  • Lightning's Luke Glendening: Ruled out Wednesday

    Glendening will miss Wednesday's matchup with the Maple Leafs due to an undisclosed injury, Gabby Shirley of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    Glendening logged just 3:47 of ice time against the Sabres on Monday before being forced to leave the game because of his injury. Considering the veteran center has registered just one point in his last 22 contests, few fantasy managers figure to be impacted by his absence. The Michigan native had played every game this season before being ruled out for the season finale Wednesday. Austin Watson should slot into the lineup with Glendening on the shelf.

  • Lightning's Steven Stamkos: Nets 40th goal

    Stamkos scored a goal on a team-high seven shots in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Sabres.

    Stamkos got Tampa on the board early in the second period, beating Eric Comrie with a wrister off a Buffalo turnover to tie the game 1-1. The 34-year-old Stamkos has now reached the 40-goal threshold in seven of his 16 NHL seasons. He's been on fire down the stretch, tallying 11 goals and 14 points over his last nine outings. Stamkos will enter Wednesday's season finale with 79 points (40 goals, 39 assists) across 78 contests this year.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Falls to Buffalo

    Vasilevskiy allowed four goals on 34 shots in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Sabres.

    Vasilevskiy has now dropped back-to-back starts, stopping 30 of 34 shots in both outings, after going 9-2-1 with a .922 save percentage across his previous 12 appearances. Overall, the 29-year-old netminder is 30-20-2 on the season with a .900 save percentage and a 2.90 GAA. The Lightning are back in action at home Wednesday in their regular-season finale against Toronto.

  • Lightning's Jonas Johansson: Could return for postseason

    Johansson (lower body) may be an option during the postseason, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports Monday.

    While having Johansson available to serve as the backup will certainly benefit the Lightning, the 28-year-old netminder shouldn't be expected to take the crease for the team any time soon unless Andrei Vasilevskiy suffers an injury. Johansson will end the regular season having made a career-high 26 appearances with a 12-7-5 record, a 3.37 GAA, an .890 save percentage and two shutouts.

  • Lightning's Haydn Fleury: Inching closer to return

    Fleury (undisclosed) is on the ice for practice in a non-contact jersey Monday, Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site reports, and head coach Jon Cooper is hopeful the defenseman will be available for the start of the playoffs, per Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times.

    Fleury will miss the final two games of the regular season, but his presence at practice Monday, albeit in a limited capacity, suggests he could be ready to rock once postseason play gets underway. The 27-year-old has picked up five points while averaging 16:07 of ice time per game through 24 contests as a rotational, bottom-pairing option for Tampa Bay this season.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Tending twine Monday

    Vasilevskiy will protect the home net Monday against Buffalo, according to Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site.

    Vasilevskiy is coming off a 30-save effort in Saturday's 4-2 loss to Washington. He has lost three of his last five outings, posting a .903 save percentage during that span. In 51 appearances this campaign, he has provided a 30-19-2 record with a 2.88 GAA and a .900 save percentage. The Sabres sit 22nd in the league this season with 2.96 goals per contest.

  • Lightning's Tyler Motte: Not skating yet

    Motte (lower body) didn't take part in the morning skate and isn't expected to play Monday against Buffalo, per Gabby Shirley of Bally Sports Florida.

    Motte, who is considered day-to-day, is poised to miss his second straight contest. He has contributed six goals, nine points, 83 shots on net and 97 hits across 69 appearances this season. Motte's next chance to play will be Tampa Bay's regular-season finale against Toronto on Wednesday.

  • Lightning's Dylan Duke: Secures entry-level deal

    Duke agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with Tampa Bay on Monday.

    Duke will forgo his final season at the University of Michigan, having racked up 26 goals and 23 assists in 41 games for the Wolverines. Selected by the organization in the fourth round of the 2021 NHL Draft, the 21-year-old winger figures to report to AHL Syracuse for a season or two before getting a shot at the NHL roster.

  • Lightning's Matt Dumba: Delivering plenty of hits

    Dumba registered three shots and one hit Saturday in a 4-2 loss to the Capitals.

    Dumba has just one assist in 16 games with Tampa Bay since being acquired from Arizona, but he has managed to deliver in other categories. He has 46 hits, 21 blocks and 23 shots while averaging 18:51 of ice time per contest. Dumba's early-career offense in Minnesota has yet to be repeated, which limits his fantasy value.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Dialed in as postseason approaches

    Vasilevskiy made 30 saves in a 4-2 loss to Washington on Saturday.

    Vasilevskiy and Charlie Lindgren put on a show, especially in the second when they traded some massive saves. Despite missing a chunk of 2023-24 following back surgery, Vasilevskiy has delivered a seventh-straight 30-win season. He has also clawed his save percentage to the .900 mark and lowered his GAA to 2.87. Since March 9, he is 9-3-1 in 13 starts. A hot Vasilevskiy headed into the postseason is a danger to any team he faces.

  • Lightning's Anthony Duclair: Fourth 40-point season of career

    Duclair scored a goal in a 4-2 loss to Washington on Saturday.

    Duclair got back on the scoresheet after missing one game with an illness. He was in the right spot at the right time when Brayden Point redirected a shot that deflected off the winger and past Charlie Lindgren. Duclair has seven goals and six assists in 15 games as a member of the Lightning. He has 23 tallies and 17 helpers in 71 games between Tampa and San Jose this campaign. This marks the fourth time in his career that he has reached the 40-point plateau in a season.

  • Lightning's Brandon Hagel: Career year continues

    Hagel scored a goal Saturday in a 4-2 loss to Washington.

    He tied the game 2-2 late in the opening frame when he lifted a backhand shot over Charlie Lindgren's left shoulder from the right circle. Hagel's 75 points (25 goals, 48 assists) and 181 shots are both career highs. With the win, the Bolts nailed down the first wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.

  • Lightning's Anthony Duclair: Ready to rock

    Duclair (illness) will be in the lineup Saturday against Washington, per Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site.

    Duclair will be back on the top line following a one-game absence. He has racked up six goals, six assists, 26 shots on net and 13 hits in 14 games with the Lightning since being acquired from San Jose on March 7. Duclair will replace Tyler Motte (lower body) in Saturday's lineup.

  • Lightning's Haydn Fleury: Out Saturday

    Fleury (undisclosed) will miss Saturday's game against Washington, according to Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site.

    This will be Fleury's third straight absence. He has a goal and five points over 24 appearances in 2023-24. When Fleury is ready to return, he could serve on the third pairing or be a healthy scratch candidate.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Set to face Capitals

    Vasilevskiy is expected to start on the road against Washington on Saturday, according to Tom Gulitti of NHL.com.

    Vasilevskiy has a 30-18-2 record, 2.85 GAA and .901 save percentage in 50 outings in 2023-24. He saved 30 of 32 shots en route to a 5-2 win over Columbus in his last start Tuesday. The Capitals, who have lost seven of their last eight games, are likely to be a favorable matchup for the 29-year-old goaltender.

  • Lightning's Tyler Motte: Labeled day-to-day

    Motte (lower body) is considered day-to-day and isn't expected to play against Washington on Saturday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Motte is expected to be ready to play when the postseason kicks off but he could be sidelined for more than just Saturday's clash with Washington. Considering the 29-year-old center is mired in a 16-game goal drought, during which he's recorded just one assist, few fantasy players figure to be impacted by Motte's absence.
