    Lightning's Brayden Point 'highly doubtful' for Game 1 against Panthers

    Star forward Brayden Point is “highly doubtful” for Game 1 of the Lightning’s second-round series against the Panthers Tuesday in Sunrise, coach Jon Cooper said Monday. Point will be considered day-to-day after that, Cooper added. Point was competing for a puck with Maple Leafs defenseman Mark Giordano in the offensive zone late in the first period of Game 7 of their opening-round series Saturday in Toronto when he lost his balance and fell awkwardly into the boards.
