Lightning brace for potential Hedman absence vs. Jackets

While revenge surely is on the minds of the Tampa Bay Lightning, the status of defenseman Victor Hedman is the bigger issue heading into Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday afternoon in Toronto.

Hedman sustained a lower-body injury during the first period of Tampa Bay's 4-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

There isn't an official word on the severity of Hedman's injury, however Lightning coach Jon Cooper said "when your perennial Norris Trophy finalist is out, that creates a hole.
