Killorn (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday and is listed as day-to-day.
Killorn fell into the boards at the morning skate on Monday and missed last night's game as a result. Originally the Lightning said he was fine and only got the wind knocked out of him, but it has clearly developed into a more serious issue.
Callahan (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday and is listed as week-to-week.
Callahan was injured in the Lightning's loss to the Oilers and will be out for a bit. Head coach Jon Cooper said that things could change into a day-to-day issue if he progresses well. Expect Mike Blunden to play tonight after being recalled this morning. No word on who will move up to the top-line.
Nabokov allowed two goals on 25 shots in a loss to the Devils in his Lightning debut last Tuesday. With Tampa Bay playing in the second game of a back-to-back tonight, they will give Nabokov the nod vs. the Flames. Calgary is 4-3-0 while scoring 2.57 G/PG.
The Lightning have moved Radko Gudas (lower-body) to injured reserve.
Gudas has been out since October 13 and will miss his fourth straight game tonight. He was moved to IR to make room for the Lightning to recall Mike Blunden. He is eligible to be activated from IR whenever he is healthy.
The Lightning have recalled Michael Blunden from Syracuse (AHL).
Ryan Callahan was injured in Monday's game, so recalling Blunden likely means that Callahan will not play on Tuesday vs. the Flames. Blunden has two goals and one assist in four games with Syracuse in his first year with the Lightning organization.
Callahan left Monday's game with a lower-body injury and did not return.
Callahan played just 10:50 compared to his average of 17:45 a night on Monday. The Lightning are back in action on Tuesday in the second game of a back-to-back, so there is a chance that Callahan will not be available; depending on the severity of the injury. If he can't go then there is an open spot on the Lightning top-line next to Steven Stamkos, could it be filled by Jonathan Drouin in his second NHL game? We shall see.
Killorn took a spill in practice this morning, but head coach Jon Cooper said that he was fine and just got the wind knocked out of him and would play tonight. Well, it turns out that was not the case. He is out, Jonathan Drouin will make his NHL debut.
This situation has been a roller-coaster all day long. Originally he was ruled out, then was a maybe when Alex Killorn went down in practice. After the skate, head coach Jon Cooper said Killorn was fine and Drouin would not play. Now, with warmups underway Killorn is not on the ice and Drouin is, so he will make his much anticipated debut.
Gudas will miss his third straight game tonight in Edmonton. The Lightning just lost Victor Hedman to a fractured finger so their blueline is pretty banged up right now. Gudas is expected to miss Tuesday's game as well, but could be back on Friday vs. the Jets.
This was supposed to be the case from the beginning, but when Alex Killorn left practice early, there was some speculation that Drouin may play for him. However, it turns out that Killorn is fine and will play, which means Drouin will have to wait to make his NHL debut. "Playing back to back Friday and Saturday plus traveling Sunday, [Drouin is] not going to play tonight," said head coach Jon Cooper.
Killorn left Monday's practice early, but head coach Jon Cooper said that he just had the wind knocked out of him and he will play tonight. That means that Jonathan Drouin will not go until tomorrow at the earliest.
Bishop stopped 30 of 32 shots in Saturday's win in Vancouver. The win moved Bishop to 3-0-1 with a 1.71 GAA and .933 SV% in his first four starts. It has been a nice start to the year for last year's breakout star. He is a must-start in Edmonton tonight.
Drouin did not take part in line rushes in the early part of the morning skate, but teammate Alex Killorn took a spill in practice and left the ice. Drouin took his spot on a line with Valtteri Filppula and Tyler Johnson, so if Killorn can't play expect Drouin to make his debut.
Hedman will have surgery on his fractured finger on Tuesday; Out 4-6 weeks.
Hedman was injured when he blocked a shot on Saturday and will miss at least one month, possibly longer. He had three goals and four assists in the first five games, so this is a big loss for the Lightning. Expect Anton Stralman to take over on the top power-play unit, with Jason Garrison taking his spot on the second unit.
Hedman likely to miss at least four weeks with a broken hand.
Hedman suffered the injury while blocking a shot in Saturday's game against Vancouver. The is a tough blow to the Lightning blueline and Hedman fantasy owners. The 23-year-old blueliner had followed up a breakout season with three goals and four assists (seven points) in five games. Don't expect to see him until late November or early December. Jason Garrison will likely see an increased power-play role with Hedman out.
