Victor Hedman's lower-body injury will sideline him for three-to-six weeks.
Hedman left Thursday's contest after he suffered a knee-to-knee collision with Flames forward Garnet Hathaway. He's a major part of the Lightning's success as he's recorded six goals and 33 points in 44 contests while averaging 25:37 games per season. If there's a silver lining for the Lightning, it's that they're already in a comfortable position thanks to their 31-10-3 record and unless Hedman suffers a setback, it looks like he'll be back well before the playoffs.
