Johnson is nearing a return to the Lightning lineup, but it won’t be against the Red Wings tonight. Johnson ditched his non-contact sweater this morning, which is a big step forward, so monitor his status prior to Saturday’s game vs. the Canadiens.

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.
