The Lightning could help the Rocket for their ultimate match against the Crunch

A school club serves first and foremost to help the big club. Both short-term (reminders) and long-term (development)…

In short, the school club helps the big club, and not the other way around.

Where am I going with all this?

Brayden Point suffered a lower body injury (groin? thigh?) ​​in the first period on Saturday night. He left the rink in pain.

He tried to make a comeback in the second period – thanks to pills and injections -, but it was on the bench that he spent the end of the meeting (to encourage and support his family).

Jon Cooper just told us that Point is a questionable case for Game #1 of the series. Lightning vs. Panthers tomorrow evening.

The problem is that if Point is unable to play tomorrow, Jon Cooper will have to dress Riley Nash… and Julien BriseBois will most likely have to recall a striker fromextra Syracuse Crunch.

Since the Crunch plays in the northern United States and the series Lightning vs. Panthers will be played in Florida, it will take at least one striker ready to board in case tomorrow night, right? As the GM of an NHL team, you can’t risk not having 12 forwards ready for a playoff game.

Why is this a problem? Because the Crunch would thus lose one of its best attackers just before its ultimate match #5 against the Rocket. Especially since the first game of the series between the two Florida teams and game #5 between the Rocket AND the Crunch will be played tomorrow night.

Alex Barré-Boulet, Gemel Smith, Gabriel Dumont, Charles Hudon, Daniel Walcott, Cole Koepke and Remi Elie would all be options in the event of a recall.

We agree that the Rocket and its supporters would not cry for the Crunch if one of its players had to be called up before tomorrow night…

Will Julien BriseBois indirectly do the Rocket a favor over the next few hours? We’ll see.

For the moment, no recall has been made for ten days at the Lightning. Will injections and pills be able to work “miracles” tomorrow night?

Note that the Crunch could also be deprived of its #1 goalkeeper for its important game tomorrow. Again, we won’t cry for that in Montreal/Laval…
