Girardi (neck) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Girardi avoided disaster after taking a slap shot to the neck on Sunday and all tests came back negative. The Lightning called Girardi day-to-day yesterday but he was back on the ice for the morning skate and it looks like he could play alongside Mikhail Sergachev tonight.

Girardi is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

The Lightning received great information on Girardi’s status after all tests came back negative. Girardi had to be tended to by both team’s trainers on Sunday after he was hit in the back of the neck by a Martin Frk slapshot. "One of the scariest things I've ever seen in hockey," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. This is great news for Girardi, but don’t expect to see him Tuesday vs. the Senators.

The Lightning have signed Dan Girardi to a two-year deal worth $6.0M ($3.0M AAV).

Girardi’s production started to slip in recent years, leading to the Rangers buying him out this spring. Girardi will likely play a lesser role in Tampa Bay, which will be better suited for the 33-year-old defenseman, who was leaned on heavily in New York. Girardi has failed to top 20 points in three of the last four seasons.

The Rangers are already without Kevin Klein (back spasms) so they only have five healthy defensemen with Girardi out. Consider him as day-to-day and monitor his status prior to Thursday’s game in Boston.
