Lightning Round: Nick Paul is still questionable for tonight’s game
The Syracuse Crunch continue their losing streak
Nick Paul appeared in just four shifts, including one in the third period, after scoring a goal against the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night. As of yesterday’s morning, the Tampa Bay Lightning forward was still dealing with unknown injury as he left the ice after shortly after start of practice session.
Paul seemed to be testing something and, after only a short time on the ice, he has returned to the locker room https://t.co/vMgnYdWywi— Gabby Shirley (@Gabby_Shirley_) November 4, 2022
Nick Paul did some quick stop and starts alongside head athletic trainer Tom Mulligan and now he's exited the ice. We'll see if he comes back out.— Chris Krenn (@Chris_Krenn) November 4, 2022
Nick Paul has been one of the Lightning’s key players recently. He’s currently on a four-game point streak, recording five points (two goals, three assists) over that span. In his absence, the Bolts will potentially return to a 11 forwards/7 defencemen combination.

Victor Hedman, who missed two previous games due to an upper-body injury, skated in a regular jersey at his usual spot alongside Erik Cernak during yesteday’s practice and seems to be ready to return. Zach Bogosian and Anthony Cirelli, who haven’t played this season yet, also appeared on the ice, but were still wearing no-contact jerseys.
The Syracuse Crunch have failed again to secure their second win of the season on Friday’s night. Darren Raddysh and Simon Ryfors each scored a goal in a 3-2 loss against the Charlotte Checkers.

"It was as ugly as humanly possible."
"I got so many letters in the mail telling me how ugly they were."
