VICTOR HEDMAN, TYLER JOHNSON INJURED AGAINST PHILADELPHIA

Tampa Bay was dealt a big blow on the road in Philadelphia when recently-named All-Star forward Tyler Johnson and top pair defenseman Victor Hedman left the game against the Flyers with injuries.

Hedman left late in the first period and didn’t return. Johnson played into the second before exiting.

Both players sustained lower-body injuries and didn’t return to the game.

Tampa Bay head coach Jon Cooper said following the game it’s possible the Lightning could call up a player from its affiliate in Syracuse because “there’s a good chance” both Hedman and Johnson will miss the Bolts’ game Tuesday in Boston.

Johnson, who was named to his first NHL All-Star Game on Sunday, leads the Lightning in points (45) and assists (29).

Hedman missed 18 games earlier in the season with a fractured finger but has been a regular in the Lightning lineup since returning November 29 versus Ottawa.

Johnson had an assist against Philly before leaving.
