Tampa Bay's defense was already questionable last season, but losing Mattias Ohlund makes that spot an even bigger worry. Watch this video to find out more about their situation.

Shots allowed won’t tell you everything, but it’s still troubling that the Tampa Bay Lightning are allowing almost 40 per game so far this season. That’s the most of any team in this young 2011-12 campaign, which isn’t a promising sign since they’re leaning heavily on an old goalie in Dwayne Roloson.

Mattias Ohlund‘s decision to get both knees scoped is a wise one because his mobility has been lousy, but it opens up a big hole on an already shaky defense. Mike Milbury and Keith Jones take a look at a Bolts blueline that could be a serious Achilles heel this season.
