Stamkos (lower-body) practiced on Monday and is expected to play in Game 1.

Stamkos missed the final three games of the regular season but it was mostly just to ensure he would be ready for the start of the postseason. Stamkos had another good season, picking up 86 points (27G / 59A) in 78 games and will look forward to actually being healthy for the playoffs this season.

Stamkos (lower-body) will miss the final two games of the regular season.

Stamkos will miss his second straight game with a lower-body injury and won’t play on Saturday either. This isn’t surprising as the Lightning obviously want their star centre to be good-to-go for the playoffs. The plan right now is to have Stamkos practice next week ahead of the postseason.

Stamkos (lower-body) will not play on Tuesday.

Even though Tuesday’s game is really important for the Lightning, Stamkos just isn’t quite ready to play after re-aggravating a nagging lower-body injury on Sunday. With Stamkos out, Brayden Point will centre the Lighting’s top line with Nikita Kucherov and J.T. Miller.

Stamkos (lower-body) is questionable for Tuesday.

Stamkos left Sunday’s game against the Predators and did not return. Tomorrow is a crucial game for the Lightning as they play host to their Atlantic Division foe, the Boston Bruins. Monitor Stammer’s status during the Lightning’s morning skate, his availability for that should be directly related to his availability for the game.

Vasilevskiy led the Lightning onto the ice for warmups.

Vasilevskiy allowed three goals on 29 shots in the Lightning’s loss in Boston on Thursday. He was given two of the last three games off, but will start tonight vs. the Predators. The 23-year-old will be happy to see the calendar flip to April as March was tough on home—5-4-0 with a 4.14 GAA and .883 SV%.
