Cory Conacher scored a goal in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

Conacher gave the Lightning a 1-0 lead late in the first period, but that was the only offense they could muster against the worst team in the Eastern Conference. Conacher finished the night with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes and three shots on goal in 9:01 of ice time. Dan Girardi and Yanni Gourde registered the assists on Tampa Bay's only goal. Conacher shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar.

"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 has been outstanding in the AHL playoffs leading the Syracuse Crunch to the Calder Cup finals.

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. Despite his AHL heroics, Conacher will have a challenge making the Lightning out of training camp next season. He has demonstrated some NHL competency but is very inconsistent, which to date, has cost him a permanent NHL roster spot.
