Cory Conacher will stay with the Tampa Bay Lightning for now.

It was thought that Conacher would be a temporary fill-in with Cedric Paquette serving a one-game suspension, but then he scored for the second time in two games this season against San Jose on Saturday. "He's played well for the time he's been in there," coach Jon Cooper said. "We shuffled the deck a little bit (with lines), but he's played well. Not looking to make any changes as of yet."

Cory Conacher found the back of the net in Tampa Bay's 5-2 win over San Jose on Saturday.

Conacher had been called up on Friday. He's now played in two contests with the Lightning this season over two separate promotions and he's scored a goal in each of those games. He's been effective in the minors too with seven goals and 15 points in 18 AHL contests. "I try to stay motivated and stay positive and not worry about the next day," Conacher said. "I worry about today, and hopefully I can continue to show this organization that I want to be up here and want to contribute to this team up here. Hopefully that shows."

Conacher scored two goals in the Crunchs' Eastern Conference clinching-game against Providence Saturday night and leads all AHL scorers with 20 points in 16 games.
