Tampa Bay Lightning Star Won't Play In Game Two

The Tampa Bay Lightning kicked off their first-round series against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the best possible way, picking up an emphatic 7-3 victory on the road, but ahead of game two, there's been many questions surrounding the health of this team.

Unfortunately for Tampa Bay, star defence man Victor Hedman is not taking his place in warmup, and appears to be missing the crucial second matchup of this series as Tampa Bay look to take a commanding 2-0 lead before they head back to their home ice.

If Hedman is missing for any length of time, it will significantly effect the chances of Tampa Bay making their fourth straight Eastern Conference Finals, so they'll be praying that it's just a one game absence for the two-time Stanley Cup Champion.
