A road trip for California is almost always foreboding, especially for an Eastern Conference team. Maybe it will help turn around the Tampa Bay Lightning instead?
They’ve won the first two games so far, and now they’re getting Tyler Johnson back to try to sweep through “The Golden State.”
The speedy, if banged-up forward will play against the Los Angeles Kings tonight after missing three games without (the Lightning won’t even bother to tell us).
Johnson’s dealt with some serious peaks and valleys, but this would be a great time to get healthy and start piling up points. He started cold last season, so maybe this is the beginning of a big turnaround?
The Bolts will settle for him helping them beat the Kings, really.
