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.

Cory Conacher has been reassigned to Syracuse of the AHL.

He was not needed in Saturday night's game as Jonathan Drouin had sufficiently recovered from the flu and was able to suit up. We're sure we will see Conacher again the next time a Tampa Bay player is injured or under the weather.

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.
