Hedman a game time decision vs. Avs


The Tampa Bay Lightning could have defenseman Victor Hedman in the lineup tonight when they play host to the Colorado Avalanche.

Hedman has missed the past two games with a lower body injury.

The 24-year-old has five goals and 20 points in 26 games this season while averaging 21:46 in ice time.

Hedman missed a month and a half of action earlier this season due to a fractured finger.

Tonight is the first of two meetings between the Avs and Lightning this season.
