TAMPA — Lightning forward Brandon Hagel is in the lineup for Game 3 of their second-round series against the Panthers this afternoon at Amalie Arena.

Hagel, who missed Saturday’s practice at TGH Ice Plex in Brandon for body maintenance, was a game-time decision. He has four points, including three assists, in the first nine postseason games.

AHL Syracuse’s Cole Koepke and Darren Raddysh joined the Lightning for practice on Saturday and were listed on Sunday’s roster report along with teammates Gage Goncalves, Simon Ryfors, Fredrik Claesson, Alex Barre-Boulet, Remi Elie, Gabriel Fortier, Anthony Richard, Maxime Lagace and Hugo Alnefelt. None, however, were on the ice for pregame warmups.

For the Panthers, forward Maxim Manin replaced Anton Lundell, as interim coach Andrew Brunette said he would earlier Sunday. Lundell missed his first game of the postseason.

Manin previously played in Games 5 and 6 of the first-round series against Washington, contributing three shots on goal. Forward Mason Marchment missed his third game of the series and fifth of the postseason.
