C Vladislav Namestnikov returned to practice this morning and said he expects to play Tuesday when the Lightning host the Coyotes

C Cedric Paquette also practiced today but was wearing a red no-contact jersey. C Tyler Johnson, the third of the three centers injured March 9 against the Wild, still hasn’t practiced.

The lines during practice: Palat, Point, Kucherov; Killorn, Gourde, Erne; Dumont, Namestnikov, Drouin; Brown, McKegg, Witkowski.

Every game is a big game with 11 games remaining and two points out of the second wild card spot heading into tonight’s Maple Leafs-Bruins game. But Tuesday’s is a bit bigger being the Coyotes are 29th out of 30 teams in points and they play tonight in Nashville.

 

Coach Jon Cooper’s quote of the day: “There’s still a lot of fight left in the dog.”
