Lightning center Brayden Point was a full participant in Monday's practice, his first with contact since suffering a hand injury in late December.

"It's exciting to get back and work with the guys," Point said.

But while Point said he felt good - and certainly looked good - he has not yet been cleared to play, coach Jon Cooper said. So that means Point likely won't be back for Tuesday's game against the Bruins.

Cooper also said that forward Michael Bournival, who missed Thursday's game with an upper body injury, won't play Tuesday. There's no timetable on his return.

Forward Jonathan Drouin did not practice due to a flight delay, and All-Stars Victor Hedman and Nikita Kucherov were also traveling back from L.A. All three are expected to be available Tuesday.
