Brayden point, Tampa Bay Lightning’s Brayden, could be back after injury to play Game 6

TAMPA Lightning Center Brayden Point It hasn’t been ruled out of Game 6 of Eastern Conference Final. This signals a status shift for Tampa Bay’s injured star.

The Lightning won their series against the New York Rangers3-2. They can move on to the Stanley Cup Final with victory on Saturday night.

Point suffered a lower body injury in just 5:51 of Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs on May 14. Since then, he's been out of every Lightning game except Saturday when coach Jon Cooper opened the door for him to return.

Cooper said, “I believe if you see him during warmups, then it's likely that he will be a game-time choice.” Cooper stated Saturday morning that if you don't see him during warmups, it pretty much tells what's happening with him. “We'll check how he feels after the skating.”

Point has been showing signs of improvement. He had been skating after Lightning practices. He skated in full gear June 1. He skated with his teammates at an optional skating session on June 1.

His return would add strength to a already strong Tampa Bay lineup. Point had four points in seven games of the opening round. Point is the only player to have scored more goals (30) in the three NHL postseasons. In 53 games, he scored 60 points.
