Lightning Forward Doubtful For Game 4

Brayden Point was forced to miss Game 3 due to his lingering injury. Unfortunately, this trend is likely to continue, as Point has been deemed as doubtful to play Game 4.

The Lightning received good news when head coach Jon Cooper announced that Nikita Kucherov is expected to be in for Game 3, but things aren't perfect with Point out of the lineup. They are simply a much better team when he is healthy.

If Point ends up for sure ruled out for Game 4, we will have to wait and see how the Lightning perform without him. Furthermore, don't be surprised to see Riley Nash get put in the lineup again as his replacement.
