Tampa Bay Lightning

Johnson (upper-body) is expected to make his season debut on Thursday.

Johnson missed the Lightning’s season opener vs. the Panthers last Saturday but will play on Thursday barring a setback in the morning skate. Johnson is expected to skate on the Lightning’s second line with Yanni Gourde and Brayden Point and should see some time on the power-play as well.

Johnson (lower-body) won’t play on Monday but traveled on the two-game road trip.

Johnson will miss his second straight game with a lower-body injury that he suffered last Thursday vs. the Wild. He traveled with the team which suggests he shouldn’t be sidelined longterm, but there’s nothing to suggest that he will play on the trip.
