The Lightning's 3-2 victory in Las Vegas came with a couple of big casualties.

Victor Hedman, among the NHL's top defensmen, will be out at least a week with an upper body injury. The Norris Trophy winner was injured Friday when he crashed into the boards on a check by Ryan Reaves.

Ondrej Palat, meanwhile, is day to day with a lower body injury sustained after blocking a shot in the third period against the Golden Knights.

The Lightning plays tonight at Arizona.
