Yes, Tyler Johnson is back for the Lightning

Things are indeed looking up for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

They’re going with a traditional 12-forward, six-defenseman setup on Monday thanks to the return of forwards Tyler Johnson and Brian Boyle. Blueliner Matt Carle appears to be lost in the shuffle.

Bryan Burns of the Lightning website reports that Johnson is currently centering a line with Alex Killorn and Jonathan Marchessault.

It’s been a season of fits and starts for Johnson, especially from a health perspective, so the Lightning have to hope that the speedy forward can stick in the lineup this time around.
