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. Apr 29 - 10:45 PM

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.
Apr 14 - 5:43 PM

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.
Apr 14 - 12:21 PM

Apr 13 - 4:39 PM

Braydon Coburn (lower body) participated in Tuesday's practice in a no-contact role.

"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.
Apr 7 - 1:32 PM

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.
Mar 12 - 12:29 PM

Braydon Coburn suffered an undisclosed injury in Tuesday's game against Montreal.

He didn't practice Wednesday and it's unclear if he'll be able to play Thursday versus Boston. Coburn has two assists and a plus-3 rating in four games with the Lightning.
Mar 11 - 5:54 PM

Braydon Coburn has averaged 16:26 of ice time in his first three games with the Lightning.

Mar 9 - 11:27 AM

Braydon Coburn will pair with Jason Garrison in his Lightning debut against the Sabres on Tuesday night.

Through 39 games with the Flyers, Coburn posted a goal, nine points, 56 hits, and 56 blocks. He has been averaging 20:14 of ice time and will combine with Garrison to form Tampa Bay's second defensive unit.
Mar 3 - 7:14 PM

Braydon Coburn has been traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The return for the former Philadelphia defenseman included Radko Gudas, along with a first- and third-round picks in 2015. In 39 games this season, Coburn has one goal, nine points, 56 hits and 56 blocks. He has been averaging 20:14 of ice time and will provide some depth to the Lightning back end.

Braydon Coburn (lower body) could return to the Flyers lineup on Sunday.

Coburn suffered the lower body injury on January 12 and has been out of action ever since. He was cleared for contact on Monday and looks to be ready to return. He has a goal and six points in 31 games so his fantasy value likely won't warrant a place in your lineup.
Feb 14 - 10:55 AM

Braydon Coburn (lower body) has been cleared for contact.

Coburn took full advantage of that during Monday's practice, nearly getting into a fight with teammate R.J. Umberger during a three-on-three drill. You know what, I'll say maybe it's my fault," Coburn said of the near sparring match. "I've probably got a lot of stuff built up inside. It's been a frustrating . . . I'm really looking to try to get back into the lineup from this injury, trying to get myself ready to go." Coburn isn't expected to return on Tuesday, but he's getting close.
Feb 10 - 11:27 AM

Braydon Coburn (lower body) skated again on Saturday and will accompany the Flyers on their four game road trip.
