman, Jan Rutta (UBI), and Ryan McDonagh (LBI) are all listed as day-to-day, and did not play against Florida on Saturday. While it's unclear if the trio will play on Monday, the Lightning's star defenceman Victor Hedman is expected to play through the pain and suit up in the playoffs.

During Saturday Headlines on Hockey Night in Canada, Sportsnet insider Chris Johnston revealed that Hedman is expected to undergo surgery in the off-season to repair his unspecified lower-body injury. The injury occurred during a fall in Tampa Bay's game against Columbus in late March, and Hedman has been playing though it ever since.

The injury news isn't all bad for Tampa Bay as captain Steven Stamkos, and Nikita Kucherov skated this week, and are expected to be in the lineup for game one of their first round series against the Florida Panthers.
