Cory Conacher found the back of the net in Friday's loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

Conacher has jumped up and down between the NHL and AHL this season, so it was nice to see him get rewarded with a goal. It was his first tally since Oct. 11, 2014, when he was a member of the Islanders. He shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar.

The Lightning returned Cory Conacher down to AHL Syracuse on Thursday.

Through two games thus far at the NHL level this season, Conacher has yet to make an impact on the stat sheet. Until he does, we'd leave him on the wire.

Cory Conacher is expected to draw into the Lightning's lineup on Wednesday.

Conacher was summoned this afternoon in case Nikita Kucherov was unavailable. Barring a last minute surprise, Kucherov will indeed miss the contest while Conacher will play alongside Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat.

Tampa Bay has summoned Cory Conacher from AHL Syracuse.

Cory Conacher will be a healthy scratch in Tampa Bay's game against Florida on Monday.

Conacher was recalled from the minors partly because Valtteri Filppula is dealing with a lower-body injury. Filppula being out still won't allow Conacher to get into the lineup.

Cory Conacher has been summoned by Tampa Bay.

It has not been since his time with Ottawa in 2013-14 that one can say Conacher has been an effective NHL'er. He posted four goals and 20 points in 60 games then and in the 35 games with Buffalo, Tampa, and the Islanders he has but nine points since.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have returned Cory Conacher to AHL Syracuse.

The 26-year-old winger played 13:26 in his one game of action while up with Tampa Bay, but did not get on to the score sheet. We wouldn't expect much from him moving forward.

Cory Conacher, who was summoned from the AHL on Friday to replace an injured Nikita Kucherov, played on a line with Valtteri Filppula and Brayden Point Saturday night.

He took one shot on goal and was minus one in the 3-1 loss to New Jersey. Conacher is going to have to play very well to avoid being sent back to the AHL once Kucherov is healthy again, which could be as soon as Thursday against Boston.

Cory Conahcer seems to be winning over Tampa coach Jon Cooper.

Conacher scored the tying goal in the third period of a 4-3 overtime loss to Nashville. Of Conacher, Cooper had this to say after the game: "That was a Cory Conacher goal — an instinctive shot in the slot. That's what that kid can do. When he shoots, the puck has eyes for him." Cooper coached Conacher in the AHL in 2011-12 and seems to believe in him. With Ryan Callahan out until mid-November recovering from hip surgery, Conacher seems poised to grab a roster spot.

Cory Conacher scored an unassisted goal at the 03:07 minute mark in the third period to tie the game. Twelve minutes later, it came to naught as Cody Bass scored the game winner and handed the Tampa Bay Lightning a 4-3 loss against the Nashville Predators.
