"If you've been following along with my press conferences, I really don't reveal anything about my lineups," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said on Monday. "You'll have to tune in tonight to find out.

Severely outplayed in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final in losing 4-1 to the Dallas Stars Saturday, the Tampa Bay Lightning appeared optimistic Sunday about seeing their captain, Steven Stamkos, return to game action.

Coach Jon Cooper said Stamkos "is inching his way closer" but declined to specify whether he'd be available for Monday's Game 2.

"I guess there's always a chance, but as of now, I don't think so," Cooper said. "But that's why you've got to tune in and find out."

Steven Stamkos Not Expected In Game 1 Of Finals

Sep 19, 2020 1:43 AM

Lightning captain Steven Stamkos is out, Brayden Point is hurting and Anthony Cirelli is hobbling, too.

The Lightning enter the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday against the Stars with several key players dealing with injuries.

The biggest question remains Stamkos, a two-time Richard Trophy winner who has been chasing an NHL title for 12 seasons. He has yet to play this postseason because of a lower-body injury.

In speaking with the media Friday, Tampa Bay GM Julien BriseBois didn't seem optimistic about the captain's return, at any point, but only went so far as to discuss Game 1.

"He's still rehabbing. We haven't ruled him out," BriseBois said. "I don't expect him in the lineup [Saturday]."
