Player Notes

  • Jonathan Drouin will play but not on Sunday
    Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said that Jonathan Drouin will play during their second round series against Montreal, but it won't be in game two.

    Advice: "We have a pretty tight knit team in there, and Jo is a pretty big part of our team this year. But to tell him to sit out ... it’s tough for everybody (to hear)," said Cooper. "He’s an extreme talent and he’s getting better and better. This is a learning lesson for him, just as it was for (Nikita Kucherov) last year or any of (those) guys. But we put in the 20 players we feel give us the best chance to play, and probably moving forward here he’s probably going to be in that 20 all the time. Just right now, he’s on the sidelines."

  • Taylor Hall scores hat trick vs. Germany
    Taylor Hall scored a hat trick in Team Canada's 10-0 win over Germany at the World Hockey Championships on Sunday.

    Advice: Canada dominated this game from beginning to end. After a difficult year in Edmonton, it's nice to see Hall healthy and playing well again. Cody Eakin (twice), Aaron Ekblad, Claude Giroux, Tyler Ennis, Sidney Crosby and Matt Duchene also found the back of the net for Canada.

  • Ben Bishop will start against Montreal
    Ben Bishop will get the start in Sunday's game against Montreal.

    Advice: Bishop's body of work in game one was very good. He did have some nervous moments early on, but he was able to calm things down and make some big saves when his team needed them most. We should continue to see a terrific goaltending duel between Bishop and Carey Price in this series. The Lightning lead the best-of-seven series 1-0.

  • Ryan Spooner excited for next season
    After Providence was eliminated from the AHL playoffs last week, Ryan Spooner said he's looking forward to next season.

    Advice: "I’ll stick around here for a bit and sort out some stuff," said Spooner. "Then I’ll go back home. I’m pretty exciting for the season coming up. I’m not happy with how it ended here, but when I played [in Boston] I thought I did well. I’m exciting to go home and work on some stuff, and just come into camp showing I’m there and I’m ready to play the same way I did [in the last two months]." The 23-year-old had eight goals and 18 points in 29 NHL games this season.

  • Palmieri & Beleskey get 1st points of playoff
    Kyle Palmieri and Matt Beleskey each picked up their first points of the playoffs on Friday.

    Advice: The duo were held off the scoresheet in the opening round of the playoffs but got off the schneid against the Flames when Palmieri set up Beleskey. It makes yourself feel a little better," Palmieri said. "Obviously sweeping Winnipeg was awesome from a team aspect. But Matty and I both knew we had a little more to give offensively in getting to the net. We struggled with it a little bit in the Winnipeg series. We had a couple of chances. Sometimes they go in and sometimes they don’t. But especially this time of the year, it feels nice to bear down and get on the scoresheet."
