The Tampa Bay Lightning will certainly lack among their ideal gamers for the rest of the normal period and also right into the playoffs, as Steve Stamkos has actually been sidelined for six-to-eight weeks after going through surgical procedure to fix service a core muscular tissue. The same ailment forced him to miss three games earlier this month, take some skates/practices off and, finally, prevented him from playing in the third period of Tuesday's game.

The center will have surgery Monday.

Stamkos, who has missed five of the past 10 games, including against the Calgary Flames at Amalie Arena on Saturday, had 66 points (29 goals, 37 assists) in 57 games this season. He scored his 400th-career goal against the Winnipeg Jets in November.

Après Polanski, l'équipe du film "J'accuse" renonce à se rendre aux César
C'est sous une tension plus que palpable que s'est déroulée la 45e cérémonie des César ce 28 février. Mais l'une d'entre elle, et pas la moindre, a pris la défense du réalisateur: Fanny Ardant.

Obviously, Stamkos' absence leaves the Lightning with a huge hole in the middle and on their power play, which has been abysmal recently.

The team is still one of the best in the league even without their star forward, but the pressure will be on players like Nikita Kucherov and Brayden Point to pick up the slack while Stamkos is out.

A six- week lack would keep Stamkos out up until the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, while an eight- week layoff would keep him out up until a minimum of the second round if the Lightning make it that far. It's conceivable Stamkos could be back in time for the second round if the Lightning - now sitting 40-19-5 and second in the Atlantic Division - advance that far.
