The Tampa Bay Lightning have had three goals waved off because of goalie interference.

The Bolts had a goal waved off in Saturday's loss to Washington, after officials decided that Ryan Callahan had prohibited Braden Holtby from stopping a Steven Stamkos shot. "I feel that we are writing the book on it and I don’t know what the right answer is because it’s just a different explanation every time,’’ Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said. "So it’s really, really frustrating. I don’t know, in my eyes only, how that is not a goal. I think something has to be taken into account, too, and take everybody out of the picture and see if the goaltender would have got back. I don’t think he would have, it doesn’t matter who was there."

Ondrej Palat and Tyler Johnson also had two-point nights for the winners with two assists each. Tampa Bay is now 13-4-2. The team is hot, with an 8-1-1 record in its past 10 games and is only a point behind the Montreal Canadiens for first place in the Atlantic Division.

Callahan has six goals and 13 points in 13 games. He’s never had a season with more than 54 points, but this one could be the one he surpasses that mark. Valtteri Filppula also scored and assisted.

Callahan scored once and added two helpers. Playing with Steven Stamkos has helped the gritty winger start fast, with five goals and nine points in nine games. We could be looking at Callahan topping his career-high 54 points from 2011-12, so long as Callahan stays healthy and in the lineup. Tyler Johnson scored twice, with J.T. Brown (goal, two assists), Anton Stralman (goal) and Brian Boyle (goal) potting the other markers. Jonathan Drouin got two assists as well.
Nov 8 - 9:58 PM

Ryan Callahan has been cleared to return to action Saturday night against the Capitals.

He had missed the last 10 days due to a lower-body injury. Activate Callahan immediately as he was skating in Saturday morning's scrimmage on the top line alongside Steven Stamkos and Valteri Filppula on what could be a dominating unit.
Nov 1 - 11:40 AM

Ryan Callahan (lower body) has declared himself ready to return to the Lightning's lineup.

"I'm good to go," Callahan said on Friday. "That's the goal, as long as nothing shows up tomorrow, something that's bugging me from today's skate. But I felt really good today so don't see why not." Tampa Bay has already sent Cedric Paquette to the minors, so the stage is set for Callahan to rejoin the Lightning. He has three goals and five points in six games in 2014-15.
Oct 31 - 6:04 PM

Ryan Callahan (lower body) hasn't been ruled out of playing Thursday, but he said it's more realistic that his return could come on Saturday.

He participated in a full practice on Wednesday and remained on the ice for a little while afterward. "We've been hammering it with treatment and rehab, and it's responded well," Callahan said. "It's improved tremendously." He has been sidelined since Oct. 20.
Oct 30 - 11:38 AM

Ryan Callahan (lower body) skated on his own before joining his teammates for parts of Tuesday's practice.

He took part in some drills in a limited capacity. Coach Jon Cooper said Callahan might be available to play in Saturday's game against Washington, so it's unlikely that he'll be ready for Thursday's game versus Philadelphia. Callahan is listed as day-to-day.
Oct 29 - 12:40 PM
