Braydon Coburn has seen his role decline dramatically over the last few years.
Coburn has gone from averaging 22:26 minutes per game in 2013-14, to 19:56 minutes (albeit in just 43 contests) last season, to 16:19 minutes in his first full campaign with Tampa Bay in 2015-16. To make matters worse, he's been trending further downwards this season as he's averaged just 14:42 minutes per game in December compared to 17:29 minutes back in October. His decline is made more disappointing by the fact that he's still just 30 years old, although his lack of offensive output in recent years means that this hasn't had a major impact on the world of fantasy sports.

Braydon Coburn is ready to get back into the lineup in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.

He took part fully in Tuesday's morning skate and feels much better after he was limited to 5:43 of ice time on Sunday because of a stomach bug. Coburn stayed on the bench despite the illness in Game 5 just in case he was needed.

Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said that Braydon Coburn was sick during Sunday's 2-0 win over New York.

Coburn was stuck on the bench for most of the game and now we know why. The 30-year-old played just 5:43 throughout the contest. His absence didn't hurt his team too much, as Tampa Bay was able to pull out a 2-0 win at Madison Square Garden. The Lightning now hold a 3-2 series lead.

Braydon Coburn's first goal of the playoffs proved to be the game and series winner for the Tampa Bay Lightning Wednesday night.

The defenseman broke a goalless tie at 3:58 of the third period in the Lightning's 2-0 shutout win over the visiting Detroit Red Wings. An empty-net goal later in the period by Anton Stralman sealed the victory and the Wings were eliminated in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference First Round series. Tampa Bay was down 3-2 in games before beating the Wings in Detroit Monday and blanking them at home Wednesday night. Stralman's goal also was his first of the postseason. Coburn's goal came on the Lightning's 14th shot, their seventh at even strength, after the Red Wings dominated the first two periods but were not rewarded with a lead. Coburn, obtained prior to the NHL trade deadline from the Philadelphia Flyers, took a pass through the slot from Ryan Callahan and one-timed a slap shot to the opposite top corner behind Wings goalie Petr Mrazek. The Lightning now advances to the Eastern Conference Second Round Series against the Montreal Canadiens. The series opens Friday night in Montreal.

Braydon Coburn (lower body) thinks he's almost at 100%.

"I think it’s a possibility (to play Thursday)," Coburn said. "I don't know if it's a foregone conclusion yet, but I'm trying to get myself to that position where if it is a possibility then I can step in." That's in line with Lightning head coach Jon Cooper's statement that Coburn is "questionable to probable" for Game 1. Coburn hasn't played since March 10.

Braydon Coburn (lower body) has been described as "questionable to probable" for Game 1.

We'll take that to mean that the odds of Coburn playing are better than 50-50. He had a goal and 11 points in 43 regular season games. He hasn't played since March 10, so rust might be a factor.

"I think it's a day-by-day thing right now, just kind of evaluating how the next day feels and how my body responds," Coburn said. "I went out there today, felt pretty good. Not 100 percent, but it was a good skate." He is hoping to be ready to play when Tampa Bay plays Game 1 of the postseason.

Braydon Coburn's undisclosed injury is related to his lower body.

Whatever is bugging Coburn, it's not related to the foot he already broke twice this season. He will miss the next four-to-six weeks though, which means that we shouldn't expect him to be back before the playoffs. He has a goal and 11 points in 43 games this season.
