Injuries, illness leave Tampa Bay Lightning short-handed

Dominic Moore is among five Lightning players who could miss Wednesday’s game.

BRANDON — The Lightning might be down as many as five players for Wednesday's game with the Penguins, coach Guy Boucher said, and there is potential for callups from AHL Norfolk.

Out of Monday's practice were center Dominic Moore, who apparently aggravated a preseason groin injury in Sunday's loss to the Predators, left wing Simon Gagne (neck), and defensemen Mattias Ohlund (knee), Matt Smaby (stomach virus) and Brett Clark, whose right wrist was hit by a shot from teammate Vinny Lecavalier on Sunday.

Ohlund, who because of swelling and fluid in his right knee has not played a regular-season game, is cleared to play but is not in game shape, Boucher said.

"He hasn't had any real practices, hard with the players," said the coach, who called Ohlund's chances of playing slim. "We'll have to be careful all year with his knee."

Stamkos' star: Center Steven Stamkos was named the NHL's third star for the week ending Sunday. He had four goals and five assists. Flames left wing Rene Bourque was first star with six goals and three winners. Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak was second with a 2-0-1 record and a 1.62 goals-against average.
