Point will be a game-time decision for Game 6 vs. the Islanders.

Point missed Game 3, returned for Game 4 and then missed Game 5 of this series. Prior to the last game, head coach Jon Cooper said that they are trying to manage the injury, so it sounds like they want to try and rest him and still get to the Stanley Cup Final. Point is listed as a game-time decision but don't be surprised if he sits out a second straight game.

Point (hip) returned to practice on Monday.

Point was not expected to be ready for the season opener, but he was a full participant in Monday’s practice and centred the top-line with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov. This doesn’t necessarily mean Point will be ready for Thursday, but the possibility of him playing is looking more and more likely.

The Lightning have re-signed Brayden Point to a three-year contract worth $20.25 million ($6.75M AAV).

Point is coming off of a breakout campaign, having scored 41 goals with 51 assists (92 points) in 79 games. Point can expect some regression in 2020, after shooting 21.5 percent last year but ranks tied for eighth in goals (73) and tied for 22nd in points (158) over the last two seasons.

Point (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Point was scratched from the Lightning’s lineup in New York on Saturday but the Lightning said that it’s just a minor injury and it looks like he could be back in on Tuesday. Point has been outstanding this season, scoring 30 goals with 35 assists (65 points) in 51 games and is a must-start if he ends up playing.
