Ryan Callahan tallied his first goal of the 2015 playoffs on Tuesday night.

He scored a power-play goal late in the first period after he was sprung on a breakaway by defenseman Anton Stralman. The former Rangers will try to send Tampa Bay into the Stanley Cup Final on Friday when they play in Game 7. Callahan's goal snapped a 24-game playoff drought that dates back to his days with the Blueshirts. He has four points in 18 postseason contests this year.

Lightning head coach Jon Cooper believes that forward Ryan Callahan will score in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final on Sunday.

''Tonight's probably the night he's going to score,'' said Cooper. It's no secret that Callahan hasn't been productive this postseason. The 30-year-old has no points in his last nine games and he has just three assists in 16 postseason games in 2015.

Ryan Callahan wants to contribute more offensively.

He hasn't earned a points in eight straight games. "There's no question I have to contribute," said Callahan. "I have to put goals in the net. I have to put points on the board. That's a department I need to improve on." He added that he will try to go hard to the net more and play in the gritty areas, which is how he's had success in the past. Callahan has no goals and three assists in 15 postseason matches.

Ryan Callahan played 14:46 in his return to the lineup on Saturday afternoon.

Callahan had an emergency appendectomy during Tampa Bay's second round series against Montreal, but he was able to return and play in Game One against the Rangers. "I felt good. No real issues,’’ Callahan said. "I was telling the truth, a lot depended on how I felt (Friday) in practice and how I felt after. I kind of knew (Friday) night that as long as I woke up fine that I would be able to play.’’ Callahan finished the night with a minus-1 rating, two hits and one blocked shot.
May 17 - 10:11 AM

As anticipated, Ryan Callahan will play for the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 1 against the New York Rangers.

He's not even a week removed from emergency surgery, yet he's playing for the Lightning on Saturday.
May 16 - 1:05 PM

Tampa coach on Jon Cooper thinks Ryan Callahan will play in Game One Saturday afternoon.

He is taking warmups as we write this and Cooper said the following: "he's a pretty tough kid so I imagine he'll play". We would activate him for the 1:00 pm start.
May 16 - 11:54 AM

Ryan Callahan will make a decision as to his playing status for Game One of the Eastern Conference finals following Saturday morning's warmups.

Game One is scheduled for 1:00 pm Saturday so we should know if Callahan will be suiting up any minute now. The gritty winger has been cleared to play medically following an emergency appendectomy on Monday, but it is just a question as to whether Callahan can tolerate the pain in playing. Stay tuned.
May 16 - 11:22 AM

Ryan Callahan, who had an emergency appendectomy on Monday, will be allowed to play in Game 1 on Saturday if he can manage it from a pain perspective.

In other words it sounds like Callahan is medically cleared to play, although his condition might make that extremely difficult. Callahan was on the ice on Friday, but he didn't take any contact. If he can't play then Jonathan Marchessault will probably stay in the lineup.
May 15 - 6:40 PM

During the 2014-15 regular season, no one scored more goals than Ryan Callahan during the three games between the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers.

Callahan had his best season since 2011-12 with 24 goals and 55 points in 77 games this season, which includes four goals and five points in three games against his former Rangers. Callahan has also tallied a trio of assists through his first dozen playoff games this postseason.

Ryan Callahan was on the ice for Thursday's practice just three days after having an emergency appendectomy.

He hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's Eastern Conference Final opener. The Lightning and Callahan will assess how he feels going into Game 1 against the New York Rangers. Callahan called himself day-to-day and said he felt pretty good on the ice.
May 14 - 12:05 PM

Ryan Callahan is doing well after having an emergency appendectomy late on Monday.

"He's feeling really good," coach Jon Cooper said Tuesday after practice. "The way medical practices are today, it's much easier to come back from them than in the past. We got to it before anything really bad could have happened." There isn't an exact timetable for his return after he was forced to sit out of Game 6.
May 13 - 12:13 PM

Ryan Callahan has been released from the hospital following his emergency appendectomy, but has also been ruled out for Game Six against Montreal.

While Callahan has been ruled out "indefinitely" Coach Cooper has left a glimmer of hope for Lightning fans that he will return soon, "knowing how tough Callahan is, I'll put him closer to the days than the weeks." Callahan has provided just three points, all assists and none versus Montreal, through his first 12 playoff games. However he's at least been a physical force, providing nine blocks, 12 PIMs, and 41 hits thus far. Game Seven will be Thursday night in Montreal should Tampa falter tonight.

Ryan Callahan (emergency appendectomy) hasn't been completely ruled out for Tuesday's game.

Instead Lightning coach Jon Cooper called Callahan "extremely doubtful." Callahan had surgery Monday night. This is probably nothing more than gamesmanship on Cooper's part, but you never know. We would be shocked if Callahan plays, but that doesn't mean it won't happen.
May 12 - 12:29 PM

Ryan Callahan had an emergency appendectomy Monday night.

Callahan is out indefinitely and will definitely be out of action for Tuesday's Game 6 against Montreal as Tampa Bay will try to clinch the series at home. Callahan missed practice on Monday but it was thought he would be ready to go for Game 6 but he had some discomfort in the afternoon and he went to the hospital where doctors discovered he had acute appendicitis. Callahan had only three assists in 12 playoff games but his presence on the ice will be missed.
