Lightning's Malone out 3-4 weeks

The SportsXchange

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ryan Malone will miss 3-4 weeks with a lower-body injury, head coach Guy Boucher told the Tampa Bay Times.

The team placed Malone on injured reserve Monday, one day after he was hurt warming up ahead of a 5-1 loss to the New York Rangers.

"He was just warming up before the game, and it tightened up," Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman told the paper, adding that the injury could be muscle-related, rather than anything structural.
