Lightning’s Palat expected to miss Game 2

From Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston:

Lightning coach Jon Cooper gave the not-unexpected word this morning ahead of tonight’s game versus Montreal.

Palat, 23, had 59 points in 81 games and could very well be one of the finalists for rookie of the year.

On the bright side, despite losing one of his key forwards, after also losing Game 1 of the series, at least Cooper hasn’t lost his sense of humor:

    Coop cracks me up. Love his joking with the media. We’ll see at game time whether or not he goes
